Bus route 71, which shuttles between the Bund and the Shenkun Road transport hub near Hongqiao International Airport, is now the busiest bus line in the city and it’s about to get busier.
According to Shanghai Jiushi Bus Group, more than 50,000 people take the bus daily, many of them tourists. Passenger numbers are expected to swell during the China International Import Expo that will be held between November 5 and 10.
The bus company plans to set up a special branch line on route 71 to take visitors the National Exhibition and Convention Center, where the exhibition will be held. The branch line will drop and pick up passengers in the center’s parking lot.
