Based on the fact that it's only a temporary sticker on the map, it appears that it won't last long. Nor, it seems, will the virtual interchanges at Yishan Road (3/9 with 4), Shanghai Railway Station (3/4 with 1), and Hongkou Football Stadium (3 with 8), as they are all using temporary stickers on the new maps that are now showing up on the trains.

Line 9 opened today!!!! I rode from Xujiahui to Century Avenue. The Xujiahui is very nice although the tunnel for the transfer is not finished. Zhaojiabang road is very nice and it is very convenient to transfer to line 7, Madang road is wierd as there is only one escalator to transfer to line 13, Lujiaban road is also designed nicely with wide corridors and short distances between platforms. Century Ave, is also nice but very packed now that there are 4 lines going through it. Overall good job Shanghai! Ill give it a B+

If only they could build other metros that fast

And just 2 years after that, those stats are already way outdated. In the mean time, the network has grown another 100 kms and boasts 10 lines.

Mind boggling.

by the end of 2009 the network had reached a total length of 330 km, with 221 stations and 10 lines! (Not including the Maglev line...)

Average daily ridership : 3.58 million (2009) (Highest: 5.27 million 2009.12.31)
It's amazing that the ridership increases so fast!

Average daily ridership was 3.06 million a year ago, so it has risen almost 20% in just one year.

Do these record count the elder people riding the subway everyday? From what i know, they do not go through the electrical gates, but someone manually let them in from somewhere else.

^It should. They've got gates at every station (they are marked in purple so they're pretty obvious) that are able to read the 老人卡 (old person's card) so they don't need to be manually let in anymore.

One of the 'regrets' I have for the Shanghai Metro is that they didn't opt for high capacity 3.2m wide rolling stock on lines 1 and 2.

SHANGHAI | Translohr

The construction of Shanghai Translohr tram way was completed in early 2009. The system then went on a seemingly endless road test for more than half a year, nobody knew exactly when it would start revenue operation. I was in Shanghai for a month from December 2009 to January 2010, I didn't give any hope that I could still ride the Translohr tram during my stay in Shanghai, I would be contended to take photos of empty cars conducting road tests.





























Next photo is the location where I took the above photos. The Translohr tram way is constructed in the township of Zhangjiang which is in the heartland area of Pudong. Nowadays Zhangjiang is readily accessible from downtown Shanghai since it is linked by Metro Line 2.

Longitudinal streets in Zhangjiang are named after foreingn scientists such as Charles Darwin, Marie Currie, Issac Newton, in this case Daerwen (Charles Darwin) Road; and latitudinal streets are named after ancient Chinese scientists, in this case Huatuo, a herblist/accupuncturist/surgeon/anethesiologist.



But on the morming of December 30th, 2009, while listening to radio news on AM channel 990, I suddenly heard the breaking news that Translohr tram was to start revenue service on the following morning. Since AM 990 was the municipal government radio station, this was the official announcement of the exact date of service operation of the long anticipated tram line, and I was absolutely thrilled by the news.

It was not until Friday, January 8th, the day before my daparture from Shanghai back to Edmonton, when I finally had a chance to ride the cutting edge tram. The ridership was OK given the service was only inaugurated one week ago. The speed limit was 40km/hr, but it was a very smooth ride, smoother than the shoddy Sunwin trolley-bus. To open the door, one would have to press the green door button to activate the door, and each tram was crewed by one conductor whose responsibitlity was to supervisor the fare payment, and a driver. I gradually realized that in a place as vastly open as Shanghai, Zhangjiang High Tech was the place best suited for the Translohr. Here it was not far from downtown Shanghai and linked by an existing subway line, traffic was relatively light to cause conflict with the tram way, and with the establishment of industrial park, provided a steady flow of ridership. After the ride, I gave a sincere well wish to this rubber tire tram system for her eventual success and very bright future.

I have attached a set of photos of Subway Line 5 from my recent trip to Shanghai. The Minhang Development Zone Station is the terminal station of the line. Since the entire Line 5 is elevated except at the beginning of the line (Xinzhuang 莘庄), I choose to photograph Minhang station to show the abrupt ending of the via-duct that supports this urban rail system. The via-duct extended 150 meters beyond the station to allow the installation of a pair of scissor crossing tracks for trains to switch track and head back to the city. The station is located at the intersection of Dongchuan Road(东川路)/Tianxing Road(天星路), which is in a rather desolated area where vegetable field is gradually being converted to industrial use land.











The next set was taken from an intermediate station, the Dongchuan Road (东川路) Station which is located at the intersection of Humin Road (沪闵路) and Dongchuan Road (东川路). This station is located just north of a curvature segment, therefore it exposes an approaching train negotiating the curvature from far to near.







Another station at Zhuanqiao (颛桥), photographed from a pedestrian overpass.







The Line 5 garage.

Nice pictures. The running way should have been built all concrete. The asphalt is going to wear out really quick.

Translohr is more a guided bus than a tram.

According to law it seems to be a bus – it has a numberplate.

P. S.: German wikipedia calls it a "guided trolley bus".

I haven't anything good about this systems. There have been numerous derailments in systems installed in Italy.
