Passengers will be able to book tickets for the CRH (China Railway High-speed) from Friday, reports Beijing Times.
All tickets for G/D/C-prefaced high-speed trains can be booked on www.12306.cn, according to a plan drawn up by the ministry of railways. Users must register their details, book tickets with their ID cards and pay online. Travelers can then collect their purchased tickets at designated ticket kiosks.
Passengers can also order tickets by calling 95105105, and payment can be made at the ticket kiosks.
The online service, www.12306.cn, and phone number for the railway service center, 12306, can also be used to make suggestions, enquiries and complaints.
This year saw big changes in the way that rail tickets can be purchased. Beijing began using a phone service in July, allowing travelers to book their tickets in advance. Now, passengers will be able to book tickets for all high-speed train routes online.
