Learn Party’s history on a bus

Shanghai’s Jiushi Bus Group unveiled the first red-themed bus yesterday to celebrate the founding of the Communist Party of China. The Party was launched in Shanghai in 1921 on July 1.

With the support of the city’s transportation commission, a bus on Line 71 was decorated red to raise awareness of the history of the CPC, the People’s Republic of China, reform and opening-up and the development of socialism.

Passengers can also learn about historical sites from the bus conductor, who will provide guide services along the route. The red-themed activity will last for a month.

Line 71 is among the busiest bus lines in Shanghai, with daily passenger numbers averaging 52,000 last year.

It shuttles between the Bund and the Shenkun Road transport hub near Hongqiao International Airport, passing through many tourist hotspots, including the site of the First National Congress of the CPC and the former residence of Soong Ching Ling (1893-1981), China’s former vice president.
