Six more stations were added to the list of stops that will restrict passenger inflow during peak hours on the Beijing Subway officials announced over the weekend.
That makes 61 stations in town that now are subject to lines to get into subway during peak hours, and another reason to
quit your job and move to Bali ask your boss for flextime hours.
New stations on the inflow restriction list include Guomao and Jintaixizhao on Line 10 (morning and evening); Sanyuanqiao on Line 10 (evening only); Yonganli on Line 1 (evening only); Gucheng on Line 1 (morning only); and Fengtai Science Park on Line 9 (evening only).
The dual forces of increased concern about crowd control as a result of the Shanghai New Year's Eve stampede and the opening of several new lines December 28 led officials to make the decision. That merely means that human stampedes will happen outside the stations instead of inside them, but that's a matter for another day.
In the meantime, here's a handy chart of the stations where you may need to stand in line outside the station in order to get in:
