Taxi firms gear up for expo drive

Shanghai’s taxi companies have put plans in place to ensure smooth operation during this year’s China International Import Expo.

At a 15-day countdown ceremony yesterday at the National Convention and Exhibition Center, the main expo venue, 20 groups in the taxi industry and 76 taxi drivers were honored for their contribution to safeguarding the service during this year’s fight against the coronavirus.

Based on the last two years’ experience, the cab service this year will mainly focus on on-site traffic flow and the new health control measures.

The city’s road transport office said three drop-off points will be located at the east, west and north sides of the venue, with a pickup site P6 and parking lot P21, together providing a daily taxi capacity of 4,000.

A total of 2,500 new energy vehicles from the city’s five cab companies will be on standby during the expo, when drivers are required to intensify health measures, including daily disinfection of vehicles, ventilation and wearing a mask on duty.

A health package will also be placed in each taxi, providing drivers with essentials such as sterilizers and thermometers.
