With Line 11, total number of stations will be 142 (131+11) and the system length will be at most 230 km by the end of this year.

Shenzhen will probably become the 15th city in the world with over 200 km long metro system.
List of cities with more than 200 km network in decreasing order of length:
Shanghai, Beijing, Seoul, NYC, London, Moscow, Tokyo, Madrid, Guangzhou, Mexico City, Nanjing, Paris, Delhi, Chongqing

China is the only country with more than one city in the list. Nevertheless, expansion of Shenzhen and Tianjin metros is long overdue.
The metro system in Guangzhou is too small for a city of its size and stature.

You forgot Line 9 and 7 opening at the end of this year. So 285km or 100km of new lines. Shenzhen opens its subways in huge bursts. The last burst was in 2010-2011 where over 100km of lines opened. This year is one with about 100km. The next burst is 2019-2020 where 120km of new subway will open.

There are large expansion plans underway. Apart from the lines completing in 2016, there are extensions to every existing line and new Lines 6, 8, 10 under construction or will start construction this year.

I was not the rush hour and it bound for downtown , so the train was almost empty.


No window for watching the driving cab view . And the No. of the train was above the driving cab door . The "1" at the end means it is the No.1 car of the train .

The screen was showing the next station , and the green Chinese words at both sides mean "Door open at this side"


Also it has strip map to display


There are 4 CCTV cams in each car , preventing crimes .


No safety belts at the wheel chair space , a little bit dangerous when the train stop rapidly .


Fire extinguishers are equipped in each car .


At the underground station.

Shenzhen ups the ante with airport lift
1 March 2016
China Daily Excerpt

Shenzhen has raised the stakes in its effort to win back mainland travelers who have been patronizing Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) for cheaper international flights.

And, experts say the delay in the construction of a third runway at HKIA is allowing airports in the Pearl River Delta (PRD) region to catch up with the SAR.

Shenzhen's metro operator - Shenzhen Metro Group - is expected to give a big lift to a Shenzhen Bao'an International Airport with the scheduled opening in June of Line 11, which will link up the city center and neighboring cities with the airport and offer the most advanced carriages and top-end services.

The new metro line has a planned route of 51.9 kilometers with 17 stations, and a maximum speed of up to 120 kilometers per hour.

It will have eight cars, including two first-class carriages designed for airport passengers. It will be the first of its kind in the mainland's subway system, featuring transverse seating and luggage racks, but passengers need to pay a premium for first-class tickets.

The maximum capacity of the eight cars is 2,564 and it's expected to take only half an hour to get to the airport from downtown. Shenzhen Metro plans to invest 2 billion yuan ($310 million) in 33 car sets costing 7.75 million yuan each.

A section of the route - from Bihai Station to Airport Station - will offer passengers spectacular sea views.

Experts say Line 11, which will link the downtown Futian district with Nanshan and the Qianhai Free Trade Zone, will greatly complement Shenzhen airport's existing transportation network.

For years, Shenzhen residents have been using HKIA to take advantage of cheaper international flights, and Shenzhen airport is now striving to win them back as HKIA reaches saturation point.

"The long construction cycle for HKIA's third runway has enabled airports in the region to catch up," said Zheng Tianxiang, professor at the Center for Studies of Hong Kong, Macao and the Pearl River Delta at Sun Yat-sen University in Guangzhou.

Last year, Shenzhen Airport received 1.66 million passengers from international routes, accounting for only 4 percent of the overall number of travelers. It now expects the number of passengers it handles to reach 55 million, 10 percent of whom will be on international routes.

Zheng, however, reckoned that it won't be smooth sailing for Shenzhen, and advised the city to cover new destinations along the Belt and Road route, such as Southeast Asia, the Middle East and South Asia, while HKIA's advantage lies in international routes to Europe and America.

Moreover, the market will also expand to neighboring cities as Shenzhen Metro's Line 11 will be extended to Dongguan.

At a meeting of officials from Shenzhen, Dongguan, Huizhou, Shanwei and Heyuan on Feb 18, the proposal to connect Line 11 with Dongguan Metro's Line 3 was approved. At the same time, it was also decided to link up Shenzhen with Huizhou via a subway.

