As the Spring Festival approaches, migrant workers in construction sites in Hangzhou are eager to return home after a year of hard work. With all the luggage, how do they go all the way from construction sites to the train station?

On January 25, the No.5 Branch of Hangzhou Public Transportation Group coordinated with the project parties to serve workers by launching special bus lines directly from the construction sites to the train station. The ticket price is the same as regular buses—2 yuan.

At 9: 00 a.m. on February 3, a bus with the sign of "Happy Home-returning Special Line" stopped at construction site  entrance. Volunteers of the bus walked into the workers' dormitories and helped them carry their luggage. Half an hour later, the special line arrived at the West Square of Hangzhoudong Railway Station, where volunteers immediately came to give a hand: "Let me help you with your luggage!"

"These special lines are so convenient. We don't even need to walk out from the construction site to take the bus, and everyone has a seat. The bus just takes us to the train station directly! We are so grateful for the warm-hearted service of Hangzhou Public Transportation Group!" Mr. Chen, before entering the station, kept expressing his gratitude and excitedly said farewell to the volunteers.
