Today I've managed to ride on lines 11, 12 and 16. Lots of impressions and pictures. Later.

I was surprised to see 20-minute headways on line 16.

By the way, the price of one-day ticket still remains as 18 yuan.

It's starting to change now. Line 16's weekend headway will be reduced to 10-minute from this Saturday on.

In a Russian forum dedicated to metros we started discussing an interesting issue. The number of escalators per a metro system in the world. Some say Moscow has the largest number of them, but I think it might be Shanghai to hold the first place in the world.

Is there any info on the number of escalators throughout the whole system?

So what made you decide to stop and start talking about escalators?

In Moscow they are needed, not in Shanghai. I'm sure most shaghainese would wait longer for the escalator than it takes to walk the stairs.

Most Shanghai metro stations only have one way (up) escalators, so I'm not sure how would it compare to other systems such as Tokyo.

As far as I can feel an average station may have up to 10 escalators in Shanghai.

I think the older lines (1, 2) have the up only escalators, while the new ones have at least 2 that travel both directions.

Anyways, a picture of a bus station off a line 8 station by me.

Only new and large stations have 10 or more escalators.

Some old data is available online: by July 2011 Shanghai metro had 1725 escalators.

Thanks David but do they count escalators that take passengers outdoors? They are part of station complexes, too!

I don't know how much one needs to be into metro to count how many escalators there are in a metro station

As for the century park station, there is only 1 that goes up from the platform I think.

Well, it is all about records

In fact on the official website of Moscow metro there is such information about escalators in Moscow metro as well as many other statistics.

Now I'm curious if there's a station in Shanghai with no escalator at all

When I was in Shanghai this time, I rode line 12 and decided to get off at International Cruise Terminal. I was wonder to discover that the station is nicely decorated: it has got starry night sky on the ceiling with constellations that represent all the 12 signs of Zodiac!

I uploaded my pic on Instagram and yesterday this photo was chosen by Zai_shanghai community on Instagram.

I'll upload this pic here later.

Sorry for off-topic about Moscow, but you can have all kinds of statisctics for 2012 here:

http://mosmetro.ru/about/general/numeral/

I wonder if those figures are somewhere available for Shanghai metro.

that's very detailed information. Shanghai metro's website shmetro.com only has time, elevator (not escalator) and toilet information for each station, in Chinese, it's English site has very few info.
