Jimei Bridge in Xiamen
   
A new BRT interchange station is expected to be built on the south end of the Jimei Bridge in the near future, according to reports.

With a total investment of RMB 548.6 million, the new BRT station will cover 24,316 square meters. Upon its completion, there will be 66 bus parking spaces in the station. In addition, there will also be 210 underground car parking spaces.

Aiming to provide easy access to public transportation for urban residents, the Xiamen Bus Rapid Transport (BRT) was opened on August 31, 2008. As the first elevated BRT system in China, the Xiamen BRT was constructed as an overhead viaduct that crosses the downtown area. It has no traffic lights along the entire line to ensure a smooth and prompt passage.
