Not "maglev".

equipped with BYD's leading iron battery technology, in case of emergency, even if the vehicle power, but also by enabling the battery to continue to drive more than 3km to ensure the safety of passengers arrived at the station. Permanent magnet wheel direct drive motor with small size, light weight, high torque, high precision, small operating sound and easy maintenance and so on. Lightweight aluminum body of the lightweight effect is significant, torsional stiffness, long service life. The single-axle bogie has the characteristics of strong curve passing ability, small turning radius, small tire wear and low energy consumption. The energy feedback system can achieve energy recovery during braking and reduce energy consumption. - http://club.bydauto.com.cn/portal.ph...=3789&mobile=2 (Google translate)


A bit of Yinchuan ...

China's first domestically-made Sky Rail opens to traffic in Ningxia

http://www.chinadaily.com.cn/busines...t_31451447.htm



Carmaker is confident of earning 30 billion yuan in revenue from the new sector next year

BYD, China's biggest electric carmaker, launched its first commercial monorail train service in Yinchuan, capital of the Ningxia Hui autonomous region, on Friday.

Its SkyRail is also China's first straddle-type monorail system. BYD has intellectual property rights to its design and other aspects.

The SkyRail system has seven rakes that will ply on the 5.67-km, eight-station route.

Yinchuan plans to build a monorail network spanning 300 km in all in the future.

SkyRail's seven trains have three cars each. Each car can carry around 170 passengers at a speed of up to 80 kilometers per hour.

SkyRail construction started in April and was completed in only about four months at a total cost of about 600 million yuan ($91 million).

Wang Chuanfu, BYD chairman and president, said: "Mass transit systems are an indispensable solution to alleviate traffic congestion in cities. The launch of SkyRail demonstrates how BYD's innovative products can help alleviate traffic congestion in urban areas all over the world."

The carmaker has spent about five years and 5 billion yuan to develop the new system.

It tried out the first monorail system in October at its headquarters in Shenzhen. It plans to begin construction of more SkyRail lines in 20 cities across China next year.

Earlier this week, the company said it would build its first overseas monorail line in the city of Iloilo in the Philippines. That line is scheduled to begin operations in 2019.

Wang De'an, an analyst at Ping An Securities, said BYD will earn 5 to 6 billion yuan in monorail revenue this year and 30 billion yuan next year.

He said diversification into rail transport would open up new business opportunities for BYD and drive the company's development in the future.

According to the company's interim financial results, its net profit declined 23.8 percent year-on-year to 1.72 billion yuan in the first six months of this year.

Monorail is now among BYD's four key business sectors for the first time. Others are cars, mobile phone components and batteries.

Post-results, BYD's stock fell in both Shenzhen and Hong Kong. But after Friday's monorail launch, the shares appeared set to reverse the downtrend, closing a tad up in Hong Kong.

"Wang De'an, an analyst at Ping An Securities, said BYD will earn 5 to 6 billion yuan in monorail revenue this year and 30 billion yuan next year"

That's equivalent to ~175 km of dual monorails, ~175 stations and 300+ trains .

overpasses and skyscrapers are the beauty of a city. Wires are an eyesore.

Couldn't agree more, look how this beautiful overpass wonderfully complements the 100 year old bridge...

Many (particularly Europeans) would say overpasses and skyscrapers are an eyesore. I disagree but that is the point, what constitutes as an eyesore is completely subjective. The fact that the new eBRTs and trams of Beijing and Shanghai are use regular overhead lines for most of their running length shows that cities are great because they are great not because of some trendy BS "image" of what a great city should look like. I think they are seeing some major potential issues, financial and technical, in the long term of running so many unnecessary sections wireless. What the long term are the operating costs? How often and how are they disposing the batteries? I think in the next few years when the tram lines start to have heavier passenger loads, need more performance or operating budgets are under stress from ordering so much batteries they will start switching more and more sections to overhead lines.

Over 40 Chinese Third-Tier Cities Plan to Build Subway Systems

https://www.yicaiglobal.com/news/ove...subway-systems

(Yicai Global) Sept. 6 -- Some 43 third-tier cities in China, mainly in Shandong, Henan, Guangdong, Anhui and Hebei provinces, have received approval to develop subway lines in the future, driven by economic development and urbanization efforts.

The country approved four new metro projects last year, in Wuhu in Anhui Province, Shaoxing in Zhejiang Province, Luoyang in Henan Province and Baotou in Inner Mongolia, all of which are third-tier cities.

Future subway developments are expected to be in such provinces as Shandong, Henan, Guangdong, Anhui and Hebei, which have large populations but low rates of urbanization.

Third- and fourth-tier cities remain less attractive compared to nearby conurbations, experts say. They are less optimistic about plans to accelerate urbanization in these areas as people prefer to move directly to first- and second-tier cities.

The cost of building subway lines is increasing in line with costs of relocation. Guangzhou Metro Phase III southern Guangdong province will cost USD130 million (CNY850 million) per kilometer reach. Third- and fourth-tier cities should therefore remain cautious on these capital-intensive projects.

Wonderful. Mostly all >1 million cities are planning metro systems now I guess. They certainly need to.

Across China: More metro lines in smaller Chinese cities

http://news.xinhuanet.com/english/20..._136594680.htm

BEIJING, Sept. 8 (Xinhua) -- An increasing number of Chinese cities plan to have underground transit systems to ease traffic.

By the end of 2016, a total of 30 cities had metro systems, with a total length of 3,586 kilometers, up 16.8 percent year on year, according to the Ministry of Housing and Urban-Rural Development. China has 657 cities.

Since June 26, Shijiazhuang, capital of north China's Hebei Province, has had two metro lines. A daily average of 200,000 people use the metro for commuting.

Other cities in Hebei, which struggles with pollution, are planning to apply for approval for underground rail systems, including the cities of Handan, Qinhuangdao, Tangshan, Baoding and Zhangjiakou.

The first subway line in China was Line 1 in Beijing, which opened in 1969. It runs west to east in parallel with Chang'an, a well-known avenue in Beijing. It is one of the world's busiest metro lines, with a daily ridership of 1.4 million.

Beijing now has 19 lines, totalling 574 kilometers.

Every workday, over 10 million passengers ride the Beijing metro. By 2020, the total subway length of the Chinese capital is expected to increase to 1,000 kilometers.

Metros are a key means of transport to alleviate traffic congestion in big cities.

Since May 2013, cities have only needed approval from provincial authorities rather than ministries to build a metro line. In 2014, 16 underground railway projects were approved.

"Metros are not only convenient for local people commuting, but also fast and convenient for tourists and business travellers," said Chen Jianguo, a resident in Quanzhou, eastern China's Fujian province.

"China's third-tier cities are actively building metros. The enthusiasm will be a key driver of infrastructure building," said Jiang Shenggang, a metro expert in Fujian.

Experts estimate that by 2020, 50 cities in China will have metro lines, totalling 6,000 kilometers. Investment will exceed four trillion yuan.

"Cities need to have scientific planning in developing underground transit systems, because they are rather expensive. The ultimate purpose is to better serve people living in big cities," said Sun Zhuang, a professor with Tongji University in Shanghai.

China Urban Transport system is the world largest and best transportation system. The subways and metro connect whole China and reduce the distance between different provinces as It also provides assistance and technical facilities to other countries projects.
