5th ring back in the old days was pretty much farmland. People lived in more concentrated cities and there were far fewer migrants than the millions in town today. They got around more or less fine with buses.

Pictures of Line Changping Line Phase 2 testing:

I am worried for Line 13 and Xi'erqi Station as the opening will definitely bring a flood of people down the Changping Line. In 2011 the Changping Line carried 27 million people annually with trains every 10 mins. In 2014, it carried 57 million people with trains every 6 mins. With the extension the frequency will be further reduced to every 4 mins. I can easily see the line carrying 100 million people per year by 2020.

always the same - the Airport rail is not a subway system to be counted to the total net, because it haves no service for the city - only a connection City - Airpot with 1 intermediate station! (and a second one is u.c.) it is just used to push up the total lenght of the net!

so the airport rail have nothing to do in the total counting of the subeay system and by that it is in face 524 km.

Great, finally my university has a metro station now. I still remember when the construction works started, should be somewhere early 2012. Too bad I'm not there anymore though.

About Line 1: There has been some consideration some time ago to introduce seven-car trains to Line 1 in order to solve that line's severe overcapacity problems. The section from Pingguoyuan to Nanlishilu can only be able to accommodate six-car trains. The section from Fuxingmen to Sihui East has platforms long enough to accommodate eight-car trains. It should be noted that extending underground railway stations just to accommodate longer trains can be really expensive.

Not a cheaper solution, but the western end of 1 is less busy, and likely be even less so with western extension of 6. There could have been a short western branch after Fuxingmen terminating in Lize, with connection to 7 and 14. Disadvantage would be less trains towards Pingguoyuan.

Now that 14 has been extended to become a useful line in the south and east, is there any relief to line 10, or is it just as crowded as before?

Ridership of Line 10 is about the same. However ridership of Line 7 shot up and Line 14 East now hovers @ 400,000 riders per workday. Also Line 5 seems have a more balanced ridership now that Lines 14 and 15 are hooked up to it pulling over 1 million riders per workday.

Ultra-Fast EV Charging Station Now Up & Running In Beijing

A new ultra-fast electric vehicle charging station, the largest such station in the world, was recently brought online in Beijing, China.

The new station — the new Xiaoying Public Transit Bus Terminal in Chaoyang district — is home to 25 electric vehicle (EV) chargers operating at 360 kilowatts (kW), and 5 chargers operating at 90 kW. And it is indeed possible for all 30 chargers to operate at once, reportedly. The station covers an area of 26,500 m² — with the structures themselves covering an area of 1,575 m².

Beijing just converted two more diesel bus routes to trolley-buses in December and January, BRT1 and route 6.

Plans for any more trolley conversions? I would love to see Chinese cities reintroduce all the trolley buses they removed. It would certainly would help with the localized urban pollution.

To a certain extent. The power plants are within polluting distance of Beijing, but at least they won't pollute inside Beijing, like the diesel buses would.

Hence, why I said localized.
