For one thing, the railway stations in Hangzhou provide scientific schedule for the railway transport, roll out different timetables on a daily basis and plan to run extra trains to Yiwu, Jinhua, Ningbo, Wenzhou, Taizhou and Huangshan by coupling EMUs and arranging more passenger trains.

For another, Hangzhoudong Railway Station introduces two intelligent robots with smart pandemic response and disinfection functions to ensure safe and healthy transport of passengers through technology-based precise pandemic control and services. The robots provide smart and streamlined disinfection services and can automatically shun the pedestrians and obstacles while walking to and fro in the station sanitizing, which greatly saves manual cost and enhances disinfection efficiency. 

In addition, with speech and screen display features, the robots can provide guidance and information for the passengers and announce requirements on pandemic control for the station.
