The Yangtze River Delta expects an estimated 25.8 million railway passengers during the coming October National Day holidays, with 2.35 million passengers being dispatched every day, according to Shanghai Railway Bureau.

Compared with last year's National Day holidays (called "Golden Week"), 1.97 million more passengers will take trains this year. To meet demand, the railway departments plan to issue 67 additional passenger trains.

As Mid-Autumn Festival also falls during Golden Week, this year's vacation will be extended by one day. Golden Week transportation will last from September 28 to October 8.

To better organize passengers during this busy time, Shanghai Railway Bureau has completed a survey and forecast on passenger flow in advance to optimize and adjust capacity according to demands of the passengers.
