Line 4 (Longhua) (simplified Chinese: 四号线; traditional Chinese: 四號線; pinyin: Sìhào Xiàn; Jyutping: Sei3 Hou6 Sin3), also known as Longhua Line(龙华线; 龍華線; Lónghuá xiàn; Lung4 Waa4 Sin3), of the Shenzhen Metro runs northward from Futian Checkpoint to Qinghu. The line serves Futian District and the eastern part of Bao'an District (in particular, Longhua Subdistrict) of Shenzhen.

The line originally used 4-car trains, making it extremely crowded[2] although it still carried over 250,000 people daily[3] peaking at 516,100 on 5 May 2014.[4] Stations feature electronic passenger information systems which display estimated train arrival times.

When the second phase of the line opened in 2011, there were only 8 trains which were completely unable to meet passenger demand. By 2012, 24 trains were in service. On 26 January 2014, the first 6-car train entered service, and as of 30 January 2015 all trains are 6 cars; 2 months earlier than planned.

The line is coloured red, although it was originally marked in blue until 1 July 2010.

Operation by MTR[edit]

Line 4's operation and management was handed over to MTR Corporation (Shenzhen), a subsidiary of MTR Corporation on 1 July 2010 (for 30 years, until 2040) 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.[5] English station names were also modified (i.e. 'Futiankouan' 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.

MTR Fare Saver[edit]

An MTR Fare Saver kiosk is available in the Futian Checkpoint Station. Passengers with the Hong Kong Octopus Card can utilize the kiosk and receive a $3 discount on the subsequent trip from Lok Ma Chau Station on MTR Hong Kong's East Rail Line.
