New Metro Line 1 System Makes Finding a Seat Easier
The Changsha Metro Line 1 has recently added passenger information displays in its carriages since it began to introduce different temperatures in different carriages.
“A TV screen in the carriages shows where passengers are and indicates about how many passengers are in each of the six carriages. This helps passengers find a seat,” said passenger Zhang.
The function has been tested in one train on Metro Line 1 and one on Metro Line 4 since June 15 of this year according to a Changsha Metro Operation staffer.
"After the function passed testing, the number of passengers will appear on a screen, which also tells the station being arrived at. This will help station staff adjust their work according to how crowded carriages are. Passengers can choose carriages for a more comfortable ride,” said staff.
