Residents Asked to Adjust Travel Times to Avoid Peak Hours at CheckpointsThe city checkpoint authorities are reminding residents to adjust their travel times when traveling in or out of Shenzhen and avoid peak travel hours during the upcoming Mid-Autumn Festival. Officials are expecting that the number of border crossings will peak on Friday or an increase of 7.9 percent compared to the same period last year.

And to have a proper flow and to improve the efficiency, the Shenzhen General Station of Exit and Entry Frontier Inspection has released detailed plans and strengthen its contact with their Hong Kong counterpart. The Hong Kong transportation department is planning to set aside 280 cross border buses that will be distributed to various checkpoints to accommodate travelers.

Authorities say that Huanggang, Futian, Luohu, and Shenzhen Bay will be that most crowded of the checkpoints for the incoming holidays as outbound peak will occur from 9 am to 11:30 am and inbound peak is from 4 to 7 pm at all this checkpoints. Apart from adjusting their travel times, residents are also advised to choose a lesser crowded checkpoints to travel in and out of the city.

To further save time at checkpoints residents holding electronic Hong Kong and Macau travel permits can use the e-channels to cross borders. Chinese citizens holding ordinary electronic passports can only use the e-channels when entering Shenzhen.
