Bureau vows 15-minute bus response after Metro breakdowns

THE first replacement transit bus will come no later than 15 minutes following any Metro breakdown in the future to help reduce the impact on commuters, Shanghai Transport Bureau said today.

Traffic breakdowns on local Metro system are increasing as the network expands and turns busier. Some Metro riders have complained about slow responses from the bus authority during rush hours when trains are delayed, and often the replacement transit buses arrive in insufficient numbers.

To improve the problem, the bus watchdog said it's planning to add more buses to respond to Metro breakdowns and improve the emergency response collaboration with the Metro authority.

The bus authority also said 150 hybrid buses would soon be added into service on local streets, including nearly half of downtown areas, to help make bus traffic more environmental friendly and cut down exhaust fumes.
