Chongqing’s Passenger Volumes Will Exceed 50 Million Person-times during the Spring Festival

The travel rush during the Spring Festival of 2015 has started from February 4. The reporter has learned from relevant departments such as Chongqing Transportation Commission that, Chongqing is still facing a severe condition in terms of passenger transportation this year; although the number of passengers transported by water declines, the number of passengers by expressway, railway and air sustains an increase; it is anticipated that the passenger volumes in Chongqing will increase by 5% on a year-on-year basis during the Spring Festival of 2015, exceeding 50 million person-times.
During the travel rush of the Spring Festival this year, the number of passengers choosing civil aviation will amount to 3,933,000 person-times in Chongqing, up 9.7% compared with that in 2014; the maximum daily passenger throughput will reach 108,200 person-times. As for the railway transportation, there will be 5.8 million passengers, up 9% year on year; as for the road transportation, the passenger volumes will reach 44.5 million person-times, a year-on-year increase of 3%; and as for the water transportation, passenger volumes will total 900,000 person-times, a decrease of 26.6% compared with that in 2014.
According to statistical data, traffic volume of expressways during the Spring Festival in 2014 was 60% higher than that at ordinary times, since the car ownership in Chongqing was about 20% up in 2014. It can be predicted that the traffic volume of all levels of roads in Chongqing will further increase during the Spring Festival of 2015.
“It’s estimated that Chongqing will witness a great pressure in passenger transportation after the Spring Festival.” Relevant official of Chongqing Transportation Commission indicated, the students of Chongqing’s colleges and universities will return to school in early March after the winter vacation of this year. As the date for starting school closely follows the Spring Festival, the students back to school, together with the people visiting friends and relatives, the migrant workers, and the travelers, will bring high pressure to the passenger transportation after the Spring Festival, leading to another travel rush.
In order to ensure smooth and safe traffic for passengers during the Spring Festival in Chongqing, Chongqing Airport Long Distance Passenger Transfer plans to provide 24-hour services; terminals will be operated in advance; more check-in counters and security check channels will be put into service to improve operational efficiency and flight punctuality rate. We will temporarily prepare more shifts and ticket windows for passengers who are to take railway, and arrange specially assigned people and ticket salesmen to work in major stations. Chongqing plans to put 19,000 buses and 23,000 taxies into operation; we will delay the end time of urban buses and arrange overtime transportation temporarily. In doing so, a comprehensive pattern by all kinds of modes of transportation will take shape to realize mutual support and close cooperation.
