Expo subway line has served 10m passengers

LINE 13, the only subway operating inside the World Expo site, has handled more than 10 million passengers since the event opened in May, the city's Metro operator Shanghai Shentong Metro Group said yesterday.

The operator plans to add train services to shorten interval times from six minutes to four minutes during rush hours, the operator said.

The line has three stations now in use. Two are within the Expo site - Lupu Bridge Station and Expo Avenue Station - while Madang Road Station can only be accessed by ticket holders to the event.

Expo ticket holders can take the line for free between the Pudong and Puxi sides of the Expo. The daily volume on the line is about 130,000, Metro officials said.

Line 13 will be a complete line after the Expo. The completed line will operate from suburban Jiading District to downtown Nanjing Road W. Station, where it connects to Line 2.

Meanwhile, the operator said it has teamed up with Metro police to crack down on those who jump over ticket turnstiles to avoid paying subway fares. Offenders will be fined 50 yuan(US$7.36), Shanghai Shentong said.
