Line S7 is another suburban line, connecting to Lukou Airport. It will begin service in 2015 and will connect Lukou Airport in the north and Wuxiangshan in the south, passing Zhetang District and Lishui District. Line S1 and Line S7 will share the Lukou International Airport Station in the future. S7 will have 9 stations: Lukou International Airport, Zhetang, Zhetang New District, Jinshan, Tuanshan, Lishui, Zhongshan East Road, Jinlong Road and Wuxiang Mountain.
Besides S1 and S7, there are another six S lines planned. All the S series lines will link the city proper and suburban areas and even other cities. Among them, the first phase of S1 and S8 are in service, while S3 and S7 are under construction. The rest of lines, S2, S4, S5 and S6 are still in planning.
My question is if the metro line S1 runs directly from the South Railway Sation all the way to the aiport (and vice versa), or if I will have to transfer first? (Like take line 1 or 3 and then transfer to Line S1). Thanks in advance!
