Line 2 of CRT runs southeastward from Jiaochangkou to Yudong. Line 2 began operation as the first metro line in the West of China on 18 June 2005. It was subsequently expanded 1 June 2006 from Zoo to Xinshancun, and on 30 December 2014 to Yudong. The line was China's first heavy monorail line, built using Hitachi Monorail technology.

Line 2, which currently runs 29.9 km (18.6 mi) and services 25 stations, begins as a subway under downtown Jiefangbei, then runs west along the southern bank of the Jialing River on an elevated line, and then turns south into the city's southwestern inner suburbs, looping back east to terminate at Yudong in Ba'nan.
