Train tickets for groups will now be sold online

RAILWAY tickets for the peak travel period during Chinese New Year will be available online for group bookings for the first time, Shanghai's railway operator said yesterday.

Supply can not meet the high demand for railway tickets during the Chinese New Year period and railway officials said buyers will still need "some luck."

Advance booking starts tomorrow and ends on January 14. Group buyers can reserve tickets with departure dates from January 20 to February 8. The Spring Festival begins on February 10.

"Group bookings were very popular among out-of-town workers last time," said Li Jun, the head of Shanghai Railway Station. "We expect more this come."

In the last travel rush earlier this year, 250,000 tickets were purchased through group bookings.

Li said those who don't get a group ticket can still queue at ticket booths or wait for extra train services to be added.
