Data shows China logged 230 million passenger trips on Sunday, the second day of the Chinese New Year holiday.
Over 200 million were road trips. About 9 million trips were made via railway.
Located at the crossroads of Hunan, Hubei, and Jiangxi provinces, Yueyang Dong Railway Station serves as a major transit hub.
Travelers here are setting out on sightseeing trips after harsh snowfall and freezing rain have just ended.
Deputy Director Chen Zipei says the crowds pose a test for the station’s capacity.
She says they are collaborating with local authorities to ensure smooth transportation connections for travelers.
Officials estimate a record 9 billion trips during this year's Spring Festival travel rush, also known as "chunyun".
