Most of my China and HK shots are like that - don't know how the rest of you get such clear shots.

Meh. I never liked buses much. Half the time they get stuck in traffic so badly, I make better time on foot. Or maybe that's just Shanghai's problem.

From my experience, it's better to not have anything inside the buses. They are mostly obnoxious flashy advertisements that prevent you from napping..

Is there some reason why it's elevated so high? Seems like it's twice as high as it needs to be in the last two pictures.

Seems similar to Shanghai's line 1, it also connects the 2 stations.

Long term plans have been updated. Around 450 kilometres and 10 lines will be built now.

You can see the expected lenght of each line on the map:

Another Chinese city bidding for the '400km+ of subways club'. Around 15 Chinese cities are planning metro systems above that span now.

Total lenght 47.97 kilometres, 41.4 underground, and the rest above ground or elevated.

About the third question, maybe someone from Hangzhou could help.

Based on the maps posted previously, it appears the currently UC part of line 1 will connect to both the main railway station and the east railway station. The long term plan also shows a connection to the airport on a further extension of line 1 as well as on lines 6 and 7.
