By network length, London is the largest, while by number of stations, New York is the largest and London is rank 6, see here: by length, by stations.

given the speed of the construction that number is utterly irrelevant because a year later it will be not more or less same as with other systems but it will be vastly greater.

This is old news, I know, but I don't believe this has been posted here before.

China plans to construct a maglev subway line in Beijing. These two youtube videos give an overview of the project.

MISC | Bus View: The bendy buses Beijing BRT line Three

I went to Beijing this year in January,shooting a lot of bendy bus pics,
I really like beijing city,large partly owning to it has got the biggest bendy
bus system in the world,more than 10,000 bendy buses.
I had stayed in Beijing for 9 days.Actually,it was the third time i went to
Beijing.The main purpose to go to Beijing is to see my love(bendy bus) and
take some pics bring home.During the 9 days,I had gone to some travel
sights although i had gone there before, such as The Tiananmen
Square,Yuanmingyuan,Gugong,Great Wall and some things like that.Also I had
tasted a lot of local foods,each one has got its own unique flavor,for
instance,The old Beijing four seasons dip-boiled mutton,roasted meal and
some things to that effect.
I think the brief 9 days trip will be collected in my mind for ever.For my
part,Beijing is fist choosing city I want to stay.I love Beijing,I love bendy bus.

1.

Pretty nice middle joint between the two carriages.I pretty like it.It is told
that the rear engine bendy bus should be equiped with this special kind of
middle organ which has a hydraulic pressure system in it.The device cost approximately 70,000 US dollars,but it provides more safe situation than the conventional middle joint,so it makes the bendy bus with high flexibility when the bus turn arround.


2.

Interior view,pretty simple but comfortable design.
All about the bus is nice,but one thing haunt me is that when the bus steers through the unsmooth road,the interior decoration will give terrible sounds.
It attribute to the poor skill of domestic assembly for one part,for the most part owning to choose bad materials to cut the cost,making the bus prices will have more superiorities than other brands bus in the market.
Actually,the original type of interior decoration does not look like this,bus fans call this type as type I .Normally, type I is sturdy enough,so there is no abnormal sounds at all.But this new type show a bad performace,it emulated from BENZ Citaro G.


3.

This pic display to us is one of the BRT Line Three`s parking areas,it is located in Hongfuyuan Town,it has got some countryside flavor,spaciously,it is a tough task for you guys to find a tall building there.


I will up date this threat.So more details and pics will bring to you in the coming soon.
But in the meantime,I will strongly appreciate it if u can leave your oberservations and comments here after
taking look at this threat,also if u have any questions,just spit it out,I will reply you as long as I see it.

Don't want to over-police, but please make sure everyone reads the new announcement for the subway forum and the new naming convention.

Any updates on the Beijing subway? Why isn't it being built at the pace of the Shanghai metro?

I've noticed that the new trains on Line 1 and Line 4 somewhat resemble the new Munich U-bahn rolling stock and the trains on the Nanakuma Line of the Fukuoka Subway.

There's mention in the Chinese press that by year 2020, Beijing's subway / light rail network will consist of 30 lines, 450 stations, and a total length of 1050 Km.

Why Beijing didn't plan to build subway as complex as in Paris and Tokyo? Build more stations?

What is the advantages of this design compare with older city like Paris and Tokyo?

For some reason in China subway stations are very far away from each other. People living in a middle point between two of them will keep needing a car.

What's the average gap between the stations. I guess it is less than 1.5 km for most of the lines ??
