Drunks disrupt Metro services

With the Spring Festival just weeks away, Shanghai Metro is dealing with a high number of drunk commuters, some even affecting services.

A drunk commuter fell on the tracks at Jinping Road Station on Line 5 on Monday evening. He was helped out by security staff but not before subway services came to a halt briefly.

Surveillance camera images showed a man walking uneasily along the platform about 8:30pm on Monday. He toppled over on to the tracks while trying to reach the safety door. Fortunately there were no trains entering the station, but the Metro staff activated the emergency button on the platform and delayed incoming trains.

There were at least six drunk passenger incidents over the last two weeks. In other cases, a drunk fell from an escalator, on the steps at the entrance, or climbed over safety doors.

Passengers have also vomited in the carriages, said officials.
