People's Square Station (simplified Chinese: 人民广场站; traditional Chinese: 人民廣場站; pinyin: Rénmín Guǎngchǎng Zhàn) is the name of a large interchange station of the Shanghai Metro, located below People's Square, also next to People's Park and Nanjing Road, in the city center of Shanghai.[6] The station is one of the busiest metro stations in mainland China, handling a daily traffic of over 700,000 passengers.[7]

The opening of the downtown sections of Lines 12 and 13 in late December 2015 has allowed for alternative routes around the station, reducing the daily traffic by around 10%.[7]

The station is an interchange between Lines 1, 2 and 8, making it an important interchange station boasting close to twenty exits. This station is exceptionally busy because of a unique combination of it being an interchange between a west-east and north-south line, as well as being surrounded by office buildings, shopping malls and several tourist attractions. This combination causes it to be extremely busy during peak times, but it remains very busy during the rest of the day as well.

In early 2009, a new side platform for Line 8 riders heading south (to Shendu Highway) opened. This platform was converted from a former link to Line 1.[8] Passengers from Shiguang Road station heading south can exit from either door.
