The last south-bound train leaves Tiantongyuan North at 10:47pm. The last north-bound train leaves Songjiazhuang at 11:10pm. For the official timetable, see.[5]

Route[edit]

Line 5 Tiantongyuan. To the left is Tiantongyuan South station; a bus rapid transit line is visible in the center.

On a map, Line 5 runs vertically, beginning with three stops in the far northern suburb of Tiantongyuan in Changping District, well beyond the 5th Ring Road, then crossing Line 13 at Lishuiqiao Station, and entering into the vast residential swaths of Chaoyang District on either side of the Yuan dynasty city wall. At Huixinxijie Nankou Station, it links up with Line 10. Further south, it skirts east of the Temple of Earth and meets Line 2 Loop at the Yonghegong, also known as the Lama Temple. Then Line 5 cuts through the old neighborhoods of Dongcheng District and the old foreign Legation Quarter between Dongdan and Chongwenmen. Further south, Line 5 stops at the eastern entrance to the Temple of Heaven in Chongwen District and eventually reaches Songjiazhuang in Fengtai District south of the city, where the station actually lies west-east, in contrast to other stops (where it lies north-south). It takes 49 minutes to cover all the 23 stations. Zhangzizhonglu Station, named after a general martyred in World War II, is the only eponymous station of the Beijing Subway.

The depots are located after Tiantongyuan North Station and Songjiazhuang Station
