Here is a comprehensive video from Shanghai Metro Line 12:



You can observe the massive dwell time between closing the doors and starting to move the train.

Great video there. Long dwelling times have been discussed numerous times. It seems to be an issue in all cities in China.

How many trains have been added to lines 13 and 16 respectively? Do they plan to increase the number of cars in line 16 trains?

Shanghai Metro removed a bunch seats on Line 16 trains to boost capacity. In the face of large demand, pledged that it is working on getting the express service online and starting to convert from 3 car trains to 6 car trains.

That's impressive. How many Kms, stations and lines will there be in Shanghai in 2030?

Shanghai city centre tram plan revealed
Thursday, March 05, 2015



TRAMS are set to return to Shanghai city centre for the first time in more than 40 years as part of a three-year development plan for publically-owned land along the city's riverfront, which was unveiled by the municipal government on February 25

Construction is expected to begin in 2017 on the 13km line, which will run south along the west bank of the Huangpu River from an interchange with metro Line 4 at Nanpu Bridge to Xupu Bridge in Xuhai

The map that VECTROTALENZIS posted shows the metro systems of Shanghai, Kunshan and Suzhou and includes the China Rail Highspeed network.

The Shanghai Metro usually opens new stations on December 28th of any given year. 2014 was a bit of a disappointment. We only got six new stations throughout the whole year with no new lines. However, the importance of the extension of Line 16 to Longyang Rd cannot be understated. I was actually a little surprised that they finished that section last. The direct transfer to Line 2 is critical to the feasibility of Line 16. When it only had the transfer to Luoshan Rd, Line 16 was only efficient to reach the western half of Shanghai. Line 6 is very slow and cramped, and Oriental Sports Center is a nightmare for transferring.

Now that I see that 2030 map, I find a couple lines I had never seen before: A line 23 running west of line 17 20 and a different line 24 from the official plans (which also appears there) running near Lujiazui, as well as several extensions like that of line 9 to Jinshan Bei (i.e. North) Station or line 14 to Shanghai Qichecheng. Personally I think they should haven't built the Anting branch of line 11 and made line 14 to run all the way to Huaqiao instead.

This is a short video showing the switches in operation on the Shanghai Maglev. The video was taken in 2006 with an old camera. The switches are no longer used today in daily operation as they just run two trains back and forth. It is too bad.

Most of the cities in the world can only dream about 6 stations in a year.
