China's Metro System



English information
"From 2009 to 2015, China plans to build 87 mass transit rail lines, totaling 2,495 km, in 25 cities at the cost of ¥988.6 billion. If current trends continue towards 2050, Chinese cities will have 11,700 km of metro lines, accounting for at least half the world's metro length. Of the new metro systems to be built between now and 2015, 16% will be in the Pearl River Delta, 25% in the Yangtze River Delta and 24% in the Bohai region. As of 2012, China averages 270 km of new rapid transit mileage per year. Hong Kong’s MTR was developed autonomously by the Hong Kong S.A.R. Government. The MTR now has investment and management stakes in the rapid transit systems of several mainland Chinese cities." source: wikipedia
