Shanghai Metro Pujiang Line to open

UPDATE: Looks like we jumped the gun and this line won’t open until early 2018. See our updated blog post for more details

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 Pujiang Line in Shanghai. It’s an unusual line – an automated, driverless rubber-tyred metro line or “automated people mover”, more commonly used to shuttle passengers between airport terminals.

It was originally planned as a southern extension to Line 8, now it is a separate line passengers will transfer to Line 8 at Shendu Highway station.

Updates to our metro maps online, for Android and for iOS are rolling out by the end of the year.
