Departure Intervals

During the upcoming International Labor Day holiday (May 1 to 5), SRT Line 1 trains will run at a minimum interval of 3 minutes 25 seconds and the departure intervals of other trains will remain the same as the weekend schedule, i.e. 5 minutes and 20 seconds for Line 2, 5 minutes and 50 seconds for Line 3, 6 minutes for Line 4 (main line), and 6 minutes and 55 seconds for Line 4 (branch line). 

Rush Hours

As the weather is getting warm and balmy, Suzhou will see a big increase in holiday passenger flow and the number of visitors during the holiday is expected to hit a record high. According to previous statistics, the holiday passenger flow peak usually lasts from 1pm to 8pm every day. 

Besides, this year’s “Double Five Shopping Festival” will coincide with the International Labor Day holiday, so the passenger flow peak in major business districts and nearby SRT stations may last until 10pm or later. 

Friendly Reminder

Please cooperate with epidemic prevention and control measures and keep face masks on when you travel by SRT. For any help, you can dial SRT service hotline: 0512-69899000.
