Line 14 (Shanghai Metro)

Line 14 of the Shanghai Metro is an east-west metro line opened on 30 December 2021.[1] The line, consisting of 31 stations, starts from Fengbang town in Jiading District, and terminate in Jinqiao town in Pudong New Area via Zhenru, Jing'an Temple, Dashijie, and Lujiazui. Its total length is 39.1 kilometres (24.3 mi),[2] and passengers are able to transfer to 13 existing and planned metro lines.[3] Due to Line 14 cutting across some of the densest areas of Shanghai and being a relief line for line 2, high ridership is expected for the line. As such the line uses high capacity 8 car A size trains similar to lines 1 and 2.[4] The line uses an automatic train control system jointly developed by Thales and Shanghai Electric.[5] Line 14 is fully driverless.[6] The line is colored olive on system maps.
