Ten new sightseeing buses which have just gone into operation pass around 15 famous tourist sights in the city and provide passengers with an audio guide service in eight different languages.
The 10 buses, painted red, will ply two different routes. The No.1 route, which will have eight of the vehicles, is mostly on the Puxi side of the Huangpu River, while the No.2 route, with two buses, focuses mainly on Pudong New Area.
China.org.cn reports that each route starts at the Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Center at People’s Square, and runs every 15 minutes. Tickets cost RMB30 (US$4.48) and passengers get a free Shanghai map and earphones through which they can listen to the audio guide, which describes attractions as the bus passes them. The eight languages are Chinese, English, Japanese, French, Spanish, German, Russian and Korean.
