BEIJING - Train passengers are welcoming the authorities' plan to sell train tickets online but remain concerned that the system will not be that user-friendly.

Tickets for Z nonstop express trains will go on sale online nationwide on Sunday, and sales for the T express trains will begin on Dec 10, the Ministry of Railways said on Thursday.

Passengers can log on at, the ministry's official online ticket-booking website, to buy train tickets.

The website began to sell train tickets online in June, but only for high-speed trains like the G and D fast trains, and the C intercity express trains.

More passengers have shifted from buying tickets at railway stations and ticket outlets to telephone and online bookings, which eliminates the aggravation of waiting in line and may also help curb ticket scalping.
