The 7th Beijing Agriculture Carnival will be held at Strawberry Expo Park in Changping District of Beijing from March 16 to May 12, 2019.
Considering the 58-day carnival is expected to see a large passenger flow during holidays, Beijing Public Transport Group will open an exclusive bus line to facilitate citizens’ travel.
The carnival bus line will have four electric double-decker buses run 14 km directly from the Tiantongyuan North Subway Station stop to the Xiangtun stop during the holidays. The buses depart at 9:30, 10:00, 10:30, 11:00 in the morning, and the ticket fare is five yuan (0.74 U.S. dollars) in cash and three yuan for using yikatong, with all free travel certificates invalid.
In addition, the bus line 537 via the Strawberry Expo Park will add two more buses to run from the Tiantongyuan North Subway Station stop in case of a large passenger flow during holidays. Publicity platforms and exhibition boards will be set up for introducing the carnival bus line and volunteers will guide passengers to take bus on the site.
