Transport returning to normal

Transportation services in the city are gradually returning to normal as the novel coronavirus epidemic situation improves in China, the Shanghai Transport Bureau said on Saturday.

Buses traveling to other cities, except those to Wuhan City in Hubei Province, are encouraged to resume full operations, said Yang Xiaoxi, deputy director of the Shanghai Transport Commission.

As of Friday, 150 bus companies and 21 bus centers in the city had reopened, including Hongqiao West Station, Meilan Lake Station and Pudong East Station.

Taxi services including car-hailing and car rentals have fully resumed, except those heading to Wuhan, Yang said.

Ferry services, including those to the Chongming, Changxing and Hengsha islands, have remained normal operation during the epidemic.

Metro line 2, 5 and 7 are expected to run on normal schedules from 9:30pm to 10:30pm by the end of April, Shao Weizhong, vice president of Shanghai Metro said on Saturday.

Meanwhile, normal schedules will return on Metro Line 16 from Wednesday after construction work is completed, Shao said.
