Line 2 of the Beijing Subway (Chinese: 北京地铁2号线; pinyin: běijīng dìtiě èrhào xiàn) is a rapid transit rail line in central Beijing that runs in a rectangular loop around the city centre. The line traces the Ming Dynasty inner city wall, which was demolished and paved over by the 2nd Ring Road and Qianmen Avenue. Line 2, opened in 1984, is the second oldest and second busiest of Beijing's subway lines and the only one to serve the Beijing Railway Station. All 18 stations on the 23.1 km line are under ground. Ten of the 18 stations offer transfers to other lines. Line 2's color is      blue.

Fare[edit]

Flat fare of RMB(¥) 2.00 with unlimited transfers.

Hours of Operation[edit]

Platform sign indicating inner loop Line 2 train (going in the clockwise direction) at the Xizhimen Subway Station (Station No. 201)

Because Line 2 is a loop line with no true terminus, Line 2 trains are identified as either running on the inner loop (内环, nèihuán), going in the clockwise direction, or on the outer loop (外环, wàihuán), going in the counter clockwise direction. However, trains returning to the Taipinghu Depot either terminate at Xizhimen or Jishuitan; passengers are asked wait for a full loop line train at these stations.

The first inner loop train departs Jishuitan at 5:03am. The first outer loop train departs Xizhimen at 5:09am. The last inner loop train leaves Jishuitan at 10:55pm. The last outer loop train leaves Xizhimen at 11:14pm. For the official timetable, see.[3]

Route[edit]

Line 2 station in 2003.

Line 2 encircles the old city center districts of Dongcheng and Xicheng and skirts the western edge of Chaoyang. The entire line runs underground and connects with Line 1 at Fuxingmen and Jianguomen, Line 4 at Xizhimen and Xuanwumen, Line 5 at Yonghegong Lama Temple and Chongwenmen, Line 6 at Chegongzhuang and Chaoyangmen, Line 8 at Guloudajie, Line 13 at Xizhimen and Dongzhimen, and the Airport Express at Dongzhimen.

List of Stations[edit]

Twelve of Line 2's eighteen stations are named after city gates. These stations end in men, meaning gate. The following table lists Line 2 stations in the outer loop or counter clockwise order.
