Railways to cope with expo rush

Shanghai’s railway authorities will operate 53 extra trains daily on peak travel days during the upcoming China International Import Expo, China Railway Shanghai Group announced yesterday.

During the event, railway arrangements in the city will be based on “daily, weekend and peak” operations and railway authorities will make adjustments according to traffic flow and demand, the group said.

On peak days during the expo, a total of 588 trains will be operated daily via the city, 53 more than the same period last year. They will have 469,000 seats in total.

Six CIIE shuttle buses, three more than last year, will be operated from the Shanghai Hongqiao Railway Station to the National Exhibition and Convention Center, the CIIE venue, in suburban Qingpu District.

The service is free, and will take six minutes in light traffic, the group said.

Multilingual training for railway staff has been conducted and the number of multilingual translation devices on Beijing-Shanghai high-speed trains has been increased to better serve foreign guests, the group said.

Strict epidemic prevention measures are taken at railway stations, with the number of temperature-check passages increased and all passengers are required to wear masks throughout their trips.
