Do you think pay­ing ex­tra to get a train ticket is fair? (by Oc­to­ber 11) As the sup­ply of high-speed train tick­ets fell far short of de­mand dur­ing the seven-day Na­tional Day hol­i­days, many third-party ticket book­ing plat­forms charged for their ser­vice – al­low­ing users to pay ex­tra to be pri­or­i­tized for a ticket. Lawyers said the prac­tice fell into a gray area and crit­i­cized it for dis­turb­ing the ticket mar­ket. Some pas­sen­gers ar­gued that it is con­ve­nient for those who have no time to line up at the rail­way sta­tion or stick to the com­puter and keep click­ing the “buy” but­ton.
