The pageview of China’s train tickets booking system averages 1.4 billion and more than one million tickets are sold each day.

Some popular tickets were sold out in just half an hour. Increasing visitors almost paralyzed the website and made it more difficult to log in. Some passengers said that they had spent about three hours but still cannot get into the system.

The railway department said about 108,000 communication lines have been put into use. And it reminds passengers to book tickets online or through telephones.

Since Jan. 8, about 2.2 million passengers have got train tickets each day via the internet or telephone, which accounts for 36 percent of the total selling.
