Guangzhou Metro is the metro system of the city of Guangzhou in Guangdong Province of China. It was the fourth metro system to be built in mainland China, after those of Beijing, Tianjin and Shanghai.
Having delivered 2.054 billion rides in 2013, Guangzhou Metro is the sixth busiest metro system in the world, after the metro systems of Tokyo, Seoul, Moscow, Beijing, and Shanghai and operates 164 stations.
The city, in the south of one of the world’s most populous countries, was initially planned to have a two-line metro system, which uses some of the latest light-rail technology, and was a model for a completely integrated project.
The number of lines was, however, increased later. The metro now operates eight lines, with an additional six lines underway.
Guangzhou Metro is now undergoing an expansion project increasing the metro by 16 lines with a length of 432.6km by 2025 in order to connect their rising areas. It is estimated that the total investment will reach 297.6 billion yuan.
