New Policy to be Adopted for Lost Train Tickets Handling
Published: Dec. 19, 2016
Since January 2017, onboard passengers who have lost tickets before checking out at the arrival station can get a replacement for the lost ticket as long as it is not used. Information including passport, the departure date on the original ticket, and purchase station are required when handling the replacement with the conductor onboard or at the arrival station.

Currently, passengers who lose the tickets can only get the replacement 30 minutes before departure and those who lose tickets onboard cannot get the replacement. Instead, they have to buy a new ticket. With the implementation of this new policy, passengers can get a replacement before the ticket sale stops, namely five minutes before departure. Onboard passengers can also get a replacement for tickets lost on train or at the arrival station.
