The Shanghai Subway

Shanghai SubwaySubway is the most efficient way of traveling around Shanghai. It's fast, it's cheap and it's easy.

The Shanghai subway is one of the youngest in the world and might become the most rapidly expanding if the same pace of construction continues. After the first line opened in 1995 as a north-south axis from the Central Station to the southern suburbs, a first section of the second line followed only four years later.

The third line, the so-called Pearl Line, has been developed out of a former ring railway, mainly elevated, to run from Baoshan Steel Complex in the north via Shanghai Railway Station to Caoxi Rd. In the south (36 km, 21 stations). Construction of the first 25 km section with 19 stations (3 at grade) between Caoxi Rd and Jiangwan was completed in May 2000 and opened 26 Dec 2000 for trial operation. Regular service is scheduled to start in Aug. 2001. Until the fleet of 28 Alstom Megapolis 6-car trains arrives, trains borrowed from the other lines offer a limited service.

In Sept. 2001 number of trains was increased on all three lines, 17 trains serving on Line 1, 10 on Line 2 and 9 on the Pearl Line.
