The Ministry of Railway nows says people can buy railway tickets with their cellphones and pay through various methods. The authority also provides a series of supporting services and software that can be downloaded for free.

The Chinese government has made great progress in improving services with the help of the Internet. Since providing public services is an important responsibility of government, it is good news for consumers that authorities have embraced the arrival of the Information Age and are extending public services to cellphones.

The government can do more in this field. For example, extreme-weather forecasts, food safety and traffic information can all reach cellphones.

In the future, the government can provide various software regarding all kinds of public services concerning people’s lives. So the authority can fulfill its jobs with computers and cellphones used by ordinary people.
