Shanghai Metro

The Shanghai Metro is the urban rapid transit system of China's largest city, Shanghai. The system incorporates both subway (地铁) and light metro (轻轨) lines. It opened in 1995, making Shanghai the third city in Mainland China, after Beijing and Tianjin, to have a rapid transit system. Since then, the Shanghai Metro has become one of the fastest-growing rapid transit systems in the world.

As of 2012, there are 11 metro lines (excluding the Shanghai Maglev Train and Line 22), 278 stations and combined operating route length of over 434 kilometres (270 mi), the longest network in the world. The Shanghai Metro delivered 2.101 billion rides in 2011, the fifth busiest in the world. It set a daily ridership record of 7.548 million on October 22, 2010. The system continues to grow, with new lines and extensions of old lines currently under construction.
