Changchun Rail Transit (Changchun RT) is an on-ground rail mass transit system in the city of Changchun, Jilin province, China. It is said to be the first light rail transit or metrotram system on mainland China. The initial phase of Line 3 was completed in 2001, the 2nd phase was completed in 2007. Thus the construction of Line 3 has been totally finished. It officially opened to revenue service in October 2002. The current total length of the route is 50.63 kilometers (31.46 mi) with 49 stations.[citation needed] Phase 3 of Line 4 is now under construction.

The system will be expanded by three lines of conventional underground metro. Construction of the first line of metro (Line 1), with 18 stations and a length of 20.12 kilometers (12.50 mi), started in 2011, and it is planned to open for service in 2020.[citation needed] Construction on a second metro line (Line 2) started in 2012.
