Guiyang, the capital of Southwest China's Guizhou province, will build a multi-level public transport network featuring "rail transit as the main body and conventional public transport as the basis" during the 14th Five-Year Plan (2021-25) period, according to information from the city's transportation committee on Feb 3.
In the next five years, the city will continuously improve the public transport service system. It will build a multi-level public transport system with urban rail transit, urban fast rail and BRT as the backbone, and conventional public transport as the basis. Authorities will also promote high-quality public transport in rural areas to enhance convenience for rural people.
Specifically, Guiyang will fully complete the construction of Guiyang's rapid rail network project.
The city will speed up the construction of Metro Line 2 (phase I and II), Metro Line 3 (phase I) and Line S1 (phase I), and start construction of Metro Line S2 (north section of phase I), Tram Line T1, T2, T5 and T7. The city will also carry out the preliminary study of the construction planning for Metro Line 4, Line S1 (phase II), Line S2 (south section of phase I, phase II), Line S3 and Line S4.
The links and transfers between rail transit and conventional public transport, BRT and passenger transport will also be improved.
Construction of public transport stations will be accelerated to improve services for passengers, according to the committee.
