Guide Dogs to Be Allowed Onboard by China Railway
Since May 1, 2015, guide dogs will be allowed on China trains. This will bring great convenience for passengers with visual problems. For other passengers, please rest assured that guide dogs are professionally trained and well disciplined, and will not attack you.

To travel by rail with a guide dog, the passenger is advised to tell the situation to get a suitable seat or berth when purchasing the ticket. Before departure, please contact China Railway Corporation twelve hours prior to the scheduled departure time or upon arrival at the station. During the boarding process, the passenger should present his/her ID certificate used for booking the ticket, certificate of disability, as well as the guide dog's work permit, and animal health immunization certificate. Also, the dog should wear a guide saddle and be chained. During the trip, the passenger should be responsible and take care of the dog.
