Dongguan Transportation -- Getting Around

Dongguan is scheduled to have 7 subway lines by the end of 2030, with the length of about 191 miles (308 kilometers). Currently, passengers can take Line 2, which runs between Humen Railway Station and Dongguan Railway Station, passing 15 stations. Line 1 and Line 3, which are under construction now, will serve the public in 2020. Besides, some metro lines of Dongguan will connect to Shenzhen and Guangzhou. This will make the trip in the Pearl River Delta much easier.
See subway maps for reference.
