Shanghai Urban Construction and Communication Commission Director Huang Rong said it wouldn’t be necessary to stagger working hours during the up coming Expo since residents in the area travel in the opposite direction to those who would be going to the Expo.
Meanwhile, direct buses to the Expo site will be no more expensive than other buses. Most of the city’s buses charge 29 cents per person.
Transport hubs, including the city’s two airports, two railway stations and the international circuit, will set up 16 direct bus routes to the Expo site. These routes are expected to transport 15% of visitors. And there will be free shuttle buses operating from subway stations to the Expo entrances.
Shanghai Daily reports there will also be five major park-and-ride lots in Jiading, Minhang and Songjiang districts. They will provide more than 10,000 free spaces for private vehicles.
