Line 4 of Shenzhen Metro (Longhua Line) runs northward from Futian Checkpoint (Futiankouan) to Qinghu. The line serves Futian District and the eastern part of Bao'an District (in particular, Longhua Subdistrict) of Shenzhen.
Four-car Type A trains operate at 8-minute frequencies at all times. The relatively low capacity and frequency of the line has made the line extremely crowded during rush hours. Still, the line carries over 250,000 people daily peaking at 516,100 in May 5, 2014. There are electronic signboard system which display estimated train arrival times.
Operation by MTR
Line 4's operation and management was handed over to MTR Shenzhen on July 1, 2010 under a BOT basis. Upon MTR's takeover, elements of the existing stations were modified to match MTR Hong Kong's styles, such as changing of lighting, station maps and signs, posters and the introduction of station art similar to those found on MTR's Hong Kong stations. English station names were also modified (i.e. 'Fu tian kou an' changed to 'Futian Checkpoint') for easier Western recognition, and staff uniform and help desks were also changed to match the styles seen in Hong Kong's MTR.
The English font type and tickets remain unchanged.
