A huge fan of China’s plans to install metro lines across more then 30 cities, I was happy to stumble across this clip covering BEijing’s plans for its public transport network.

Overacting aside, it was really good to see that some of the plans I was hearing about while living there were now in service, and it would be good to hear from anyone in Beijing as to how the new lines are doing.

After all, while the new lines in Shanghai¬† are a great step (9 lines in total now), it feels like the number of riders has tripled… it is simple stacked

Oh – the clip is 30 minutes long, so probably best to get some popcorn.
