Beijing subways 24 hours

The Xinhua news agency reported that Beijing's subway system will "try" to run around-the-clock on the opening and closing days of the Olympic Games in an attempt to reduce traffic on those days - August 8 and 24.

The new Subway Line 10 is expected to be extremely busy and will carry passengers to the National Stadium where 100,000 spectators are expected for the opening and closing ceremonies.

Subway stations will have "green channels" for stadium ticket holders, Olympics staff and volunteers, who are exempt from the 2 yuan fare.
