The initial 13.9km section of the Songjiang network from Canghua Road to Zhongchen Road opened in December 2018. The completion of the second phase adds 12.9km to the network and takes the total number of stations to 40.
The 31km network will be completed in December with the opening of the remaining sections of Line T1. Ridership is forecast to reach 170,000 passengers per day when all phases are completed.
The system is operated and maintained by a joint venture of Shanghai Shentong Metro Group (51%) and Keolis’ Chinese joint venture, Shanghai Keolis (49%) under a five-year contract awarded in August 2018.
Services are operated by a fleet of 30 Silkworm vehicles, which are the first LRVs in China to be based on Alstom’s Citadis platform.
