Planned to debut later this year, the trial may reportedly allow passengers to directly check in by swiping their ID cards or mobile phones, without needing a paper ticket.

People can now buy high-speed trains tickets online, but they still have to pick up a paper ticket for station check-in.

The "paperless ticket move" is expected to see a nationwide promotion next year.
