I was in Hangzhou last week and passed by the construction site of the metro in the business district.











Currently, Hangzhou's transit system is limited to buses and trolleybuses such as these:

Nice update! I hope they can build metros to cover the West lake. It's not convenient at all getting bus and taxi when walking around the west lake of Hangzhou.

Unbelievable that Hangzhou, being a city with more than 6 million inhabitants, didn't have any subway until recently. Just buses and trolleybuses.

Well, the large cities in the People's Republic of China are fast-growing, every one of them will end up with a rail transit system in the future.

Indeed, there will be a couple of stations very close to West Lake according to the maps. I tried to take a cab from Hangzhou station to West Lake, and the cabbie told me it would take 60 RMB, a ridiculous sum for what is at most a 2km drive. Presumably he thought he could get away with it because I'm European-looking, but I knew better and walked instead. It's not too far of a walk down "Westlake Avenue" and there are a plethora of underpasses that separate pedestrians from the suicidal ritual of crossing the street. While I don't speak or understand any Chinese, I found the signage everywhere in central Hangzhou to be very easy to understand.

Many of the pedestrian underpasses in Hangzhou are bright and attractive; I hope some of them can be incorporated into the new subway.

Gosh the cabbie tried to rip you off. City to airport is only RMB 100!

well with GPS and maps in more and more phones this rip-off is gonna fade out soon I hope. You wouldn know where to go and how far it actually is.

Best way to get around Xihu is either by walking or by bike that could be rented right there near the lake.

Your information is really outdated. According to what I have read, Hangzhou metro will open in October 2012.

Disagree! I was in Hangzhou in 2006 and I saw only outdated trolleybuses. Most of the buses were really modern in some way more modern than in Europe.

sorry for the bluriness; I was working with low-tech equipment.

There are beautiful cars and beautiful trolleybuses in China, despite the message this photo seems to send.

Is Hangzhou building new trolleybus lines?
