Almost 3 Billion Journeys Recorded during China’s Spring Festival Holidays

BEIJING – A total of 2.97 billion journeys were made this year during China’s 40-day holiday period celebrating the Spring Festival, which marks the Lunar New Year, the Chinese transport ministry reported on Tuesday.

The Spring Festival, known as “Chunyun,” started 15 days ahead of New Year’s day on Feb. 16 and ended on Monday.

It is China’s busiest travel season, as millions of people return to their hometowns for family gatherings to celebrate the holiday.

The recent development of a high-speed train network has relieved often crowded slower train services.

Days before the spring festival began, the China Railway Corporation announced that many lines would temporarily operate extra trains to transport up to 1.5 million more passengers every day, and that high-speed night trains would be introduced.

According to data published by official news agency Xinhua on Tuesday, 74.8 percent of passengers said they were satisfied or felt an improvement in the transport system this year, a 3.8 percent rise from last year.
