With the last day of the (Gregorian) year, we welcome yet another city to metro club, this being Xiamen. The city had already an elevated BRT, and now is opening a metro line. Line 1 of the "Across Mass Rapid Transit", as Xiamen Metro refers itself, runs from Zhenhai Lu to Yannei over 30.3 km and 24 stations, connecting the island to the North station in the mainland. Current long term plans call for 11 lines (one of them to be rebuilt from present-day BRT), as well as several commuter rail lines to nearby cities. But nothing will serve Jinmen, at least not while it remains controlled by Chinese Taipei (n.b.: calling it part of Taiwan is incorrect, this has caused me to change the shorthand form I give to the so-called Republic of China from "Taiwan" to "Chinese Taipei").

So only one BRT elevated will be converted to metro, the rest of BRT lines will be preserved and form together with new metros the transit system?
