Metro Line 6 gets more trains, speeds commutes

SHANGHAI'S Metro operator will increase the capacity of crowded Metro Line 6 starting tomorrow, but it fears the method can hardly meet increasing demanding.

Three more subway trains will be put into use along the line to shorten the intervals during rush hours, Metro officials said yesterday.

The intervals at key subway sections, from Jufeng Road to Gaoqing Road stations, along the line are expected to be cut to 2 minutes and 50 seconds, from the current 3 minutes during the morning rush. During the afternoon rush, the intervals will be set at 3 minutes and 40 seconds, down from 4 minutes.

The section sees the most congestion of the line, said Metro operator, Shanghai Shentong Metro Group. The line upped its capacity in September, which partly eased the pressure but attracted more passengers. The line handles 300,000 passengers a day.
