Beijing Subway Xijiao line to open

We’re rounding out 2017 with a preview of the new lines expected to open in China before the end of the year. Typically new lines open in the last few days of December, and details about the exact timetables and station details are only announced on opening day.

Today we have a sneak preview of the new Xijiao Line in Beijing.

Formerly known as the Western Suburban Line, this will be a light rail line located in Haidian District. It will be convenient for tourists, with stops close to the Summer Palace, Botanical Gardens and Xiangshan (Fragrant Hills).
