  Migrant workers flocked from Hunan to other provinces after the Lantern Festival. The Guangzhou Railway Group Corporation added 102 passenger trains, including 21 normal-speed trains and 81 high-speed ones, from Hunan to Guangdong and east China on February 14, to meet the migrant worker return peak.

  Ticket services have been expanded. More channels such as telephone booking, increased ticket agencies, and more than 100 special pre-sale booths in railway stations, were provided across the province to make migrant workers a convenient journey.

  Changsha Railway Station also organized over 100 volunteers to serve migrant works. They especially provided consulting service on booking ticket of the trains that most migrant workers will take . Crew members at Jishou Railway Station assisted migrant workers in waiting rooms to check in and board trains. Loudi Railway Station arranged volunteers to guide migrant work passengers to walk in the station orderly.
