ExploreBeijing beta launches … plus a new look for ExploreShanghai

Two big announcements today!

The Shanghai metro map has been redesigned based on your feedback. It now uses clearer fonts and colors, there’s a handy legend for identifying which line is which, and route-planning has been made more intuitive. To plot a route, just drag between two stations, and a grey arrow will preview which stations you are connecting.

Secondly, I’m pleased to announce the first “beta” version of the ExploreBeijing subway map at www.explorebj.com. You can use the “other cities” link in the top tabs to switch city. The ExploreBeijing map isn’t yet complete, notably:

  • No first train/last train data for the new lines 8, 10 and Airport Express (which open later this month)
  • No route-planning yet… coming soon!
  • No station pronounciations yet… coming soon!
