These stats are beginning to get quite blurred much like the data about which city has the largest tram/streetcar system. Is RER/S-Bahn suburban rail if grade separated also a Metro or is LRT also a streetcar?

I guess not, otherwise we would see some other cities up there like Paris.

According to my data Guangzhou is currently at 277 km and thus behind both Madrid and Shenzhen, as I count the Guangzhou-Foshan line as Foshan. I like how half of the top 10 metros are Chinese ones .

I have to admit, the only metro in the top 10 I've ridden is that of Madrid. I may have done over 100 km out of 294.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guangfo_Metro

Guangfo Metro

(Chinese: 广佛地铁; pinyin: Guǎngf Dtiě), Guangfo Line (Chinese: 广佛线; pinyin: Guǎngf Xin), or Line 1 of the FMetro (Chinese: 佛山地铁1号线; pinyin: Fshān Dtiě Yī Ho Xin) is a subway line that connects the Chinese cities Foshan and Guangzhou. The line is currently[when?] 20 km long and has 14 stations, which are all underground.[3] When the line is completed, it will have 32.2 km of tracks and 21 stations, of which 17.4 km of tracks and 10 stations will be located in Guangzhou.[4] It was expected to start construction in 2002 with a tentative opening in 2009.[5][6][7] However, due to capital shortage, its construction was claimed to be suspended until it resumed in 2007.[8] The section between Kuiqilu (魁奇路) and Xilang (西朗) was completed in 2010 while the route between Xilang and Lijiao (Chinese: 沥滘) will be completed in 2016.[9] The Xilang-Yangang section began operation on December 28, 2015.[10] Since 24 April 2016, Wi-Fi is available across the entire line

In 5 years time, by 2022, top 10 Metro/Subway system in the world will be all in Chinese cities.

The world's largest subway systems are mostly built by the tried and true "cut-and-cover" method.

What, are you trying to say me something that I already know? Anyway, I changed the bolded part to my rationale to count all of it as Foshan, it is not numbered in Guangzhou. Another thing will be Ma'anshan line 1/Nanjing line S2. I'll count it as Ma'anshan as it will be barely in Jiangsu province.

In Chinese metro systems, all underground metro stations installed central air-con systems, PSD systems must be installed for energy saving and safety for passengers。Even the old metro lines of Beijing built in 1960s' had been installed PSD recently.

PSD system installed has nothing to do with the design of the stations but with the safety of the passengers.

Returning to the discussion of the size of metro networks. How do you see the top 10 in 2022 and 2035?
