No doubt it is a good thread. I’ve some requests & questions –

1) Please post some front side photos of subway cars of Shenzhen, Shenyang & Nanjing.
2) Please post maps of planned subways of Chongqing & Suzhou with English stations names for non-Mandarin peoples like me.
3) This thread completely ignores tramway systems. They are also urban rail transit. Trams are running continuously in Changchun, Dalian & Hong Kong. Recently Tianjin returned tram as a modern rubber tired system. Shanghai is also planning about such a rubber tired system. Please add that information with details and photos.
4) Please post a complete map of tramway of Dalian with planned lines.
5) Please post a complete map of tramway of Tianjin (Including previously closed network & present rubber tired network).
6) Please post a complete map of tramway of Shanghai (Including previously closed network & future rubber tired network).
7) Has Beijing recently returned tram as a heritage system? If yes, then please post details, photos & map (including previously closed network & present heritage network).

Please answer as soon as possible.

Best wishes for more subways. Also include tramways in this thread because they are also urban rail transport.

I also have 2 questions –
a) Has Beijing recently returned tram as a heritage system?
b) Has Shanghai recently returned tram as a modern rubber tired system (like Tianjin)?

Please try to answer these.

a) no trams in Beijing, they build metros instead, and BRT lines
b) the short test line is probably not open yet to the public - but im not sure about that

Yes they have. It's located on Qianmen Dajie, not long, just a 2-3km straight line. And yes it's a "heritage system", mainly for aesthetics in the area and tourist to take joy rides in. No one actually commutes on that tram.

From www.urbanrail.net, I knew that Tianjin has one metro line i.e. Line 1, & Binhai line is the light rail line. But the same site informs that the extension of that line is under construction, which is Line 9.

So I think, line 1 is metro line & line 9 is light rail line. There is also a rubber tired tram line (translohr). Tianjin now has metro, light rail & tram. Is it true? Please clear my confusion.

When the construction of Tianjin subway started, was the tram tracks (closed in 1972) was discovered under the road in the time of tunneling?

That's not even a real tram. It's just a bus made to look like a tram.

That looks like a bus to you?


The tram line is a replica of the same line that existed at the start of the last century. It's all a plan to make Qianmen Dajie to look like "back in those days".

It runs on rails...

It's not the wires that determine trams, it's the rails.

CHINA | Trams

A large number of cities in China are planning tram networks: see
http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showpo...&postcount=505

Rearranging the contents by due date:
  1. Shenyang, tram Line 6 opening in June 2014, Line 4 to construct in 2014
  2. Nanjing, opens in August 2014
  3. Huai'an, opens in September 2014
  4. Suzhou, opens in December 2014
  5. Guangzhou, Haizhu line opens in December 2014
  6. Shenzhen, opens in December 2014
  7. Chengdu, opens in June 2015
  8. Haikou, opens in December 2015
  9. Wuhan, opens in 2015
  10. Beijing, Xijiao line opens in 2015
  11. Foshan, opens in 2016
  12. Zhuhai, opens in 2016
  13. Chongqing, 2 lines planned
  14. Zhuzhou, 3 lines planned
  15. Shanghai, 6 lines planned
Many of these cannot be discussed in this forum:
Shenyang - tram thread does exist
Nanjing - thread specific to metro
Huaian - hereby creating a thread
Suzhou - thread generic to public transit
Guangzhou - thread generic to public transportation
Shenzhen - thread generic to public transport
Chengdu - thread specific to metro
Haikou - no thread whatsoever
Wuhan - thread specific to subway
Beijing - thread generic to public transport
Foshan - no thread whatsoever
Zhuhai - no thread whatsoever
Chongqing - thread specific to metro
Zhuzhou - no thread whatsoever
Shanghai - thread generic to public transport.

I started with Huaian because it shall open soon and, of all the cities listed, it seemed to me to be most obscure small town. Although the population is highly arguable and it is not clear whether Haikou or Zhuzhou might be smaller, those were certainly less obscure for me.
My estimate for the population of Huaian is 860 000, in the 425 square km of Qinghe and Qingpu districts.

So... what are the parts of Huaian like where the tram network is built? What are the traffic needs? And how is the progress of construction, seeing that it is due to open this September? While trolleybus lines can be built in few weeks putting up posts in sidewalks and hanging the wires, building tram tracks requires ripping up roads for months, so some works might be expected.... what´s going on?

Why don't you do like the BRAZIL URBAN TRANSPORT COMPILATION thread and create a thread with all urban transpot in China and a constantly updated first page.

I think that's a good idea that we create a CHINA URBAN TRAM COMPILATION thread.

Or Change this thread to "CHINA | Trams"
