Fare-Free China: "华声在线3月23日讯 (记者 黄煌): "环保车循环运营,便利游客换乘

换乘管理,具体如何实施?据介绍,韶山风景区已成立并运行旅游环保车队,来韶旅游车辆统一停放在韶山风景名胜区游客中心停车场,游客换乘旅游环保车进入景区游览。旅游环保车在景区内实行循环运营,在主要景点设置停靠站点,并根据实际需要设置招呼站。“十一”、“春节”等旅游高峰期,旅游环保车将游客从主、次入口送至景区核心区域入口,游客在核心区域内步行参观。

由于韶山风景区是开放式景区,换乘管理后,景区内居民的出行又将如何协调?刘科表示,旅游环保车之外,韶山还将开通景区环保通勤车,为本地居民和韶山学校学生提供免费公共交通服务。环保通勤车停靠点根据居民居住出行情况设置,与景区外公交车实现无缝对接,韶山市居民凭本人身份证、工作证、学生证等有效证件一证一人免费乘坐。""
