I like how in that map line 1 stops in Xilang and then again in Xilang, but this time finishing and with transfer to line 1 of FMetro (I don't like the GuangFo name).

In China they usually have the first spelling in each name and combine it. Like BeiShang (Beijing&Shanghai), XiaShen (Xiamen&Shenzhen).

Note how reaching New Baiyun from CRH takes 2 metro trips:
Line 2 for some reason terminates at Jiahe Wanggang and it is necessary to connect to line 3
Line 9 shall also terminate at Gaozeng and connecting to line 3 shall be needed.

Is Foshan metro is separate? or an extension of Guangzhou metro? Please clear my confusion & write details.
Just want to point out that Shenzhen is it's own separate HUGE city and not a suburb of Hong Kong. It even has it's own international airport.

Shenzhen is a great city to visit in my opinion.

Yes, although Shenzhen owes its very existence to Hong Kong and is inextricably linked to it, it is its own separate city, not a suburb.

Do passengers have to change to a different train when they transfer from the Guangzhou Metro to FMetro? The map above confuses me because I thought the "GuangFo" line started at Xilang, not Lijiao which is in Guangzhou(obviously not in Foshan).

Edit:

A better question is why would the Foshan Metro run into Guangzhou? Maybe it's like how the Hong Kong MTR operates the Shenzhen Longhua line.

AFAIK Xilang-Lijiao section of the Line 1 of FMetro is not opened yet (Funnily enough, despite being part of Foshan metro that section is entirely in Guangzhou). I've read it's operated in a joint venture between Guangzhou metro and FMetro.

Thanks for the explanation. It looks like the PRD will have the most massive integrated subway network in the future. From Hong Kong up to Guangzhou down to Macau.


Edit(so not to double post)

It seems like it will take a long time to get from Guangzhou South station and from the Airport to the city center, are there any future plans to add express lines for these destinations? It will be a shame to take 36 minutes to get from Shenzhen Futian to GZ South just take the same amount of time to get to the city center.

What is the "High-tech city line"? Its first mention on the world wide web is right here on the SSC Guangzhou subway forum.

This is great news. Is there a map of these new lines? Also when do they expect to have the lines completed and running?

Thanks Myouzke, the map looks great. It will cover a lot more of Guangzhou definitely. It looks very well planned out.

The KC line looks interesting. I have to look up more about what Knowledge City is.

Actually Guangfo line was planned as the first intercity subway line in China by the Ministry of Railway, and the line is jointly operated by Guangzhou Metro and FMetro. Trains would run through the whole line.

The line current ends at Xilang, but will be extended to Lijiao (interchange with Guangzhou Line 3) next year.

It's a joint development plan between PRC and Singapore. The full name of Knowledge City is "中新知識城", which means Sino-Singapore Knowledge City.
