Guangfo Metro (Chinese: 广佛地铁; pinyin: Guǎngfó Dìtiě), Guangfo Line (Chinese: 广佛线; pinyin: Guǎngfó Xiàn), or Line 1 of the FMetro (Chinese: 佛山地铁1号线; pinyin: Fóshān Dìtiě Yī Hào Xiàn) is a subway line that connects the Chinese cities Foshan and Guangzhou. The line is currently[when?] 20 km long and has 14 stations, which are all underground.[3] When the line is completed, it will have 32.2 km of tracks and 21 stations, of which 17.4 km of tracks and 10 stations will be located in Guangzhou.[4] It was expected to start construction in 2002 with a tentative opening in 2009.[5][6][7] However, due to capital shortage, its construction was claimed to be suspended until it resumed in 2007.[8] The section between Kuiqilu (魁奇路) and Xilang (西朗) was completed in 2010 while the route between Xilang and Lijiao (Chinese: 沥滘) will be completed in 2016.[9] The Xilang-Yangang section began operation on December 28, 2015.[10] Since 24 April 2016, Wi-Fi is available across the entire line.[11]
