April 7th: Xujiahui interchange and Middle Yanggao Road to open

Two pieces of good news for Line 9 riders in Shanghai: on April 7th the interchange passageway at Xujiahui station between Line 9 and Line 1 will open: previously interchanging involved having to exit one station, walk along a busy road above ground and re-enter the other station. Now a passageway will directly connect the two stations, cutting interchange times by several minutes.

Additionally, Line 9 will be extended by one stop in Pudong, from Century Avenue to a new eastern terminus at Middle Yanggao Road.

As usual, both and our Explore Shanghai iPhone app will be updated with the new station and interchange times shortly!

We’re proud to announce the launch of the fifth ExploreMetro iPhone app – the Explore Singapore MRT map!

We think Explore Singapore is the best Singapore MRT app for iPhone and iPod touch. The app is fully up to date with the latest information, and we’ll be providing free updates for the Circle Line extension in April.
