Improved public transport for 2010 World Expo

sourceļ¼šPeople”Æs Daily Online authorļ¼šGareth Powell timeļ¼š2007-08-27  


2010 World Expo will leave Shanghai endowed with a better, faster, less traffic jam prone transport system. According to a plan released by the Shanghai municipal government RMB110 billion ($14.47 billion) will be invested in the next three years to expand and upgrade the public transport system.

This will include building rail lines and bus transfer hubs, according to an action plan issued to prioritize public transit in the city.

According to the plan, Shanghai will have more than 400 kilometers of rails in operation by 2010, accounting for 30% of the total public transport capacity.

The city will put more buses on the road by establishing more bus lines that run through the city’s downtown, suburbia and townships in the peripheral area of the city.

It will also set up another 3,500 parking spaces for the buses, and install digital signboards at bus stops to tell commuters where the bus will be going and when.

Special lanes will be set up for the 2010 World Expo, which will be run from May 1 to Oct. 31, 2010 in Shanghai.
