Hohhot Metro

Hohhot Metro, also known as Hohhot Urban Rail Transit, has two lines in operation nowadays. Metro line 1, stretching about 22 kilometers (14 miles), connects Yili Health Valley from west to east via 20 stations. It passes East Railway Station and some famous attractions, like the Botanical Garden and the Exhibition Center along West Xinhua Street, Xinhua Street, Dongzhanqian Street and Airport Avenue. Hohhot Metro line 2, in the shape of an "L", covers the East Sub Center, Tiebei District, Hohhot Railway Station, City Center and South Sub Center by 24 stations. It links Arshaan Road and East Tali Road, having a distance of 27 kilometers (17 miles).

Apart from these main subway lines, there will be three auxiliary lines in the city. Hohhot subway line 3 will extend in the northeast-southwest direction at the length of 36 kilometers (22 miles), and line 4 will stretch 21 kilometers (13 miles) from the north to the south, while line 5 will be about 35 kilometers (21.5 miles) in the southwest direction. These metro lines will bring a great convenience for the passenger transportation in the city.

According to the preliminary planning, this Urban Rail Transit will consist of these five lines at the total length of about 155 kilometers (96 miles). There will be 123 stations in total, including 14 transfer stations. In addition, five parking lots, two comprehensive bases and three vehicle depots will be built along these metro lines.
