Railway children’s tickets to be divided by height to age
With the improvement of living standards, children’s heights are generally “good growth”. It is not uncommon for a 6-year-old boy to grow into a “half man” of more than 1.3 meters. Although relatives and friends praise the child’s height, parents are pleased. When taking trains and high-speed trains, I often encounter troubles about buying tickets. Due to their height, these children can only buy “adult” tickets when they go out for transportation and travel.
According to news on October 31, according to the website of the Ministry of Transport, recently, the National Railway Administration’s public comment on the “Regulations for Railway Passenger Transport (Draft for Comment)” stated that:The child ticket of railway passenger ticket is planned to be divided by height from height to age, and the real-name ticket system will be implemented. Children over 6 years old and under 14 years old can purchase child discount tickets, and children over 14 years old should purchase full-price tickets.
The draft said that in the implementation of the real-name ticket system, children over 6 years old and under 14 years old can purchase child discount tickets; children over 14 years old should purchase full-price tickets.
Each adult passenger with a ticket can bring a child under 6 years old who does not occupy a seat alone on the bus;When there is more than one child, the number of children shall be discounted.
It is worth mentioning that if the real-name ticket system is not implemented, children with a height of 1.2 meters and less than 1.5 meters can purchase a child discount ticket; children with a height of 1.5 meters should purchase a full-price ticket.
Each adult passenger holding a ticket can bring a child who is less than 1.2 meters tall and does not occupy a seat alone on the bus; when there are more than one child, the number of children should purchase discounted tickets for children.
also,The seat type of the child discount ticket should be the same as the ticket held by the accompanying adult, and the arrival at the station shall not be farther than the arrival of the adult ticket.
When a child who is entitled to a free ride in accordance with the above regulations occupies a seat alone, he/she shall purchase a child discount ticket.
As soon as the draft for comments came out, many netizens left comments and praised: “Support the children nowadays do grow taller”, “More and more humane”, “Support, the baby now grows fast, hope to implement it as soon as possible. “.
According to reports, the deadline for this feedback is November 27, 2021.
