So, if you don’t have a car, how can you get around China? We’ll start with the subway system and travel to somewhere interesting, take a look at how it all works and how much it all costs.
The Shenzhen Metro (simplified Chinese: 深圳地铁; traditional Chinese: 深圳地鐵; pinyin: Shēnzhèn Dìtiě; Jyutping: sam1 zan3 dei6 tit3) is the subway or underground system for the city of Shenzhen in Guangdong province, China. The system opened on 28 December 2004, making Shenzhen the sixth city in mainland China to have a subway after Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai, Guangzhou and Wuhan. The Shenzhen Metro currently has eight lines, 166 stations, and 286 kilometres (178 miles) of total trackage in operation. The network underwent rapid expansion prior to the 2011 Summer Universiade, opening 110 km (68 mi) of tracks in June 2011. The system underwent another major expansion with the opening of Line 11 in June 2016 and both Lines 7 and 9 in October 2016 shortly making the system the third longest in China before Guangzhou Metro regained the position in December 2016. Two new lines and extension of several existing lines are underway with a long term goal of and 1,124 kilometres (698 miles) of lines by 2030. In February 2017, the government announced that work on four new metro lines (Lines 12,13, 14 and 16) would start in 2017 at a cost of 160 billion Yuan.
