China News Network, September 9 On the 21st, the State Council's new office held a press conference on the sustainable development of China's transportation, Wang Xiuchun, head of the Department of Transportation Services of the Ministry of Transport, said that the Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day holidays in 21 will be from September 2023 to October 9, a total of 29 days, and toll roads across the country will continue to exempt tolls for small passenger cars with less than 10 seats (including 6 seats), and the free period is from 8:7 on September 7 to 9:29 on October 0.

Wang Xiuchun introduced that taking into account factors such as holiday traffic travel rules, holiday duration, weather conditions, and Asian Games viewing, it is expected that this year's Mid-Autumn Festival and National Day holidays will have the following characteristics:

From the perspective of travel flow, the overall flow is relatively large. Combined with passenger flow monitoring and pre-sale of passenger tickets, it is expected that the flow of family visits and tourism will be superimposed at a high level during the holiday, and the demand for cross-regional long-distance travel will increase significantly. Compared with the same period in 2022, the flow of people and commercial passenger traffic in the whole society have increased significantly, and it is expected that the average daily traffic of expressways nationwide will increase by more than 2022% compared with <>, and the national highway traffic on the first day of the holiday may break through the historical high.

From the perspective of time distribution, travel time is more concentrated. The first day of the holiday is the Mid-Autumn Festival, and the concentration of outbound passenger flow will be higher than that of return passengers, and the demand for travel for tourists visiting relatives will be released intensively. The peak of road travel throughout the holiday season is expected to occur around September 9, and the road network is under pressure.

From the perspective of spatial distribution, the travel space is relatively concentrated, and during the holiday, central cities and key tourist cities will become travel hotspots. The Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, the Yangtze River Delta, the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area, and the Chengdu-Chongqing Shuangcheng Economic Circle have relatively large road network traffic. Highway travel around large and medium-sized cities is more concentrated, and some sections may be congested and slowed down.

Wang Xiuchun said that in view of these characteristics, the transportation department will strengthen the study and judgment of passenger demand, improve the transportation organization plan, strengthen the delivery of regional transportation capacity such as passenger transport hubs and key tourist attractions, strengthen the connection between urban and rural passenger lines and railway trains, civil aircraft and waterway passenger routes, and make every effort to meet the holiday travel needs of the masses. At the same time, we will release passenger flow information in a timely manner to strengthen travel guidance.

Wang Xiuchun also suggested that the majority of travelers and friends: First, plan travel, reasonably choose travel destinations, travel modes and travel times, pay attention to travel dynamic information, free passage policies, and rationally travel at peak times and avoid peaks. The second is to travel in a civilized manner, consciously abide by the order of traffic places, and follow the guidance of station and accompanying staff, orderly enter and exit the station, purchase tickets, security checks, wait for trains, and take the train, and jointly create and maintain a good travel environment. The third is to travel safely, consciously choose regular passenger vehicles to travel, actively wear the "life belt" of seat belts during the ride, and self-drivers should pay attention to the weather changes in the areas they pass through in real time.
