Traffic info in English
There are two TV programs on International Channel Shanghai (ICS) to provide traffic information to foreigners during the six-month Expo. From Monday to Friday, Expo Live will be aired at noon and Expo360 will be broadcast at 8 pm. During the two programs, traffic police will provide real-time traffic information in English.
Eight Shanghai subway lines - 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7, 8 and 9 - will conduct test runs for the Expo until April 28. All 11 lines will run from April 29, including extended operating times and adjusted intervals between trains.
For the Expo opening ceremony, Shanghai Metro will add extra trains on the new lines based on traffic volume. Changes will be posted on bulletin boards at Metro stations and on the Shanghai Metro website.
Toilets at site
About 11,000 public toilets in and around the 5.28-sq-km Expo site have been upgraded for the 400,000 visitors expected daily. Based on the 2005 Aichi Expo in Japan and studies of railway stations, airports and other public places, there should be at least 4,069 toilets for the 400,000 visitors, with 2.5 times as many women's toilets as men's.
