Revellers' helped by late Metro service

NEW Year's Eve revellers and late-night shoppers were given a travel boost yesterday when the city Metro operator announced that two major subways will run later on Friday night.

Operations on Metro Line 1 and 2 will continue until between 12:30am and 1pm on New Year's Day. Normally, services end before 11pm.

Line 1 will see later trains operate between Xinzhuang and Tonghe Xincun stations, while on Line 2 between Songhong Road and Longyang Road stations will remain open.

Late night trains will run every 15 minutes, said the operator, Shanghai Shentong Metro Group. But officials reminded passengers that the city's other nine lines will be closed by late evening.

The Metro system will also use reserve trains to handle the huge number of passengers expected during the three-day holiday starting from January 1.

Meanwhile, the northern extension of Line 7 began operation yesterday, allowing passengers from Shanghai's northern suburbs to travel to downtown within an hour.

And at Yishan Road station, passengers can enjoy a smoother, and cheaper, journey. They can transit between Line 3 and 4 without being charged again after a passageway opened yesterday.
