Floating ticket price can guide passengers to travel at staggered peak

At the end of April 2018, the floating fare was implemented in Beijing Shanghai dynamic sleeper train.

In February 2016, according to the notice on the reform and improvement of passenger ticket price policy for high-speed rail multiple units issued by the national development and Reform Commission, the fare adjustment mechanism of high-speed rail multiple units was released, and China Railway Corporation, which was reformed by the Ministry of railways, was officially given the right to set its own price. The price of EMU was adjusted by the market, which was determined by the transportation enterprises according to the market competition. Sun Zhang, a railway expert and professor of Tongji University, believes that the implementation of fare floating mechanism is the choice made by the railway department based on the railway market-oriented reform. The rise and fall of high-speed rail ticket price actually reflects the adjustment role of price lever. By guiding passengers to travel at staggered peak, the railway transport capacity can be balanced, so as to improve economic benefits. It is a common practice in market economy countries to determine the price according to market factors, but passengers will vote with their feet. If the ticket price is out of line, we will definitely choose other modes of transportation. Sun Zhang said. Source: Wang Xiaowu, editor in charge of Beijing News_ NF
