Metro Line 2, 5, 7 to resume normal schedules in late April
Metro Line 2, 5 and 7 are expected to run on normal schedules by the end of April, Shao Weizhong, vice president of Shanghai Metro, told a press conference on Saturday.
Currently, last trains leave at 9pm. Usually, the time for last trains is between 9:30pm and 10:30pm.
Meanwhile, normal schedules will return on Metro Line 16 from April 1 after construction work is completed, Shao said.
The number of people taking Metro trains has been rising steadily, with an average of 6.3 million people daily on workdays this week, about half the number of the same period last year, according to Shao.
Passenger restrictions in 13 stations on workdays mean each passenger takes about five minutes to enter the station during peak hours.
Passengers taking Metro trains will still be required to wear face masks and have their temperatures taken, Shao said.
