Thank you for starting a thread dedicated to the Guangzhou Metro.

Does anyone have a link that shows the expansion plans?

"Higher Education Mega Center" is a horrible translation. The Chinese just says "University City."

MTR does consultancy work for a lot of mainland metro projects, so we see some similarities right in our backyard, such as the Shenzhen and Guangzhou systems.

Very good seems brand new, is it very used? Because the photos were taken at a not very busy hour/period.

It is heavily used. I avoid taking photos when there are a lot of people since there's more chances that security people that work there will see any photographers. Most of the time, they will always tell you to stop taking any pictures of the metro system, which is kinda stupid.

Agree. The more stupid, coz i didnt see there any signs telling yu it's forbidden to take pictures. I took a lot, and was never told to stop (probably because of the crowd they didnt spot me out
Guangzhou metro grows so fast and it's very nice. The only complain would be the fact, that the stations look all pretty much the same.

Exactly. there were no signs indicating photography is prohibited.

The stations on the Line 4 (elevated portion) are very different from the underground ones.

Let's hope Line 5 will be much better! This has been by-far the longest construction... they had to extend the the platform capacity from 4 subway cars to 6!

*Update* - For line 6, they are considering to increase the platform length capacity from 4 to 6 cars as well. Line 6 serves many important districts and locations, and I had no idea why they would plan to have 4 car-sets run in that line in the first place, Capacity would be very limited.
