Relieve pressure at peak hours and enhance the transportation capacity in urban areas
Transportation Capacity Enhancement on Shanghai Metro Line 3, Line 4, Line 11 and Line 16 since August 28

(Correspondent: Xu Huili; photo: Zuo Rongliang) To further relieve the pressure of large passenger flow at peaks on working days, satisfy the commuting requirements of passengers and enhance the operation capacity at peak hours on working days, Shanghai Metro will enhance its transportation capacity on Line 3, Line 4, Line 11 and Line 16 since August 28 (Friday). This approach will relieve the pressure of large passenger flow in urban areas to a certain extent.

Line 3 and Line 4 will adjust the interval of trains at morning and evening peak hours on working days since August 28

Since August 28, Shanghai Metro will adjust the interval of trains on Line 3 and Line 4 at morning peak hour on working days. At the morning peak hour on Line 3, the minimum interval of some trains traveling from South Changjiang Road to Shanghai South Railway Station will be adjusted to 2.5 minutes. At the morning peak hour on Metro 4, the minimum interval of some trains traveling along the inner ring (clockwise) direction will be adjusted to 2.5 minutes. As the only ring line connecting all metro lines of Shanghai Metro (except Line 5 and Line 16), Line 3, Line 4 and the North Extended Segment of Line 3 has further enhanced its transportation capacity. This approach will further enhance the operation capacity of Shanghai Metro in urban areas and relieve the huge pressure from high passenger flow at peak hours.

Line 16 enhances its capacity at morning and evening peak hours on working days and adjusts the time of departure for the first train and the last train everyday since August 31.

Since August 31 (Monday), Shanghai Metro will shorten the interval of trains on Line 16 at morning and evening peak hours on working days. At the morning peak hour, the interval of trains traveling from East Huinan to Longyang Road will be adjusted to about 4 minutes. At the evening peak hour, the interval will be adjusted to about 5.5 minutes. The interval on other time segments and on weekends will remain unchanged.

Shanghai Metro will also adjust the time of departure for the first train and the last train everyday on Line 16. The time of departure of the first train in Longyang Road Station and Dishui Lake Station remains unchanged, but adjustment has been made in other stations. See the following timetable for more details. The time of departure of the first trains from Huinan, Xinchang to Longyang Road will be 6:00 a.m. 3 trains will be added in Huinan Station in addition to other first trains departing for Longyang Road. The interval will be 6 minutes.

Capacity enhancement of Line 11 at morning peak hour on working days since September 1

Since September 1 (Tuesday), Shanghai Metro will shorten the interval of trains on Line 11 at morning peak hour on working days. The average interval of trains on Nanxiang ~ Sanlin segment will be shortened to 2.5 minutes. The interval of trains on North Jiading ~ Jiading Xincheng segment, Huaqiao ~ Jiading Xincheng segment and Sanlin ~ Luoshan Road segment will be 7.5 minutes. The transportation capacity of these segments will be increasing slightly. The interval of trains on other time segments and on weekends remains unchanged.

Notes: Capacity enhancement means the further acceleration of cycling speed of trains from departure to arrival. Shanghai Metro hopes passengers to get on and get off the trains quickly. Do not rush to the passenger trains or block the doors. It is unsafe to do so and would have negative impact on the effectiveness of capacity enhancement. If the train is too crowded, do not get on it and wait for the next train. Let’s safeguard the safety and efficiency of Shanghai Metro together.
