The S8 metro line in Nanjing heralds a new era in the ancient capital, setting new records as the longest and fastest urban rail transit in China.


With the recent opening of Nanjing’s S8 metro line, a complex subway network now covers the entire historic city. Spanning 45 kilometers and 17 stations and trains at a maximum speed of 120 kilometers per hour, the line is the longest and fastest in China. Flying through the city like an orange dragon, it winds a scenic route from Taishanxincun Station to Jinniu Lake.
