Beijing-Shanghai high-speed rail, Wuhan-Guangzhou high-speed rail, Zhengzhou-Xi’an high-speed railway, Shanghai-Nanjing high-speed rail, etc. will run 300 kilometers per hour EMU. This means that the majority of China’s current high-speed rail fares will be floating.
Previously, high-speed rail in the part-time attendance is low, “Yun seat” and other popular questions. Some experts have suggested that “China’s ubiquitous high-speed rail fares are too high, consider using more level-vote system, to attract more tourists choose to travel, even during the low season, the same can be taken as air fares discount to attract visitors avoid Kongshi high rate. ”

The leaders asked Beijing to investigate railway, Beijing-Tianjin inter-city passenger on the reasons for lack of formation of such reports. To this end, Beijing railway department has to investigate whether the Beijing-Tianjin inter-city fares are too high, resulting in long-distance bus passenger turned to other modes of transportation?
then once there is news that “the Beijing-Tianjin inter-city brewing in the low-peak hours to implement fare discount.” Ultimately, Beijing railway department investigation concluded that the main seasonal passenger less, “the high fares,” not as a major factor, “discount to say” quiet down.
railway insiders, including floating and floating discount fares. In the passenger side, has practiced in the spring period, fares go up, but also to implement a discount on travel to Hong Kong train, but not for EMU fares for large discount. If the discount for EMU, should choose low-peak season, low passenger flow peak periods, such as the extremely early morning or late at night issued the train arriving trains.
Currently, the Ministry of Railways EMU has not yet announced specific programs fare fluctuations. A rail experts believe that it demonstrates to the market near the railway, more willing to follow the laws of the market development.
