In Shanghai as well as in many cities in China headways are quite long even during rush hours and may reach 5 min or 10 minutes during the day. So, on line 5 in your case headways would have to be over 20 minutes.

Speaking about new lines going through downtown, I can't understand why eh still count on 6-car trains? Yes, it's A-type but still it's too little for such dense city core. When I was in Hong kong I saw there 8-car sets, even 10-car sets not to mention the trains from Shenzhen, which are 12-car. It is much more effective to have longer trains than to build another line.

It seems to me lines 3, 4, 7, 9 should accommodate 8-car trains. Not sure about line 11. And line 8 should be able to accommodate 10-car trains as they are C-size.

I don't think tickets are so expensive considering that Shanghai can provide anyone with a job. However some people (just like here in Russia) prefer not to work but cheat.

I would roughly say 80%.

Actually, this issue does interest me, too, as well as I wish to know how many km of tracks are underground.

No numbers, but it should give a roughly indication.

No, it doesn't. It is just a scheme, with no info on the distances between stations.

Let's try to calculate together?

Okay, consider the people that live outside of the city-center (imagine what most of their incomes are considering that they don't live in Puxi). Now imagine commuting two ways, 5-6 days a week...that adds up, quick.

When I was studying, going between the main Fudan campus and Anting, I spent more than 500yuan a month on subway fare (once you calculate having to travel to other places and often going back and forth more than just twice a day)...My case isn't usual, but people should bear in mind that it's a huge city, and the people that are often traveling the farthest, live where they live because of economic reasons.

For those who travel often, 72-hour cards were introduced.

I got the news from metrofans. But the source is conflicting and confusing. Will update here till there are pictures or announcements.

Line 11 south extension will open on August 31 2013

The extension is 21 km long with 12 stations (From Jiangsu Rd Station to Luoshan Rd Station, 11 underground and 1 elevated), including 4 interchange stations. Line 11 will cross the Huangpu River and reach Pudong.

Shanghai metro will reach 462 km in total length and 300 stations. Line 11 will become the 6th metro line crossing the Huangpu River.

Congratulations! My lovely city can boast one more line.

I am particularly happy that Shanghai metro stations are decorated too, it is no longer just functionality and simplicity.

What about the rolling stock, how many trains were purchased to serve the extension? Still Siemens trains of the same model?

Several of the new stations have designs inspired by their locations: Longhua has a gold roof inspired by Longhua Temple while Jiaotong University Station has a literary theme, with artworks based on manuscripts belonging to scientist Qian Xuesen.



Luoshan Road, the new eastern terminus will be a interchange station with Line 16, anticipated to open at the end of this year. Line 16 will carry on further into Pudong, terminating near Dishui Lake.

We’ll have updates available soon for our iPhone, Android and online maps… stay tuned!

Big-dog, by the way, are there 12 new stations or 13? The line map says there are 13.



Seems like on some pictures trains are different from those "new" Siemens, they seem to be older.

it should be 12. Jiangsu Rd Station was already built and opened with Line 11 phase I. There is another station Yanyu Rd Station 严御路 (not on the map) between Pusan Rd and Yuqiao, reserved (not built yet) for future opening.

What is covered by 72-hour cards, and what is excluded (or needs to be paid extra)?
And what do 10 72-hour cards cost?