Trains of Shenzhen metro system

Photoed by @广铁深段0001

The first-phrase of Shenzhen metro rolling stock which used to ran both line 1 and line 4 , the movia , made by bombardier and Changchun Railway Vehicles Company Ltd.
22 sets in total , 6 cars per train .
The train number in the front of the car "1011" , the first "1" means line 1 , "01" means the first train of line 1 , the last "1" means the first car of the train. So the whole sets of train will be "101~122"
So the rolling stock in the pic is the very first train of line 1 .


The Third-phrase rolling stock of line 1 . Made by CRRC Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Co., Ltd. in 2009 . 26 sets in total .


The second-phrase rolling stock of line 1 . 4 sets in total , made by CNR Changchun Railway Vehicles Co., Ltd. , from 2007 to 2010 , the number are "123~126" . It was ordered in 2007 , but this bulk of train sets were put in to use until 2010 . Later than the third phrase train .


The fourth-phrase rolling stock of line 1 .Made by CRRC Zhuzhou Electric Locomotive Co., Ltd. from 2014 to 2015 . 33 sets in total for the passenger growth after phrase III metro lines are built . ordered in 2012 , put in to use in 2015 .


Rolling stock of line 2 , made by CNR Changchun Railway Vehicles Co., Ltd. , 35 sets in total , the number are “201~235” , 2 of them was borrowed to line 5 because the number of passengers of line 2 is much lower of line 5 . It is rare to see those two trains running on the elevated section . It's shape is similar to the second phrase train of line 1 .


The first-phrase rolling stock of line 3 , made by CNR Changchun Railway Vehicles Co., Ltd. , 24 sets of first bulk and 19 of the second bulk . Also ,the number goes "301~343" .Line 3 is the only one in Shenzhen metro system which running 6B trains , and it is very crowded in the rush hour . It will never be new lines that with 6b trains in Shenzhen I suppose .


The rolling stock of line 4 , 28 sets in total , made by Nanjing Puzhen Rolling Stock Works from 2010 to 2012 , it was the 4-car train , became fully 6-car train after the upgrade project from 2013 to 2015 . These trains are own by the MTR .


The first-phrase trains of line 5 , made by made by Nanjing Puzhen Rolling Stock Works from 2009 to 2012 . 30 sets in total . All kinds trains of line 1\2\5 are similar to each other , just a little different of faces and the color of the strip on the body .
It has an angry face isn't it ?


The second-phrase trains of line 5 , made by CNR Changchun Railway Vehicles Co., Ltd. from 2014 to 2015 , 20 sets in total .

Are their side views that different too? And what about the interior?

I hope to make up an encyclopedia on Chinese metro trains one day, so they are different!

It will be a little difference at the side view , but still can be identified which type the train is by it's number .

Totally , the newer train's interior including the LCD screen in stead of dot-strip map , foldable seats for more standing space and LED lighting . And the other aspect such as the exterior of the seat , will be almost similar .

There are so many kinds of metro trains in China (especially in Shanghai) , it would be a large project to make a fully encyclopedia for each kind of rolling stock . But for Guangzhou Metro , I can tell you the details of it's trains .

As or Shanghai, I know them perfectly by myself as well as I know the differences in the interior. Anyway thanks a lot.

I have another question. Do all Chinese metro trains have official model/modification numbers? I know for Shanghai there are AC01, AC02 etc while for Beijing there are DKG, DZG etc. Is there a unique official system for all models and modifications of the trains throughout the whole country?

Good update.Any idea how long the SZ metro system is going to be at the end of 2016? Currently it's shown as 177km in Wikipedia and has been so for quite a few years.

Shenzhen metro should be 284 km long by the end of 2016. Interesting, all three lines opening this year will come together (and with line 1) at Chegongmiao.

What about Longhua tram? Wikipedia says it was due to be opened last year, but nothing has taken place AFAIK.

I think more and more metro systems will be merged (interchangeable ticket, pricing, etc.) over time. The top 10 list might look like this:

1) Pearl River Delta (Shenzhen + Dongguan + Guangzhou + Foshan)
2) Yangtze River Delta (Shanghai + Suzhou + Wuxi + Changzhou)
3) Beijing Subway (Beijing + Neighboring Districts)
4) Seoul Metro (Seoul + Incheon)
5) NCR Metro (Delhi + Gurgaon + Noida)
6) NYC Metro
7) London Underground
8) Chongqing Metro
9) Nanjing Metro
10) Moscow Metro

I expect every system in the top 10 to be over 350 km by 2025.
