There will be no platform tickets from Beijing West during the holidays. Times when platform tickets will not be available are from 12:00 on 28 September 2013 to 24:00 on 07 October 2013.
The railways anticipate a very visible increase in passenger flow during the October Chinese National Day week-long holiday. As a result, the Beijing West Railway Station will suspend sales of platform tickets during the above times, in order to ensure the safety of passengers both in the stations and boarding or exiting trains.
People seeing off passengers are kindly requested to proceed no further than Ticket & ID Check. Visitors picking up passengers, please wait at the exits. To ensure that you meet your guest at the right location, it is always a good idea to call your guest early to arrange or to confirm what exit will be used, as Beijing West is a big station!
