Hubei Daily (Reporter Liu Yu, Correspondent Meng Li, Dai Nengyue) You can get in the car without having to pick up a ticket, swipe your ID card, and QR code on your mobile phone. On November 19, it was learned from the China Railway Wuhan Bureau Group Co., Ltd. that from November 20, there will be a total of 11 stations along the Hanxiao Intercity Hankou Station and Houhu Station, as well as the Hewu Passenger Dedicated Line Macheng North Station and Honganxi Station. The station took the lead in piloting online e-ticketing and no longer issued paper tickets. Equipment is being installed and commissioned along the Han-Ten high-speed rail stations, and electronic tickets are expected to be available by the end of the month. This means that the Hubei Railway has since entered the "electronic ticket" era, and paperless rides have become a reality.
E-tickets, also known as "paperless" tickets, passengers do not need to collect tickets after ordering tickets through the Internet, and can only ride on the bus with a valid ID or the QR code received on the mobile phone after purchase. Relevant persons in the Wuhan Railway Department said that the electronic ticket is to separate the three functions of the passenger transport contract, ride, and reimbursement carried by the original paper ticket, to realize the electronicization of the transport contract voucher, the paperlessness of the ride voucher, and the provision of reimbursement vouchers on demand. . With the implementation of e-tickets, passengers will be able to purchase tickets, check in tickets, and ride buses more easily and quickly.
It is understood that when passengers purchase tickets through manual ticket windows, automatic ticket machines, etc., they will receive a ticket purchase information sheet with information such as trip number, pit stop, waiting room, etc .; passengers who purchase tickets through the 12306 website and clients, You can print or download the ticket information form by yourself. However, the ticket purchase information sheet is only used as a reminder for passengers to purchase tickets, and is not used as a voucher.
When entering or leaving the station, passengers holding the People's Republic of China Identity Card, Permanent Residence Permit for Foreigners, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan Resident Residence Permits, Hong Kong and Macao Residents 'Mainland Passes, and Taiwan Residents' Mainland Passes can automatically read documents at the self-service gate. "Brush" the original valid ID of the passenger, you can enter the station. When you swipe your phone to enter the station, you can directly scan the code to enter and exit the station based on the dynamic QR code of the ticket purchase.

Passengers holding account books and other non-automatic identification documents or children's tickets can enter and exit the station through the manual ticket gate.
During the boarding process, passengers must take the seat number and seat number shown on the ticket purchase information. If you need to change the ticket, refund the ticket, if you use the electronic payment method to purchase the ticket and haven't exchanged the reimbursement certificate, you can change it by yourself through the 12306 website or 12306 client. Passengers must go to the designated window of the station.
