Guangzhou Metro predicts that during the Spring Festival travel rush, spanning 40-days, will be divided into three phases, namely the pre-holiday peak period (January 26 to February 5), the flower market and the Spring Festival period (February 6 to 17), and the post-holiday travel stage (February 18 to March 5).

As residents leave Guangzhou, the average daily passenger flow will gradually drop from about 8.23 million to about 4.63 million, and then enter the peak along with arrivals in Guangzhou, and the average daily passenger flow is expected to rebound to 8.25 million and above.

During the Spring Festival travel rush, each metro line will arrange 1 to 4 standby trains, and starting from January 26, during the peak period, Line 7 operates the long-line train "Meidi Dadao - Yanshan (美的大道站至燕山站)" and the short-line train "Jinlong - Shenjing (锦龙站至深井站)" to further accommodate the travel needs of passengers at Guangzhou South Railway Station.
