Zhu Mingrui, a deputy to the National People's Congress (NPC) and general manager of the Qinghai-Tibet Railway Corporation, said that tickets were in short supply for a period of time last year due to the tourist influx into Tibet. On August 1, 2007, a temporary Xining-Tibet train was added by the Qinghai-Tibet Railway Corporation to ease the pressure of train traffic running into Tibet. In the face of an upcoming peak in travel, the Qinghai-Tibet Railway Corporation decided that as of May 1, there would be two additional temporary trains running into Tibet. In effect, this measure would prevent the earlier difficulties in obtaining tickets.

Zhu Mingrui said that the Qinghai-Tibet Railway will not implement a seasonal price fluctuation policy; will strictly enforce ticket prices stipulated by the Ministry of Railways; and will not change prices during peak periods of tourism.
