Preview concludes for subway Line One
The first ten stops of Line One of Xiamen's new subway system are open through the end of today for a public preview. The stations included in the preview are Zhenhai Lu, Hubin Dong Lu, Lianban, Tangbian, Gaoqi, Jimei College Village, Xingjin Lu, Yuanboyuan, Xiamen North Railway Station and Yannei stations.
Servicing the trial run are four six-carriage trains, with each carriage boasting a unique design. The themed cars celebrate the upcoming Communist Party Congress, the recent BRICS Summit, the current Mid-Autumn Festival and Gulangyu.
Activities surrounding the public preview include mooncake games and group dances.
Xiamen's pace of subway construction is one of the most rapid in China. Work continues on Lines Two, Three and Four and construction is scheduled to begin soon on Line Six.
