I believe those Metropolis cars made by CSR Puzhen have both CSR and Alstom badges, at least that's what I saw on newer cars on Shanghai Line 2.

Company stock photo of Hangzhou Line 1 rolling stock.

In Shanghai line 2 the trains are not like that. They are pretty much wider and feature 5 doors at each side, while here you can see 4.

Better compare Hangzhou train with Shanghai trains ob line 6 (Hello Kitty) and 8.

The train, however, in my opinion is sleeker than those in Shanghai.

P.S. The image provided by you is too large.

Hangzhou Metro has a sweet looking logo. Very clever, looks almost '70's to me.

I'm responding to an earlier post about the badge, the line 2 cars made by PZ has Alstom badges. Yeah the picture is large even on my 1900x1200 monitor but that's what PZ has on its website.

Why is there no lines crossing the West Lake? There's a lot of people (most tourists) around the lake every hour and it's not easy to get out if you are at the far side of the lake. At least a branch line should be built connecting the most famous spot of Hangzhou.

The far side of the West Lake is villa quarters. Obviously the big shots don't need metros.

And then, there are tea fields and forests and mountains there. Not so many residential areas or offices.

China has very professional looking staff for their transportation I've noticed compared to places like Chicago or New York.

How do you know that? China has 50+ official ethnic groups that all look more or less "Chinese". The four workers pictured need not necessarily be from the same ethnic group. What are you looking for, a white person, a black person, and an Indian person to be working for CHR?

The problem is that the most of China is from the same ethnicity, Geography. This ethnicity is Han Chinese. 1.2 billion Han Chinese people live in China. Zhejiang province, which is where Hangzhou is, has a ethnicity breakup of 99.2% Han chinese and 0.4% She.

Coming back on topic, I think that the Hangzhou Metro is quite similar to the Hong Kong MTR (which is natural because the MTRC built it). However, some of the fonts used do not feel as nice. Overall though, it seems well-made.

Almost all mainland metros are similar to Hong Kong MTR, except possibly Chongqing monorail and Wuhan "light rail."
