Railway authorities are rolling out two new types of tickets to be sold at a discount for intercity travel between Beijing and Tianjin - a ticket good for 60 trains within 30 days, and a 20-ride ticket that must be consumed within 90 days.
The new tickets will provide convenience for frequent commuters, China Railway Beijing Group said. The discount prices were not announced.
Six rail transit stations along the Beijing-Tianjin intercity line will make the customized tickets available starting on Tuesday.
After purchasing one of the new ticket types, passengers can make seat reservations online or via mobile app. Or they can board without a reservation by directly swiping their identification cards at a railway station ticket check gate.
