New record for Shanghai Metro as 8.67 million travelled in holiday peak

Shanghai Metro turnover hit a new record high in history yesterday, the last work day before the Mid-Autumn Festival, with about 8.67 million riders transported by the tube network, city subway operator announced today.

Many downtown malls offered holiday shopping discounts. And 50%-off discounts also happened to be offered at many local sightseeing spots for Shanghai Tourism Festival yesterday. The factors combined had increased Metro travel demand, the operator said.

More riders brought to the network by the newly opened second phase of Metro Line 11 also contributed to the new record, said the Metro management.

Metro authority estimated the next subway travel peak would fall on September 30 with the approaching of the National Day Holiday with traffic surpassing 8 million people again.

As city Metro network continues to expand, it's expected that the single-day Metro turnover would hit 9 million before the end of this year.
