Line 4 Opens in Nanjing

As promised in our launch post, this week Nanjing Metro has opened its Line 4 to the public, bringing the total lines number to eight.

A small reminder: just two years ago Nanjing Metro only had two lines.

The new line, also known as the Purple line (named after Nanjing’s Purple Mountain), adds 33.5 km (20.8 mi) and 15 new stations to the network, reaching now 259.9 km.

The line connects, from left to right, with Line 1 at Gulou station, Line 3 at Jimingsi station, and Line 2 at Jinmalu station.

A new Nanjing Metro update with the new line will be available soon on the App Store, as always, free of charge.
