Global Times – Metro Shanghai - - PULSE -

On Thurs­day morn­ing, a “green” sub­way train on Line 2 ap­peared at Beidi Road sta­tion, peo­ple.cn re­ported on Thurs­day. The train is equipped with USB charg­ing de­vices.

It marks the be­gin­ning of a new era of pub­lic trans­porta­tion in Shang­hai, with 5,000 trains cur­rently in use, the high­est num­ber in China. It has been 25 years since the Shang­hai metro was first put into oper­a­tion in 1993. Over the past 25 years, the sub­way has not only in­creased in quan­tity, but also qual­ity. Of note, all the car­riages are now do­mes­ti­cally made.

With the ex­pand­ing of the city’s tran­sit scale and the ris­ing de­mands of ur­ban pas­sen­gers, Shang­hai metro will con­tinue to cater to cit­i­zens’ de­mands by in­creas­ing the num­ber of trains, im­prov­ing op­er­a­tional ef­fi­ciency and ex­tend­ing ser­vice hours.
