According to the Xiamen Urban Rail Transit Construction Plan (2011-2020) approved by the National Development and Reform Committee (NDRC), Xiamen will complete the construction of 3 urban rail transit lines by 2020 and will use the B-type metro vehicle, reported Xiamen Daily Thursday.

With a total length of 75.3 kilometers, the 3 urban rail transit lines will connect Xiamen Island and its mainland districts and form the backbone of Xiamen’s urban rail transit system.

They are expected to greatly improve the cross-sea transport capacity between Xiamen Island and its mainland districts and strengthen district integration.

The first 3 urban rail transit lines will use the B-type metro vehicle, which has been adopted in 70% of the Chinese cities that have metro lines.
