Beijing's Subway (Metro) Art

Xijiao Line – 西郊线

Is it a train? Is it a tram? Actually it’s both.

The Xijiao Line opened at the end of 2017 to relieve some of the appalling traffic in the north western suburbs around Xiangshan and the Botanic Gardens.

Although you’ll be lucky ever to get a seat, at least you can rush past the rest of the stationary traffic notching up a maximum 30kph!

Unfortunately the first week of operations was marred by three breakdowns within the space of 24 hours. There is virtually no artwork whatsoever on this line, save for these glass screens...and every station along the route is virtually identical.
