Shanghai Transportation Statistics

In our search for an apartment we have seen about the whole centre of Shanghai. Most of them huge buildings. Close by transport, especially the subway, is one of the key factors in deciding where we want to live next left. Many new developments mention that ’soon’ a subway line nearby will be ready.

‘Soon’ maybe up for interpretation but it’s a fact that Shanghai is extending the metro lines with great effort.

Some Transportation Statistics from Shanghai

  • Metro lines (including those under construction) - 18
  • People using the Shanghai subway system daily - 2.500.000 - 3.000.000
  • Public bus lines - more than 950
  • People taking the bus daily - 7.800.000
  • People using ferries daily - 420.000
  • Private cars in Shanghai (2005)- 322.000 (it feels like there are more though)
