The big news today is the crash of two metro carts at Shanghai Railway Station of Metro Line #1. The accident around 7:00 AM stopped that segment of Metro Line #1. Massive people were impacted. My observation:
- one of my colleague got to work at 11:40 – after trying very hard to find a way to get here.
- The metro has problem and all the ground transportation becomes a mess.
- There is no way for buses and taxi to take the volume of metro.
- Shanghai is vulnerable in its transportation system, like many other big cities. If anything happens with one metro line, that will has city wide huge influence.
