On the morning of December 28, five red special-type minibuses departed from Tianyi Station of Wuxi Metro Line 1. It is the first short-distance shuttle bus route in Wuxi that connects the subway station and residential areas. It is also a livelihood project connecting some areas in Tianyi New Town, Yanqiao Sub-district that provide travelling convenience for residents. The bus route of "Tianyi Mengmeng Bus", the special-type minibus, will benefit more than 100,000 residents.
The five special-type minibuses with an investment of more than 2 million yuan are less than 2 meters wide and can drive on narrow roads near old communities. Departing from the Tianyi Road (Fengbin Road) Station in the parking lot of Tianyi Station of Wuxi Metro Line 1, the minibuses will pass through 15 stations such as Fengbin Road, Tianyi Road, West Road of Tianyi Town, Xiqing Road, Shicheng Road and Tianyi Road, and then return along the original route. The whole journey is 5.6 kilometers long. According to the person in charge of the department of marketing service of the Fengxiang Branch of Wuxi Public Transport Group Co., Ltd., they will increase the number of buses during the rush hours of school and integrate with the subway, so as to effectively alleviate the traffic pressure.
Relevant official in charge of the transportation department of Wuxi said that the "Mengmeng Bus" launched in Yanqiao Sub-district would build a "model" of short-distance bus route in the whole city. (Photo/Wuxi Daily)
