Full coverage: 2017 Spring Festival

As the Spring Festival has drawn to a close, passengers across the country are travelling and getting back to work. Sunday has seen a notable increase in the return travel rush.

The national estimate up until Sunday shows more than 2 billion trains trips were made since this year's travel rush kicked off on January 13th, an increase of nearly 23 million trips from a year earlier.

Around 890 temporary passenger trains were added on Sunday to ease the pressure, 511 of which are long-distance trains. The Guangzhou South Railway Station was the most used transportation hub during the migration, followed by Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station and Beijing West Railway Station. All of them are seated in major cities with significant populations of migrant workers.
