The 110th Session of the Canton Fair opens on October 15 at Pazhou Convention and Exhibition Complex. The Transportation Bureau will ensure the transport for the fair by adding more buses, deploying more taxis, and re-adjusting the frequency of subway train travel. The Transportation Department has reminded merchants and citizens that the number of taxis for this year's Canton Fair has purposefully been restricted, and there is limited parking at the venue. Hence members of the public visiting the fair are strongly advised to use the public transport facilities such as bus, subway, and hotel shuttle buses instead of taxis or driving a car to the Canton Fair. Should they have any enquires, or difficulties they are most welcome to call the 96900 helpline.
