Metro officials opt for the long haul
5 July 2007
Shanghai Daily

Bigger, it seems, is better when it comes to the city's overtaxed Metro Line 1.

Commuters can expect less-crowded trains on the busiest line thanks to increased carriage numbers that are being phased in over the course of the year.

The Shanghai Metro Co Ltd said 18 eight-carriage trains will be running on Line 1, improving capacity by up to 23 percent. Eight-carriage trains can carry 800 more passengers than the traditional six-carriage variety.

The first eight-carriage train, purchased from German manufacturer Alstrom, hit Line 1 in late January.

The Metro company ordered 16 eight-car trains from Alstrom. Eight of these completed extensive testing before beginning service.

And six-car trains are being revamped to add two extra carriages.

Metro officials said they recently completed tests on older Line 1 trains with the added carriages.

The first one was put into service yesterday, increasing the number of eight-car trains on the line from eight to nine.

The nine extra-capacity trains will help carry eight percent more passengers during morning rush hours, the Metro authority said.

There will be 18 eight-car trains running on Metro Line 1 before the end of the year, 14 of them new and four revamped.

By then, Metro Line 1 will be able to handle up to 23 percent more commuters during rush hours, according to Metro operators.

About 1.1 million daily commuters use Metro Line 1, which runs north and south.

Nice pictures. The Shanghai subway looks so clean compared to others that I've seen.
The Maglev is brilliant.

Its not ad free. Some cars have a lot of ads on them outside and inside. And if you notice the adfree like train in one of the pic theres LCD screens next to the doors so theres your ad.

The editor can't even bother to do a simple search on google to determine if:
1. Alstrom or ALSTOM
2. French or german?

But great choice of alstom trains though. They are reliable and good looking.

Yes but in Singapore they are a little bit slow to open the door after arriving at a station. Much slower than on Paris line 14 where there are Alstom driverless trains also. Are they driverless in Nankin and Shanghai?
