New turnstiles with facial recognition technology in Guangzhou Railway Station shorten the process of ticket verification. Passengers can pass through the turnstiles once the scanned facial features match with the ID cards.

New ticket vending machines have also been set up in Guangzhou East Railway Station, which accept UnionPay IC card and mobile QuickPass pay. Passengers taking Guangzhou-Shenzhen route can slot their IC cards or scan the e-tickets on their mobile phones to enter and exit the station. They can also print out the invoice if necessary. The whole process can be shortened by 20 minutes.
