Yes, the Hong Kong MTR did help build Shenzhen's subway. That's why the trains, stations, and logo look the same.

It does even share transfer stations with the Honk Kong MTR because it's a neighboring city to Hong Kong.

Shenzhen Metro has NO DIRECT TRANSFERS with Hong Kong MTR. MTR only serves southern Hong Kong. Shenzhen Metro's Luohu station is right next to KCR's Lo Wu Station (same Chinese name, different dialectical romanization). However, this transfer is sluggish as travellers must pass through Hong Kong Customs AND Guangdong Province customs in this border-crossing process.

Incorrect...

The Shenzhen Metro (SZM, Chinese: 深圳地鐵 is the underground railway
in Shenzhen, Guangdong Province, China. It is owned by the Shenzhen
Metro Company (SZMC). and 1st phase was build by SZMC its own....

But, The 2nd phase of line number 4 will be built by MTR Corporation Limited.
The whole line will be operated by MTR on a BOT basis. MTR, in which Hong
Kong's government owns a controlling stake, has also signed memorandums of
understanding to invest in Line 2 and Line 3, which will cost more than 10
billion yuan.








1st phase


later phase

China's 1st Hybrid Bus Commercial Line Opens in Shenzhen

China's first hybrid-bus commercial line operational in Shenzhen
24 November 2005
Xinhua's China Economic Information Service

GUANGZHOU, November 24 (CEIS) -- China's first mixed power-driven bus commercial line was operational recently in Shenzhen, one of China's economic powerhouses in southern Guangdong province.

The first batch of seven diesel-electric buses has been in service on Shenzhen bus lines, and another 18 buses will be delivered in the near future.

All these hybrid buses were made by the Shenzhen based Wuzhoulong Motors Co., Ltd, which have been proved through scientific inspection to save over 15 percent on fuel compared with the traditional diesel buses.

Hybrid-electric bus has been listed as a key project of China's "863 program" (a national high-tech plan initiated in March 1986 aiming to enhance the country's overall power) of the Tenth Five-Year Plan.

Currently, many giant auto-makers in China are focusing on such environmentally friendly buses to meet the upgraded demand of public transport of the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games.

According to the Wuzhoulong Motors, the operational hybrid-diesel- electric bus in Shenzhen has just won the "China Best Environmental Protection Bus Awards" in the China Bus Competition held in Beijing this July.

Founded in May 1987, Wuzhoulong Motors is a comprehensive high- tech enterprise that integrates bus manufacturing, automobile components trading and electric hybrid bus research and development. The company is also the first company in China to export hybrid buses to overseas market.
