Ningbo resumes public transportation
Ningbo Bus Group announced on Feb 20 that all bus lines temporarily suspended due to the novel coronavirus outbreak in Ningbo will be resumed the next day.
Some adjustments will be made to bus routes, operating times, and frequency.
All bus lines will open half an hour later than usual, no earlier than 6:00 am, and will end one hour earlier than usual, between 7:30 pm and 9:00 pm.
Ten lines, including No 28, No 33, and No 301, will temporarily change routes.
Bus authorities said that they will adjust bus capacity and frequency in accordance with risk levels and traffic conditions.
Passengers are urged to wear masks and encouraged to pay using Alipay or WeChat, and only those holding a green QR code or a paper health certificate indicating they have little chance of having been infected will be allowed to take public transport.
Buses will be disinfected and aired out before operating.
In addition, all inter-city and inter-county passenger lines, except those to Wenzhou, the province's hardest-hit city amid the epidemic, will resume operations on Feb 21 as well.
The city's subway lines are set to partly reopen that same day, according to Ningbo Rail Transit Group. However, passengers are being asked to complete real-name registration before boarding trains.
