More trains on Line 8

CITY traffic authorities said yesterday that six more subway trains will be added to Metro Line 8 to raise its capacity by the end of this year.

The operator had already put into use three new trains along Line 8 by the end of last month. However, the operator fears that "the rise in capacity can hardly meet the increasing passenger volume."

Also, interval times between trains will be shortened with the introduction of the new trains during rush hours, the operator said.

Passenger restriction measures will continue at some crowded Metro stations, however.
