The Fangshan Line is just under 25 km long and has 11 stations – two of which are underground.
On December 30, 2010, the line began operating from Suzhuang to Dabaotai, but was not connected to any other line until exactly a year later, when the Dabaotai to Guogongzhuang section opened, linking it with Line 9 and the rest of the subway network.
The Fangshan Line will be extended further north for 4.6 km to connect with Line 10 at Shoujingmao and with Line 16 at Fengyiqiao South.
