Interior of a Line 3 train


Chongqing Rail Transit Line 3 runs from north to south, linking the districts separated by Chongqing's two main rivers, the Yangtze (Chang Jiang) and Jialing rivers. The first phase of the line began construction on 5 April 2007. The initial segment from Lianglukou to Yuanyang (18 stations, 17.5 km) opened on September 29, 2011, with a northern extension from Yuanyang to Jiangbei Airport opening on December 30, 2011[3] and a southern extension from Ertang to terminus Yudong on December 28, 2012.[4] At 55.5 kilometers or 34.5 miles, Line 3 is the longest single monorail in the world by track length.[5][6]

There are interchange stations in central Yuzhong district for transfer with Line 1 at Lianglukou, and with Line 2 at Niujiaotuo and, in the future (est. 2013), at Yudong.
