Ticket sales for inter-city rail to start Sept. 10
    2018-09-04  08:53    Shenzhen Daily

TICKET sales for travelers from Hong Kong to the mainland through the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link will start Sept. 10.

Travelers can purchase tickets to 44 mainland destinations at 23 counters in West Kowloon Station via various payment methods, such as Octopus, Alipay and WeChat Pay, according to a report by DT News, a news app of the Shenzhen Special Zone Daily on Sunday, quoting MTR Operation Director Lau Tin-shing.

Passengers can print their tickets at machines with travel permits for Hong Kong and Macao residents as well as second-generation mainland resident IDs. No more than 10 tickets can be bought at a time, the report said.

For the time being, travelers who intend to take the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link are unable to purchase tickets online at www.12306.cn, the ticket booking website of China Railway, according to Lau.

Speaking to media at an open day over the weekend, Lau said that the working teams are still discussing the arrangements for online ticket booking.

More than 20,000 local residents participated in the open day event at the West Kowloon terminus, where the 26-km Hong Kong section of the Guangzhou-Shenzhen-Hong Kong Express Rail Link will open Sept. 23, joining the national high-speed rail network.

Lau also reminded the public that the baggage allowance on the express trains will be in line with the mainland limit, meaning that passengers can only carry luggage with combined dimensions (length, height and width) of no more than 130 cm.

For passengers who exceed the limit, Lau said a courier service could be arranged through a vendor to send the excess luggage to the intended destination. Details on this will be rolled out later.
