The best i've seen people behave was in Hong Kong. People actually lined up at the appropriate spots where the entrances would be, and they respected the "first come, first serve" mantra.

They even lined up at bus stops

And they hate mainlanders that don't follow the proper etiquette.

Passengers in Shanghai do actually line up in front of PSDs when waiting for trains, however you always see 1 or 2 people jumping the queue as the train approaches, triggering everyone to think 'oh what the hell' and crowd around the door.

I have seen this in Japan, where there are lines painted for you to wait in. Occasionally in Korea, they line up, but then still try and get on before everyone has got off

Chengdu metro

The first subway in west China was launched in Chengdu, capital of Southwest China's Sichuan province.

Chengdu Subway Line One runs between northern and southern Chengdu over a distance of 18.5 km with 17 stations.

The subway's construction began in 2005 with an investment of about 8 billion yuan ($1.19 billion).

The subway operates from 7 am to 9 pm with an interval of 10 minutes between trains. It is designed to carry 180,000 to 200,000 passengers per day.

Chengdu will accelerate its subway construction in the next few years. It plans to have a 298 km subway system, carrying more than three million passengers per day by 2020.

There's already a thread on Chengdu's metro: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1039147
BTW, what's the Chongqing monorail?

I think some of the less known Chinese cities thread are outdated and sort of abandoned and people don't bother looking for them it should merger into a China Urban Transport Compilation thread.

Did the Hong Kong MTR have anything to do with this?

Please don't bring Uranium, pet monkeys or drums of oil onto our metro. Many thanks.

On a serious note though, the frequencies for the trains seem a little low and the operating hours are downright shocking. 7am until 9pm?!

No need to worry once the metro has more expansion the frequencies and operating hours will increase.

你请讲英语。你讲英语吗?International forum, English is spoken.

I'm afraid my limited Chinese can't translate what you wrote. The only thing I understand in that is the time and now.

So I take it the trains run until 11:30 now?

Ah, yes. I can see it on the pillar now. Sorry - I only read your words at the beginning of the thread that said the running time is from 7am until 9pm.
