When I saw that spinning globe (which is also my avatar) I though "What is possible that I posted on this thread when I never posted?"

BTW, that map doesn't show the GuangFo line (Although for me is line 1 of Foshan metro). And I like the mid-term plans of Chinese metros. I only have seen one map of the plans for Guangzhou metro, but lots of Shanghai subway ones...

Guangzhou metro on Google Earth. Notice that the city's name hides part of line 5:

Is line number 3, to New Baiyun, running?

I see that Guangzhou North, on Guangzhou-Wuhan high-speed railway, is near New Baiyun. But is there a convenient connection?

Line 3 needs to be split up in to two distinct lines. So confusing for the customer.

hahaha, some people thought they can travel from Panyu Sq to GZ East in one train. NOT.

However, in the future the Tiyuxilu to Tianhe Coach Terminal will become Line 10.

Line 3 to New Baiyun Airport opens October 30.

There will be a convenient connection in 2012-13, when Line 9 opens, which requires a 1 stop transfer at Gaozeng.

This was a bit old, but since no one posted the big news I'll just do it

A daily ridership record of 5.133 million was set on National Day (Oct. 1st)

There are three lines with 1 million+ ridership:
Line 1: 1.2395 m
Line 2: 1.1495 m
Line 3: 1.0522 m

Very impressive! I am expecting to see an even larger number during the Asian Games.(more new lines+more visitors). oh wait, since the public transportaion will be free during that period, will they still count ridership then?

I was in Guangzhou in July and I was very impressed by the subway system. One question, though; where does line 3 go exactly? The final stop says "Airport S." but when I asked if that meant "Baiyun International", the guy said no and I had to take a bus.

So what is this airport, where is it and when is there gonna be a subway to Baiyun? It's quite confusing.

Could it be the former Baiyun International Airport which is being redeveloped? It is south of the new Baiyun International Airport.

To clarify, Airport S. (South) is a new station of Line 3 that will open on October 30. It will open is part of the north extension of Line 3 from Guangzhou East Station.

Airport S. --> This is where the NEW (EXISTING) Baiyun Airport is located in.

Line 3 will be extended to Airport NORTH Station in the future when the new expansion phase of Baiyun Airport opens, consisting of a new terminal (By then Airport S. is the Terminal 1 of the Airport, Airport N. is the Terminal 2).

Thus, this explains why the guy told you to take the bus because that Line 3 extension was not open back in July. The only method to go to the airport back then and up until the new opening of line 3 extension is either by Airport BUS, taxi, car. Though, Airport S. does mean Baiyun International (becuase it is lol) but I guess the reason he said "no" was b/c the English and Chinese name of the station was called and named Airport S. (south) --> very broad and not specific.
It should of been renamed to Baiyun Int' Airport South or New Baiyun Airport S. instead to avoid confusion.

The former Old Airport (also called Baiyun) is located in the areas of Feixiang Park Station and Baiyun Park Station area. These 2 stations were opened just last month as part of the new Line 2 North Extension.
The old airport is being redeveloped into a mall and some residential areas... and yes, the Old airport is south of the New one.

hope this helpss....

confusing, but I understand. ...

I think instead of Airport South, they should just call it "Airport" station until the new terminal is built - THEN call it Airport South or Terminal 1 or whatever. As of now, there is only 1 terminal right? and there is only 1 station right? And it will open on Oct 30.

so a simpler way would be just call it Airport station.
