During the World Expo from May 1 to Oct. 31, security inspectors will be stationed on all buses for the 42 Expo routes and at thousands of bus stops in a bid to ensure a safe Expo, according to local police.

Inspectors will be sent aboard every bus on all the Expo routes for security checks, Cheng Jiulong, deputy director and spokesman of the Shanghai municipal public security bureau, was quoted as saying by Tuesday's China Daily.

Security guards will also be deployed at the 2,188 bus stops and 60 junction stations in the city to check luggage and bags, Cheng said.

Escape windows will be installed on buses on Expo routes and in key areas in case any accidents take place.

Each bus operating on the inner-ring roads will be equipped with closed-circuit video to monitor any irregularities.

Shanghai has the world's most extensive bus system with nearly 1,000 bus lines. The buses have operated well in the past few years, with just a few accidents, terrorist attacks or passenger-induced accidents have been reported.
