Zhujiang New Town Automated People Mover System, APM for short, is an underground and automatically operated line of Guangzhou Metro. It mainly serves the CBD Zhujiang New Town in Tianhe District, covering nine stops from south to north. Due to the short distance, it only takes about 10 minutes to finish a trip on APM. At both of its ends, passengers could exchange between APM line and the city Subway Line 3, which has connected to Baiyun International Airport.
