Many of the region's passengers are migrant workers from Hefei and Fu-yang of East China's Anhui Province, which are cities with large labor output.

Zhejiang Province, South China's Guangdong Province, Shanghai and Beijing were all ranked as "adequate" in supply while train tickets to Hefei were reportedly harder to obtain.
