Recently, an online function showing the passenger flows of Beijing subway has been opened to the public on navigation service provider AutoNavi.
The subway passenger flow data of the app is provided by the Beijing Municipal Commission of Transport. Passengers can open the updated app of the AutoNavi and check whether the subway is fully loaded at any station. The passenger flow degree is distinguished in the colors of red, yellow and green.
To control the spread of the novel coronavirus, Beijing subway and buses operators increased the frequency of buses and subway trains. Also, during rush hours, the subway lines will limit the passenger numbers and enhanced disinfection work, as the extended Chinese New Year holiday ended and more employees returned to work from various regions.
