Rail-subway Line 22 to get first try

THE city's first railway-turned subway, Metro Line 22, will get its first test runs by the end of this month.

Fares are expected to be set at 7-10 yuan (US$1.1-1.6), based on prices of current bus services in the area. Fare details and timetables are yet to be disclosed, officials said, but the line is expected to go into public use in October.

The subway, linking downtown to suburban Jinshan District in the south, will have two services - non-stop and one with stations. It will be the first Metro line in Jinshan and is expected to carry 5,000 passengers a day into initial service.

Line 22, also known as the Jinshan Railway Line, stretches from Shanghai South Railway Station to Jinshan New Town at the city's south end.

The non-stop model will take half an hour along the route while the slower one will have nine stops and take about 45 minutes. The current bus lines take more than an hour to reach downtown from Jinshan.
