Ticket-Less Travel on Guangzhou-Shenzhen Train Just Launched!
02 Dec 2019
Yesterday, Sunday, December 1st, a new payment method for riding the Guangzhou-Shenzhen line intercity train officially opened. This new method allows passengers to ride the Guangzhou-Shenzhen Intercity Train without needing to purchase tickets in advance. Now, you can scan and ride the train just like you do the subway.
According to the Passenger Transport Department of the Guangzhou Railway Group, the Guangzhou-Shenzhen intercity line has a daily average of 85 pairs of trains, sending 106,000 passengers.
In order to handle increasing passenger flow and improve passenger travel comfort, the railway department and WeChat payment team have come up with a solution.
From December 1st, a new WeChat mini-program payment service was launched at all stations on the Guangzhou-Shenzhen intercity line. The new system is estimated to effectively save more than 15 minutes per passenger on average.
A spokesperson for the railway said that the newly launched WeChat payment system is based on verified real-name information, plus face recognition verification, to ensure that passengers are buying tickets themselves.
