If I am interpreting the little, internationally recognizable, airplane logo correctly, line 2 will go by the airport.

It's a Chinese symbol for long distance buses.

Long-distance buses aren't BRT. They are just shuttle buses going to smaller cities in the province.

No there are only two railways that goes north-south and east-west through Guizhou like a cross with Guiyang as the hub in the middle.
The province only has about 25-30 % urbanization so many live in isolated villages in the mountains with dirt roads leading there.
Guizhou is the poorest province in China and the infrastructure is quite underdeveloped. It's also very mountainous so building railways and road is expensive since you must build bridges and tunnels. Though this is changing as the government has invested in infrastructure in it's poorer provinces, so right now they are building infrastructure everywhere in the province.

Guiyang orders metro trains from NPRT
Wednesday, January 06, 2016



MIDAS Holdings, Singapore, announced on January 4 that its Chinese joint venture Nanjing Puzhen SR Rail Transport (NPRT) has secured a Yuan 1.28bn ($US 200m) contract to supply rolling stock for the first phase of the metro network in Guiyang, the capital of China's southwestern Guizhou province

Tunnelling on the initial section of the 34.3km Line 1 is due to be completed by April and commissioning is scheduled for next year, with delivery of the train fleet due to begin later this year. A 147.7km network with 98 stations is ultimately envisaged

Guiyang (pronounced Kuei-iang) section is now on the main page on Ditiezu, so it means it's opening soon! I remember back when I registered in this forum (2010) someone had posted some expected openings, and the one furthest in the future was Guiyang. At that time I thought 2017 was really far away (for Chinese standards), and here we are now. But, like it has happened in Qingdao, Fuzhou and Nanning, line 1 is going to open in two steps: first between Xiamaixi and the North Station, expected for September, and then the rest sometime in 2018.
