Of course its bad if it was good the US won't need any public transport till this day which isn't the case. China is afraid that Beijingers are becoming more like a automobile society and they're not building metros fast enough. I forgot which research company I think its Standard and Poor they said that Shanghai and Beijing should increase its development on public transportation fast or else it'll be hard for the people to loose its habit of driving. Bangkok and LA are two examples of such cities.

The pictures are NOT what it looks like from reality!!!

I went to shenzhen yesterday and I rode on the metro... It was... not good...

First... went to DA JU YUAN station (the station with the black and white columns), while entering the station, I smell the foul smell of urine and sewage... then as I entered the station, it was VERY dark and the floor tiles are like soaked with leaked water. Then I went to the platform, it was stuffy and it was not as stinky, but still some smell... Then the trains were very bright, but then due to many people riding it, the train smell of sweat... Later, got off at LO HU station. That station was much much better, although still some sign of deterioration, but then there were no smells and the station looked clean.

I'm not surprised my friend... PRC is literally full of crap...

But when I travelled on SZMTR, it was so under used they might as well have stuck to surface bus transport.

As for stations, many light fitting were still not replaced in DEC 2005 when i went there, and lighting was set on dim to conserve power.... :O

Thanks, brings back memories of waiting 10 minutes for the subway to arrive and then commencing to be crushed inside the car

Good memories.

The first one most be the problems from the washrooms. It is really common in China, but it is really unaccaptable for a metro. I do argee with the from cal_t:

For the second point, it is really hot in the Pearl River Delta yesterday, so it is not that surprising of full of sweat in the metro! The air-con may have to blame then.

Actually, only the stations which are closed to HK and the major attraction points are crowded. Others are not developed well.

I remember this system very well, and it's definately one of the best designed and most convenient on mainland China. The other ones that I've been on is Beijing, Nanjing, Shanghai and Guangzhou (and Hong Kong of course), and I have to say that Shenzhen's metro may be the nicest one. I didn't experience any smell or litter inside the stations, but maybe because I only visited "bigger ones".

I have never ridden Shenzhen's metro but to some extent does resemble HK's MTR station-wise.

I have ridden on Shenzhen metro and I think it's good compared to most metros around the world. The only mess is around the auto ticketing machine area. People have difficulties using that machine so I have to wait in a long line to buy a plasic ticket.

Well the things you listed are a problem but it does happen in big cities. Some of the smell could be from the metro toilet or clogged sewage. As for the lack of air conditioning and low level of lighting you should know that China does not have enough energy due to its rapid development. Its only reasonable to turn on the lights at big and crowded stations where saving power makes sense to those stations that are less used. If you really want to complain try riding the Paris metro,London or New York metro its much worse. Yes I know this is a new station but hopefully these things would be addressed.

Shenzhen's metro is very new - it opened last year. Again, it resembles Hong Kong's system since it was developed in part by the MTR.

The most striking part of the resemblence is of course the logotype!

I find Shenzhens metro to be very modern but looks less fashionable and plain
