Lost train tickets no longer mean lost seats


08:25, May 03, 2012

BEIJING, May 2 (Xinhua) -- Mislaid your train ticket? It won't affect you trip after May 10, as China's railway authority is to allow passengers to buy a replacement ticket and reclaim booked seats from that date.

The Ministry of Railways said Wednesday it is planning to roll out the measures to protect the interests of real-name ticket holders.

Those with lost train tickets can go to the ticket office no less than 20 minutes before ticket checking stops, show identification and some ticket information, and purchase a new ticket that will allow them to use the seats they originally booked, the ministry said.

China has applied the real-name ticketing system to all trains since the beginning of this year to curb the ticket scalping that typically thrives during the Lunar New Year travel rush.
