In addition to the full online standby ticket purchase service, the high-speed railway trunk line and most intercity railways promote e-ticket, promote the full coverage of self-service real name system of stations in cities above prefecture level cities, and realize the arrival of passengers with ID cards.
In terms of high-speed rail, more than 10 new lines have been opened, which will ease the shortage of transportation capacity in relevant labor export areas. On December 30, 2019, Beijing Zhangjiakou high-speed railway was put into operation. The Beijing Zhangjiakou high-speed railway line is connected with two high-speed railways from Zhangjiakou to Hohhot and from Zhangjiakou to Datong opened on the same day to the West and Beijing hub to the East.
In addition to the above three routes, in 2019, there are also many railways opened, such as Zhengzhou Fuzhou high-speed railway, Beijing Hong Kong high-speed railway Changgan section, Chengdu Guiyang high-speed railway, Guizhou Changzhou Railway, Chongli railway, Xuyan high-speed railway, Lianzhen high-speed railway donghuai section, Dunhuang railway, etc. According to the data of China Railway Group, 8489 kilometers of new railway lines will be put into operation in 2019, including 5474 kilometers of high-speed railway. By the end of that year, the national railway operating mileage had reached over 139000 kilometers, including 35000 kilometers of high-speed railway, and the railway transportation capacity had been greatly improved.
In terms of air transportation, Feng Zhenglin, director of Civil Aviation Administration, said publicly that in 2019, there will be 39 ten million airports in China; the adjustment of one flight route with the widest scope and the greatest impact in the history of civil aviation of China will be completed, with 9275 kilometers of new routes added; 229 airports and major airlines can realize “paperless” travel. In addition, Beijing Daxing International Airport will usher in the first “big test” of Spring Festival transportation. It is expected that Daxing airport will guarantee 1.9 million inbound and outbound passengers and 12500 inbound and outbound flights at that time; 312 daily flights, an increase of about 15% compared with normal times.
In terms of highway transportation, according to the Ministry of transportation, 487 provincial toll stations in 29 interconnected provinces have been cancelled since 0:00 on January 1, 2020, and the goal of “basically canceling the task of highway provincial toll stations within two years” and “striving to be ahead of schedule” proposed in the 2019 government work report has been completed. The realization of electronic toll collection (etc) will improve the efficiency of highway traffic.
In addition to these new changes, it is expected that 220000 volunteers will be active in the front line during the Spring Festival, providing guidance, consultation, order maintenance, emergency rescue and other services for passengers, becoming a beautiful scenery line of the Spring Festival. Zhao Chenxin, spokesman of the national development and Reform Commission, pointed out that on the whole, the contradiction between supply and demand of Spring Festival transportation will be further alleviated as the transportation facilities become more perfect, people’s travel modes become more diversified and choices become more abundant. “There are still some new and old problems that need to be solved step by step,” he said

All departments release “big move” to relieve the pressure of Spring Festival Transportation
Due to the early start of Spring Festival this year, in order to ensure the high overlap of students flow, migrant workers flow and visiting relatives flow before the festival, various departments have issued corresponding measures to ensure the travel of passengers.
The measures adopted by the Ministry of public security include: early warning in time, comprehensive implementation of traffic safety navigation prompt service nationwide; preparation in advance, development of traffic diversion and diversion scheme around key areas, node periods and road sections prone to congestion; strengthening emergency response, and further improving the scientific and refined level of traffic emergency management in severe weather.
The Ministry of transport will focus on the following five aspects: comprehensively increasing the supply of transportation capacity, strengthening the connection of comprehensive transportation services, strengthening the guidance of passenger travel, fully ensuring the smooth road network, and innovating the service measures for the convenience of the people.
CAAC has taken three measures: first, to increase transportation capacity as a whole. As of January 8, the competent civil aviation authorities have received 17600 overtime flights applied by airlines during the Spring Festival transportation. In the later stage, airlines will continue to increase or adjust some flights to meet the travel needs of the majority of passengers. Second, ensure the normal flight. Pay close attention to the impact of severe weather on flight normality, further improve the emergency plan for on-board delay and the emergency plan for large-scale flight delay, and do a good job in handling delay and passenger service in severe weather. Third, implement measures to facilitate the people. For example, the National Airport passenger sharing service platform app will be launched one after another, and the national unified query platform for lost items of civil aviation passengers will be launched.
The national railway administration mainly takes five measures to deal with: first, to maximize the transportation capacity; second, to comprehensively promote the high-speed railway electronic ticket; third, to improve the service quality of ordinary station cars; fourth, to implement standby ticket purchase for all passenger trains; fifth, to continuously promote the station unblocked project.
In view of the high superposition of migrant workers’ and students’ passenger flow before the festival and the possible peak of passenger flow at the beginning of the Spring Festival, Zhao Chenxin said, “this year is the earliest year of the Spring Festival in the past few years, so the peak of passenger flow before the festival comes earlier and more urgent, but the more so, the more we try our best to let the people enjoy a smooth, warm and safe journey.”

More measures to “escort” the Spring Festival
In order to ensure that passengers “walk safely”, “smoothly” and “comfortably” during the Spring Festival, all departments also supervise the ticket price and “aircraft noise” dominating seats, so as to “escort” passengers.
In terms of price supervision, the Ministry of transport, together with the national development and Reform Commission, issued the opinions on deepening the road transport price reform, which proposed that during the Spring Festival and holidays, no special price increase policy should be implemented for the ticket price of shuttle bus passenger transport. In addition, online car Hailing platform companies should actively open the pricing and markup mechanism.
In terms of safety supervision, the Ministry of public security pointed out that it is necessary to investigate the potential violations of laws and regulations that are easy to cause accidents and disasters, strictly control key vehicles such as “two customers, one dangerous goods”, strictly check serious violations such as “three super one fatigue”, drunk driving, etc., strictly punish prominent crimes such as “killing customers”, “ticket pouring”, “stealing, robbing and deceiving”, and strictly crack down on violations such as “mechanical disturbance”, “vehicle disturbance” and “dominating seat”, etc., which are harmful to transportation order and operation safety For.
In order to encourage cross peak travel, nine departments, including the national development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of transport, recently issued the opinions on doing well in spring transportation in 2020, proposing to “promote preferential measures for return to air train fares and encourage” reverse spring transportation “.
Reverse spring festival, that is, some old people go to their children’s work place for the new year. According to the travel forecast report of Spring Festival 2020 released by goldmap, the reverse spring festival has maintained a continuous growth trend in recent years. In addition, Feizhu report revealed that the reverse spring festival has maintained an average growth rate of 30% in the past two years, and this year is expected to grow for the third consecutive year.
