I start the tour of newly opened lines, many of them opened today, it sounds like a prank (and more so since it's pranks day in Spain, our version of April Fools) but it's a tradition in China.

So, Guangzhou has opened three new lines and an extension, as well as two infill stations.:
Line 4 South, Jinyun to Nansha Keyungang, adding 6 stations and 13.6 km for a total length of 60 km, making it the second longest line. In addition Qingsheng station, located between Huangge Qichecheng and Dongchong, has been put into operation 11 years after the first train passed through the area, so now 23 stations are in operation. Only Guanqiao, between Shiqi and Xinzao, is missing (11 years and counting).
Line 9, Gaozeng to Fei'eling, 19.2 km, 10 stations (Qingtang unopened for now). I remember it was planned to open in 2012, 5 years ago! In addition, Gaozeng station on line 3, between Renhe and Jichang Nan (Airport South), is now in operation, so now line 3 has 29 stations. Its length hasn't changed, though.
1st phase of line 13, Yuzhu to Xinsha, 25.6 km, 11 stations. Confined to the Eastern suburbs for now, ultimately this line will cross the city to Chaoyang.
Knowledge City Line (a.k.a. Line 14 branch), Xinhe to Zhenglong, 10 stations, 20 km. Isolated for now from the rest of the metro (and by far!), it's also a branch without a mainline.

With the new additions, Guangzhou is now back ahead of the nearby "town" (Shenzhen), and it's now the 4th or 5th (depending on how one counts the Guangzhou-Foshan line, I count it as Foshan so 5th) longest metro in the world behind Beijing, Shanghai, London and (if the Guangfo line is counted as Foshan all the way) New York City, at 364.5 km (again, Guangfo line not included, if included then the length is 390 km).

As for the Guangfo line, 17.4 km of tracks and 10 stations are located in Guangzhou. Therefore, the correct length of Guangzhou Metro system by 2017-12-28 is 375.2 km.

-------------------

By the end of 2018, the line 14 phase 1, the line 21 and the Guangfo Line (from Yan Gang to Lijiao) expected to open.

The Guangzhou–Foshan Section of Pearl River Delta Region Intercity Rapid Transit (Chinese: 珠江三角洲地区城际快速轨道交通广州至佛山段) is an intercity metro line that connects Guangzhou and Foshan. It is commonly known as Guangfo Metro and Guangfo Line of Guangzhou Metro. The section within Foshan also doubles as Line 1 of FMetro (Foshan Metro). The line is operated by Guangdong Guangfo Inter-City Co., Ltd., a subsidiary co-owned by Guangzhou Metro (51%) and Foshan Metro (49%).[48][49] Its first section, from Xilang to Kuiqi Lu in Foshan, started operation on 3 November 2010 with 21 km of tracks and 14 stations.[15][45] Eleven of the stations are located in Foshan, while the other three are in Guangzhou.[45] Relocation disputes at Lijiao were not resolved until October 2013 and have delayed completion of the extension from Xilang to Lijiao till December 2015.[50] When the line is completed, it will have 32.2 km of tracks and 21 stations, of which 17.4 km of tracks and 10 stations will be located in Guangzhou.[49] The line will interchange with Line 1 at Xilang, Line 2 at Nanzhou, Line 3 at Lijiao, and Line 8 at Shayuan. It will run four-car trains.[49] All its stations are underground.[51]

What are you trying to say me that I don't know already? Anyway, I don't leave out the 7 km of Shanghai's line 11 between Anting and Huaqiao from the (soon to be) 654 km total simply because they lie outside Shanghai. I have to assign the Guangzhou-Foshan line to either Guangzhou or Foshan, and since it's also known as Foshan line 1 I count all of it as Foshan.

Who cares what the name is. Most publications include it with Guangzhou's length and it is, for all intents and purposes, a part of the greater metro network. Someone is clearly over-complicating things for no apparent reason other than pure pedantic semantics.

Well Foshan has FM Line 2, FM Line 3 and Nanhai New Transit under construction (Note I removed the Guangzhou Line 7 Western Extension into Shunde because it says Guangzhou #semantics). In addition FM Line 11 is on the verge of starting construction. It will be a southwestern radial line to Ronggui and beyond that terminates at one of the stations of GZ Line 11 (loop line) like Guangzhou Lines 14 and 21.

December 31 2017, Guangzhou Metro daily passenger ridership reached 10 millions at the first time !

Which means that the attractiveness of Guangzhou city is enhanced. This is a powerful manifestation of Guangzhou's vitality, potential and cohesion as an important national center in Guangzhou. It is also a major achievement of Guangzhou's emphasis on people's livelihood and investment in people's livelihood infrastructure. In recent years, the Guangzhou municipal government has stepped up its investment in public transport construction and endeavored to let citizens travel for their first choice of public transport, especially for larger and greener rail transport.

It is estimated that by 2019, the total mileage of the Guangzhou metro will exceed 500 km, covering 11 districts of the city.


It is estimated that by 2023, Guangzhou metro will form a network with a total length of about 800 km

What is meant by the difference between underground line and the tunnel?

Is the line 5 extension to Huangpu Ferry terminal, and the corresponding Dongguan line 1 still on, or is that being scaled back?

That's the one that in principle would allow someone so inclined to take metro Foshan-Guangzhou-Dongguan-Shenzhen (and further to Hong Kong, if you ignore the customs walk between Shenzhen and Hong Kong).
