This week we’re previewing several new lines and extensions which opened at the end of December 2014. Today, Beijing Subway Line 6. Line 6 opened two years ago providing relief for the overcrowded Line 1. In December 2014 it was extended eastwards to a new terminal station at Lucheng.
Two stations did not open with the rest of the line, and will open later (Tongyunmen and Beiyunhe East). The open stations are:
- Wuzixueyuan Lu
- Tongzhou Beiguan
- Beiyunhe West
The Beijing Subway has also replaced the old flat 2 RMB fare structure with a new distance-based fare structure, with prices varying between 3 RMB and 9 RMB. For example, a journey from Wuzixueyuan Lu to Lucheng will cost 4 RMB.
