Urban transportation, shops and service providers to resume operation

According to the national and provincial directives, urban and inter-city transportation services will be restored gradually from 18th February.

Except for the city of Wenzhou, which has been affected most heavily by the outbreak, all municipalities in Zhejiang must resume the operation of public transportation via a phased approach. Regarding the urban area of Ningbo, more than half of all bus routes should resume service.

The suspension of taxi and ride hailing services will also be lifted.

To further accommodate people’s daily needs, shops and service providers will be allowed to resume their businesses while supporting the city-wide disease control and prevention measures. These include restaurants, cafés, hotels, barber shops, convenience stores and other types of businesses that provide life necessities.

Meanwhile, restaurants and cafes will only accept take-away or delivery orders. Courier and delivery services will be conducted in a non-contact manner.
