Line 1, Beijing Subway - Route


Line 1's western terminus is Pingguoyuan, located in the Western Hills of Shijingshan District. The line heads southeast to its second stop at Gucheng Lu and from there runs straight east, following Chang'an Avenue all the way to its eastern terminus, Sihui East in Chaoyang District, just beyond the 4th Ring Road. The line passes through Xidan, Wangfujing and Dongdan, among other important commercial centers of Xicheng and Dongcheng Districts, as well as the Beijing CBD near the China World Trade Center. Line 1 intersects twice with the Line 2 loop, at Fuxingmen and Jian'guomen and once with Line 5 at Dongdan. From Sihui and Sihui East, passengers can transfer to Batong Line which runs further east, to Tongzhou District. The line's total operational length is 30.4 km. It has 23 stations in operation; all except for Sihui and Sihui East are underground.

Famous quotes containing the word route:

    In the mountains the shortest route is from peak to peak, but for that you must have long legs. Aphorisms should be peaks: and those to whom they are spoken should be big and tall of stature.
    Friedrich Nietzsche (1844–1900)

    But however the forms of family life have changed and the number expanded, the role of the family has remained constant and it continues to be the major institution through which children pass en route to adulthood.
    Bernice Weissbourd (20th century)

    By a route obscure and lonely,
    Haunted by ill angels only,
    Where an eidolon, named Night,
    On a black throne reigns upright,
    I have reached these lands but newly
    From an ultimate dim Thule—
    From a wild weird clime that lieth, sublime,
    Out of space—out of time.
    Edgar Allan Poe (1809–1849)
