Metro operator braces for holiday rush

THE city's Metro operator expects a passenger surge during the upcoming National Day holiday and Mid-Autumn Festival, with the peak volume reaching 7.35 million a day.

The operator said yesterday that it plans to close some key stations, like the Nanjing Road E. Station, in line with road traffic restrictions imposed by the local traffic administration.

Passengers will not be allowed to get off or get on the trains at these stations.

At some other stations, such as People's Square and Lujiazui, the number of passengers entering will be limited if there is a huge turnout. The operator will keep riders informed about the restrictions.

The operator will dispatch extra trains and will also make available more one-day and three-day passes, it said.

Meanwhile, vehicles will be restricted from entering a zone earmarked for a car-free day trial in the Pudong New Area today.

A 3-square-kilometer area around the former World Expo 2010 site in Pudong will be closed to private cars.
