Its funny how CNR/CSR don't mention in great detail that alot of their components come from Bombardier/Alstom/Siemens. Yes, they do get a passing mention, but the picture above with the Alstom test kit clearly shows indigenous technology is not quite there, or they are bound by licence/technology transfer and the trains are not 100% local product.

What do you want more than a passing mention? Almost all reports about CSR Puzhen will clearly state that it has acquired technology from Alstom, Bombardier, and Siemens. The fact that almost all Chinese metro rolling stock have their technological roots in Alstom and Bombardier is well known. Speaking of test kits, Boeing actually has to send some of their test instruments to Northrop-Grumman for calibration, they don't exactly advertise that, don't they?

Maybe if I were in the industry I would care more about the subcontractors and their nationalities. But I would think most people like me would be more interested in what is being offered and when, a "passing mention" is just about right. It might be appropriate in a bragging article about how superior Chinese technology is (or all those Skyscrapercity talk threads on my country/city/tribe is better than yours...). We live in a globalised world, only North Korean technology like to be a world apart.

according to Chinese Wikipedia the first section of the phase II southern extension from Beitucheng to Gulou Dajie (Line 2 Transfer) will open in late 2012. In 2013 the reminder of Phase II South from Gulou Dajie to National Art Museum will open. The rest of the line will open in 2015 as Phase III.

Line 6 will open all of phase 1 which is from Haidian Wuluju to Caofang

Rented bikes bridge transport gap in Beijing

BEIJING, Aug. 14 (Xinhua) -- Zhu Ran lives in Beijing's central Dongcheng District and rides Subway Line 5 to her office, located south of the city center. It takes her roughly 15 minutes to walk from the subway station to her office, and, although it didn't save much time, she would sometimes catch the bus from the subway to work.

But now she has another option that actually shaves minutes off her commute: she can take a seven-minute bike ride.

Zhu picks up a bike at the service point near the subway station and drops it at another point near her office. The self-service rental operation requires only the swipe of a card, and short-term users like Zhu can rent the bikes for free. "It's convenient, very nice," she said in a recent interview.

The rental point adjacent to the subway station near Zhu's office can accommodate about 60 bikes. Enclosed by walls of dark gray bricks, with the street-facing side decorated with opaque glass murals, the venue is a major point where commuters can register their transportation cards for the rental service. A smaller rental point may simply consist of a handful of bikes parked along a sidewalk. There are currently 60 rental points with 2,000 bikes operating along Subway Line 5 and Line 10, which run largely through the city's Chaoyang and Dongcheng districts.

These facilities constitute the initial phase of an ambitious plan for an intracity public bike rental service sponsored by the Beijing municipal government. It was officially launched on July 1, following a trial period. By the end of the year, there are expected to be 200 rental points and 10,000 bikes scattered throughout the city, according to the Beijing Municipal Commission of Transport (BMCT).

This is not the first time public bike rentals have been available in the city. Four private companies took up the business and their services caught media attention during the Beijing Olympics in 2008. Not long after that, all four companies found their services unsustainable due to a host of common problems. The biggest problem was the lack of cooperative, standardized operation -- a client often had to return the bike to the same place where it was rented, creating an inconvenience that suppressed potential demand. Sluggish business forced the private operators to turn their rental points into spots to park bikes temporarily or retail outlets.

Meanwhile, success stories were being touted in other cities like east China's Hangzhou, where public bikes had become a much-welcomed means of transportation. BMCT sources say their fresh attempt is based on two years of taking lessons from past experiences in Beijing as well as other cities.

The rental service is sponsored by the government, ensuring uniform practices. The city government's launch fund covers the construction of rental points and equipment purchases and maintenance.

The fleet of white and orange bikes are currently being supplied by the well-known Flying Pigeon Cycle Manufacturing in Tianjin, and each bike can be rented with a registered transportation card at one point and returned to the same or any other point.

Automatic locking technology has been adopted to minimize the number of service workers. Each bike contains an electronic chip that can transmit data on the bike's location, and this technology can monitor the bike flow and help workers adjust bike supplies accordingly.

