Railway authorities have coordinated COVID-19 control measures and transport services to cope with the travel peak, according to the operator.

Some 127 million passenger trips are expected to be made by rail during the holiday rush that will last from Sept. 28 to Oct. 8, with Oct. 1 to see the highest passenger volume, the operator said previously.
