    Please note that Line 7 is under trail operation. That’s why the last train stop so early at 4pm..

    I have dragged it from yuntai rd to dongming rd, but I found that the suggested route is totally a disaster

    Hi Shaw,

    Thanks for the bug report! There was an error in the routeplanner which is now fixed. Dragging from Yuntai Road to Dongming Road should now give a much more sensible route!

    Hi team,
    I know, it’s a piece of cake, but still:
    Could you update the pdf file with the line 7 as well?
    As long as father christmas did not bring the iphone, I use the pdf when offline some times.
    Thanks and happy 2010 for all of you.

    Another question:
    Could you post a list of your best guesses, when all lines will be open?
    I live in Xujing and long for the day to have line 2 in front of my door…

    Hi Stefan,

    Will update the PDF version in the next week 🙂

    Best guesses for the other lines:
    Line 9 extension, Line 11: late December.
    Line 13, Line 10, Line 2 extensions, Line 7 extensions: before May!

    Sorry can’t be much more exact yet!

    Hi Matt,
    thank you very much for your updates, for continuing working on your great site! I like it very much.
    Just want to know, if there are any news, how long the Line 7’s trial operation would be last? Do you have any information for this issue?
    Thank you in advance, and Happy New Year! Wish the site will be more popular and well-known next year!

    The opening times will be gradually extended between now and May. I dont have exact dates though, I’m afraid.