The rental bikes' main purpose is to help address the problem of the last kilometer of transportation from the subway to the workplace or home, says BMCT. Beijing has a fairly powerful public transportation system, and an intended target of the city's subway development is to enable a person to find a subway station no further than 500 meters away from any point in the city's urban areas. The public bikes are expected to complete this comprehensive system. The bike rental points are generally spaced out by about 500 meters and located along subway lines, close to office buildings and residential areas.

Short-term renting is encouraged and users can enjoy renting the bikes for free for one hour. Because it's a government-financed project, the rental fee is low, one yuan (0.16 U.S. dollar) for every hour after the first hour, with a 10-yuan-per-day limit. Anyone who keeps a bike for more than three days will be fined 20 yuan a day, starting on the fourth day.

A renter needs to have a registered municipal transportation card to be able to enjoy the service. The registration process requires a card holder to present an ID, pay a 200-yuan deposit and sign a service contract. A registered card can be used at all rental points in a self-service manner.

Only permanent Beijing residents are currently eligible to register for the service, but it will be extended to all in October, BMCT sources say.

Preliminary statistics show that about 1,800 cards were registered and bikes were rented about 30,000 times in the first month since the service began.

Wu Qi, a retired oil company worker, collected promotional handouts and application forms at Subway Line 5's Tiantan East Gate Subway Station point in the first week of the service. He has not yet decided to register, but said that he and his children would likely do so. "I like traveling by bike. It's convenient, healthy and non-polluting," he said.

Chen Zhilei, a demobilized military man who also went to the station to inquire about the bikes in the first week of the service, was not optimistic. He noticed that the bike lot was not covered. "The rains will soon turn the elegant new bikes into rusty stuff," he said.

Zhu Ran said the brakes didn't work very well on the bike she rented after the service had been up-and-running for three days.

Maintenance is a concern. Yanhongzhou, a collectively-owned company that is in charge of operating the public bike rental service in Dongcheng District, admitted they have no mechanics fixed to a specific point. "Our teams of maintenance workers move from place to place. Bikes are checked every day," company office director Cheng Ying said in the dedicated operation center. As for sheltering bikes kept in lots, she said the design of points is standardized.

Yanhongzhou is currently managing the operations of 30 rental points with 40 staffers. The company is responsible for its human costs, as well as maintenance and spare parts expenses.

Cheng admitted that the first-hour of free service may present a problem in sustainability even though it meets the government's requirements.

"We regard it as a public interest project. But it should not be a burden on our company, which has a history of more than 50 years," Cheng said.

In the initial period, the government is expected to provide the company with a subsidy for the operation. "In the long run, we may find ways to make a profit," she said.

With the rented bike, Wang Yaqing, an IT worker at an office building in Dongcheng District, has cut his travel time from the subway station to the office to five minutes, down from 15 minutes' walking. He said he hopes there will be more rental points in the future, so he can pedal home from another subway station.

It is not easy to decide on the location and size of a specific point, because available land is scare in mature urban areas and demand for bike rentals is difficult to predict. The commuter use demonstrates a clear pattern, and bikes are being trucked to points where supplies run low at peak times.

According to the government plan, the second phase of the project will expand the service to other urban districts, adding some 15,000 bikes along the way. In 2015, there will be 1,000 rental points and 50,000 bikes, BMCT said.

Yep, 2012 is another good year for Beijing metro expansion, though by Wikipedia there will be a dearth of openings next year, only a south-western sliver of line 14. 2014 should be a good year again.

well I'm having suspicions that 2013 is missing some lines as the "Lines awaiting construction" section hasn't been updated in a while. Look at the Yangfang line.

very interesting Beijing's subway will be huge. Where exactly is the Pinggu Line planned to go? Also why the hell does the yangfang line have a forced transfer with the fangshan line. I know Beijing loves separating its urban lines from its suburban lines but is there really a need for suburban lineception?

That's really cool and fast! But i wonder, why the southern part of Beijing is so neglected by metro? Comparing to the other parts of the city, it has really poor service.

Northern Beijing is more developed than Southern Beijing. Beijing's economic center is north of its geographic center (Tian'anmen). For example people can see more activity and better infrastructure on North 4th Ring than Southern 3rd Ring.

that couple of stations on dotted line are still question marks. It might not be finished by this year. Let's wait and see.

I really hope the line 8 section in question gets completed on time. Line 6 is possibly the most important relief corridor ATM. It needs those connections to be fully utilized or everyone will just pile on to the congested line 2.
