Shan Xinghua, director of technology with 12306 China Railway, paperless train travel currently being trialed in Hainan is going to be expanded across the country.

Instead of being given a paper slip, passengers will be granted access to the trains by simply showing their ID cards or scanning the 12306 QR code on a smartphone.

The report does not clarify when the paper tickets will be eliminated.

In fact, some stations have implemented.
Some passengers have used them.

The payment process will be simplified as ‘one-button-pressing’ through new technology in the near future! No surprise when you see so many people including seniors can use We-chat-paying for vegetables in the market!
Childish pure  mindset can simplify your life which let you live in a light way! Without man-made troubles you will work in high efficiency!

Cashless is good only if cellphones work promptly; it is frustrating waiting at the check-out counter for the bloke in front to get his phone to work, often with the cahier trying to help, holding up the already long queue.  I always do the guy behind me a huge favor by paying cash in right amount!
