Metro App Offers Real-Time Advice

METRO operator Shanghai Shentong yesterday launched a free cellphone app, allowing travelers to access Metro information, including maps, stations, transit routes and the location of toilets on the city's 11 Metro lines.

The app is also intended to provide real-time advice on which lines are crowded and suggest alternative routes. Neighborhoods near the Metro stations will also be shown.

Initially, the app is available only for Apple devices but will be extended to other mobile phones next year. An English version is also in the pipeline.

Passengers can e-mail the operator at to give their views on the software.
