Public transport integration solves travel difficulties for villagers.
"Nowadays we can get on the bus near our residence and shopping in the urban city is too convenient," happily said a villager named Li Chunxia who lives in the town of Lu Bu Tuo Village, Yang Jiabo Town, to the reporter. Luo Bu Tuo Village belongs to the remote rural area, and in the past, if villagers want to go to the urban city, traveling is very difficult. After the bus No.452 is opened, the bus can directly reach the village so the villagers will be able to get on the bus near their own homes. Moreover, the bus is scheduled to start regularly.
Dagang and Hangu lie in the north and south of Binhai New Area so many relatively remote villages and towns need regular bus lines. Since the 18th CPC Congress, Binhai New Area Public Transport Group has opened 10 village bus lines say Bus No.547, No.548, No.549, No.945, No.946, No.924, No.925, No.926, No.927 and No.928, which are all equipped with GPS vehicle terminal equipment, and passengers can easily check the real-time running positions through mobilesoftware, to really solve travel difficulties for villagers in remote villages.
Follow-up pace of supporting services for enterprises
"The buses, stopping at one’s door with ten-minute interval and 2-yuanfare, cover the whole oil area," said Ms. Zhang who lives in the Haibin Street excitedly about the traffic convenience to the reporter. It is learned that though Dagang Oilfield has tens of thousands of oil workers, there was no public transport many years ago. In order to solve the commuting problem of oil field workers and to eliminate the worries of enterprises, since December 2012, Binhai Public Transport Group has opened bus lines to Dagang Oil Field, and currently Dagang Oil Field has basically formed a full coverage of bus lines.
"In the past if we want to go to Tanggu, there was no direct bus lines. Now one just sits on the Bus No. 524 and can reach there directly." When sorting out the bus lines, a resident named Mrs. Zhang recalled a lot, saying "a few years ago, the Bus No. 540 is opened, to solve the travel problem for oil workers; bus No. 943 was opened last year to facilitate the underground workers; this year the bus No.949 was opened to radiate to the entire oil field.
