Metro to limit passenger density

IF a Metro train is “too full,” stations will stop passengers from entering to control density in the stations and carriages, the Shanghai government said yesterday.

During rush hours on Monday, an average Metro train was “half full,” said Yang Xiaoxi, vice director of the transport commission.

The number of passengers taking Metro trains on Monday was 2.8 million, a 67.8 percent rise from Monday last week.

And the QR code which tracks taxi passengers will soon be introduced to Metro trains and buses. Passengers who scan the code and enter their mobile number in an app will be contacted to help prevent the spread of the virus.

By Monday, the code was in over 18,000 taxis and about 24,000 people had registered.
