What does the staff do? Don't they only need a person that drives the trains? Why need 4 persons?

To make sure idiots don't try to force themselves into closing doors.

Which I am certain is an inherent problem in China and will be so for the quite a few years to come. To be honest, to a certain extent, this problem is present in Hong Kong too. People try to run into the trains when they think it may be going. Hence, the MTR too has some employees on the platform. I think it is a good safety precaution too and can be a good idea in countries where there is no platform screen door because then someone could get hurt or someone could try and commit suicide.

My wife told me Hangzhou subway didn't open. The launch has been put off to the end of October. Is that true?

Signs have gone up all over town directing pedestrians to their nearest station in preparation for trial service later this month

http://ori.hangzhou.com.cn/ornews/co...nt_4429517.htm

















At least some station names are translated instead of transliterated (e.g. West Lake Cultural Square)

Either that or that it's below you, although at 300 meters this would be deeper than St Petersburg or Pyongyang, so I doubt it.

I don't like the down arrow pointing to the metro station, an up arrow would make more sense to me. Down arrow to me means that the station entrance is near the sign. At least they have a distance on the sign.

I think the entrance is just right behind the photographer. They just want to show off the biggest bike share program in the world as well.

In China,



means you're going down (to the platforms).

Or going down this way (I suggest no running ) ...

Still don't have the exact opening date yet but it should be very soon.

Here's a picture of waiting seats in Hangzhou subway stations, very traditional style

I was in Hangzhou two years ago and a large section of the downtown area was sealed off for the subway construction.

Anyways, love the west lake area!

So, will Line 1 open this month?
1 Oct - 29 Oct - Nov. Is this final term or it will be postponed. I do not know whether there are any more authorities who have not been riding Line 1 yet.

Hangzhou metro to debut

Nov 17, 2012 | Source: City Express/Translated by Shanghai Daily


Hangzhou residents will join other major cities in China in welcoming an underground subway transportation network when the city's Metro Line 1 will finally be put into service.

A total of 600,000 free tickets have been handed out to residents for a four-day trial operation, starting tomorrow.

The subway will be open to ticket holders from 9am to 5pm from Sunday to Wednesday. Passengers need to pay attention to the scheduled time printed on their tickets to avoid huge crowds.

The metro operator is asking each commuter to take part in a survey after the free ride and suggestions are welcome.
