On Dec. 28th, in the awarding ceremony of Asian Games metro volunteer groups and individuals, ten institutions of higher education were granted the honor of "Model Volunteer Groups", and ten outstanding volunteers were listed as "Inspirational Volunteers".

According to the metro company, from Nov. 1st to Dec. 19th, the punctuality rate of Guangzhou metro trains reached 99.94%. 4.2 million passengers were transported on a daily basis. A total of 207 million passengers were transported by the metro system during the Asian Games and Para Games, representing a national record. 8.44 million Asian-Games related persons passed through the "Asian Games Green Passage". Not a single accident occurred during the Games.

During the Games, 15,000 people served as metro volunteers. They came from Party and government institutions, profit and non-profit organizations, institutions of higher education, service suppliers and engineering companies. Each day, 5,000 metro volunteers were on duty, serving some four million passengers. As part of the Asian Games volunteer family, the metro volunteers worked closely with other 590,000 city volunteers to guarantee the success of the 2010 Guangzhou Asian Games.
