The Guangzhou Metro expects to receive an average daily traffic of more than 5 million passengers during the Canton Trade Fair which opened on April 15 and advises that passengers go to areas such as Tianhe, Yuexiu, and Huangpu through the transfer of Line No.4 and Line No.5 after the conclusion of sessions.

Guangzhou Metro officials say that Metro Line 8 is also expected to receive nearly 700,000 passengers every day. Metro stations including Pazhou, Xingangdong, Wanshengwei, Kecun, Changgang will have relatively concentrated instantaneous passenger flow, which may have to be controlled if necessary.

In case of a sudden increase in passengers metro officials will put additional trains into operation and organize some trains to move from Pazhou to divert traffic flow. Various stations have reserved 250,000 prefabricated tickets and manned outlets will be increased if necessary to alleviate the pressure of queuing for the tickets.

Guangzhou Metro officials also recommend passengers to go to Tianhe, Huangpu, and Yuexiu districts through the transfer of Line No.4 and Line No.5 to minimize the pressure on Metro Line 8 when the Cantor Fair sessions conclude. To reduce the shock of other lines on Line 8 after conclusion of the sessions, metro stations will broadcast transfers to other lines.
