On the morning of September 5, the first group of tourists got on the through passenger car from Passenger Transport Center of Xiaogan Passenger Transport Group to many scenic spots in the city through the dedicated traffic lines after early booking or buying tickets on site, code scanning for registration and body temperature detection, which marks the official opening of the through passenger car to scenic spots in the city.
The reporter witnessed that the first tour bus to Shibatan, a scenic spot in Dawu, was full of passengers including those who came here as a whole family or those who specially caught the early bus to join the first group of tourists at 7:20 on July 5. Ms. Zheng, a citizen, said with satisfaction, “the through passenger car to scenic spots is a considerate initiative to benefit the people. It will be more convenient and fast to go to the scenic spots without changing buses in the future”.
According to introduction, there are three dedicated traffic lines to Shuangfeng Mountain, Baizhao Mountain and Shibatan respectively, and the final destination is the parking lot of each scenic spot. The system of “fixed time (weekends and national statutory holidays), fixed points and fixed routes” is applicable to the through passenger car to scenic spots for day trip which aims to provide tourists with convenient and direct travel transportation services.
In order to ensure the safety of passengers, Anji Tourism Company of Xiaogan Passenger Transport Group planned the route in advance, carried out safety evaluation, specially purchased new cars, comprehensively inspected the safety of cars and completeness of facilities to exclude hidden risks, and disinfected the whole car. They also chose experienced drivers and carried out safety and service training for appliance crew. In addition, they assigned special personnel to track and supervise car operation in real time to ensure safe operation and high-quality services and also the smooth opening of the dedicated traffic lines for “the last kilometer” from Xiaogan City to scenic spots.
Statistics show that on September 5 and 6, nearly 100 passengers took the three dedicated traffic lines.
