Train Tickets During Chinese New Year Sold Out in 20 Minutes|台鐵春節訂票網頁順暢 熱門時段20分售完

The Taiwan Railways Administration did a trial run of its new, updated ticket booking website. As a result, the ticketing process on the web went more smoothly compared to previous years. Within 20 minutes, tickets for the more popular routes were all sold out.

The new and updated ticket booking website of the Taiwan Railway Administration (TRA) has been much more streamlined than before. One only needs to enter the point of departure and number for specific trains to find out whether the tickets have been booked. In the past, one had to wait for a while for the system to process all the information.

I once bought two tickets to travel from Kaohsiung City to Chishang Township in two stages. I wasn't easy to get those tickets.

I always bought tickets for whichever trains that still remained. So I felt the purchase process was somewhat easy.

Many among the public have felt the speed increase for the new website. Since the ticket sale began early morning, over 220,000 tickets have been sold by 9 a.m. Tickets for the more popular trains, such the southbound Tze-Chiang Express Trains traveling to Taitung and Hualien on the Lunar New Year's Eve, and the northbound trains scheduled for January 4th of lunar calendar have all been sold. The TRA said that they stress-tested the new website before opening it to public use, hence the purchase process was quite smooth for everybody. Those who haven't got their hands on tickets could still purchase seats that are registered in their names.

Our initial goal was to make sure the public could complete the booking process swiftly. Based on our observation, over 70,000 tickets were sold in the first 10 minutes.

Freeway Bureau has also announced measures that will be put in place to minimize highway congestions during the upcoming Chinese New Year holidays. All highways will be toll-free between January 23 and January 29. On the morning of the first, second and third day on the lunar calendar, the southbound section of National Freeway No.5 will be limited to vehicles with at least three passengers. Similar limits will be imposed on Highway No.5 and the northbound directions of highways in western Taiwan on the afternoon of day three, four and five on the lunar calendar.

進入台鐵春節訂票效能版網頁訂票服務,訂票頁面較原有的網頁選項簡化許多,輸入起訖點後,打入車次代碼,按下訂票,沒有像過去網頁出現"當機轉圈圈"的狀況,馬上就知道有沒有訂到票。

民眾表示:「我有一次從高雄到池上,買了兩段票,後來…不是很好買。」

民眾表示:「我都撿剩下的班次,所以我覺得還滿好買的。」

不少民眾實際體驗覺得速度變快,凌晨開賣截至上午九點,已經有超過22萬筆訂票,熱門時段,小年夜南下往台東花蓮自強號車票都已經賣完,年初四早上八點後北返自強號也都已經賣完,台鐵強調,今年訂票網頁經過壓力測試,因此過程相當順暢,還未買到票的民眾可以利用接下來的實名制列車。

台鐵局運務處營業科科長 許民杰表示:「我們當初設定的目標,是讓民眾很快就進入到,我們的票務系統做訂票的動作,最大量的部分,我們觀察到的是,前面十分鐘,它就已經完成了,將近七萬多筆的訂票紀錄。」

而高速公路局也公布今年春節疏運措施,從1月23日到29日,國道全線,暫停收費,初一到初三的上午,國道5號南向,將實施高乘載管制,初三到初五下午,國5和西部國道北向入口匝道,也會有高乘載管制。
