History[edit]

The first phase of Line 9, from Songjiang New City to Guilin Road stations, opened on December 29, 2007. It uses the Bombardier Movia trains which are also used on Line 1.

Line 9 did not directly connect to the rest of the Shanghai Metro network until the opening of the Line 9 portion of the Yishan Road station on December 28, 2008.[2] The station is an interchange between Line 3 and Line 4. A shuttle bus conveyed passengers between Guilin Road and Yishan Road stations until construction was completed.

In December 2009, the second phase of Line 9 (from Yishan Road to Century Avenue) was completed, providing passengers with a direct link from Songjiang District in the west to Pudong in the east without having to transfer to other lines. In December 30, 2012 the extension from Songjiang New City to Songjiang south Railway Station was completed.

Future[edit]
