 Expo Information: Traffic control

There will be traffic control on Lupu Bridge from 10 am on Apr 27 to midnight on Apr 28 and from midnight to 4am from April 30 to May 1. Temporary control measures, based on the amount of traffic at the time, will be taken from 4 pm to midnight on April 30. Other areas that are likely to undergo temporary traffic control include Yanan Elevated Road, Hongjing Road to Jiangxi Road, Inner Ring Elevated Road, Wanping Road to Guohuo Road, North-South Elevated Road, Beijing Road to Luban Overpass, Nanpu Bridge and Yanan East Road Tunnel.

Six taxi stops have been set up at five entrances around the Expo site: Entrance 1 on Luban Road; Entrance 3 on Bansongyuan Road; Entrance 4 on Bailianjing Road; Entrance 7 on North Changqing Road; and Entrance 8 on Houtan Square. Taxis are also available by dialing 96822.

Ticketing system

Organizers of the Expo said they will use a "universal ticket system" in the Expo Garden, so that visitors can gain access to all the pavilions and performances. The reservation service will be used to save visitors time. Visitors can only reserve one pavilion from among the China Pavilion and the five theme parks. Visitors can also have, at most, five reservations to other pavilions.

Organizers clarified the rule stating that visitors can make six reservations with one ticket does not mean that visitors can only go to six pavalions with one ticket.

One-day cards

Shanghai Metro launched one-day travel cards costing 20 yuan this month in the run-up to Expo 2010 Shanghai. The one-day tickets are valid for 24 hours after they have been swiped for the first time. This new ticket is targeted at short-term visitors to Shanghai, who are likely to make several trips a day on the Metro. Other ticket schemes will be launched in the future, such as multi-day and multiple-use travel cards.
