Simplified Chinese上海市域轨道交通
Traditional Chinese上海市域軌道交通

Shanghai Metropolitan Area Intercity Railway System or Shanghai Suburban Railway System is a network of regional railways radiating or surrounding the city of Shanghai, China. It is a plan for the gradual implementation of a regional rail system across the metropolitan area. The system will eventually connect with Jiangsu Yangtze MIR and Hangzhou Greater Bay Area network.

Shanghai Metropolitan Area Intercity Railway plan for 2035

On July 2, 2021, the National Development and Reform Commission issued a notice on the issuance of the "Multi-level Rail Transit Plan in the Yangtze River Delta Region".[1] The plan proposed that by 2025, the Yangtze River Delta on the track will be basically completed. The operating mileage of arterial railways is about 17,000 kilometers, of which high-speed railways are about 8,000 kilometers, forming a three-hour inter-regional traffic circle between the Yangtze River Delta and neighboring urban agglomerations and provincial capitals. The operating mileage of intercity railways is about 1,500 kilometers, and the intercity traffic circle between neighboring big cities in the Yangtze River Delta and Shanghai, Nanjing, Hangzhou, Hefei, Ningbo and surrounding cities forms a 1-1.5 hour intercity traffic circle. The operating mileage of urban (suburban) railways is about 1,000 kilometers. The Shanghai metropolitan area and the Nanjing, Hangzhou, Hefei, and Ningbo metropolitan areas form a 0.5-1 hour commuting traffic circle.

By 2035, the Yangtze River Delta will be built on high-quality modern tracks, and the Yangtze River Delta will become a network of trunk railways, inter-city railways, urban (suburban) railways, urban rail transit facilities, zero transfers in hubs, and excellent operational service quality. Rail transit is a model area for networked, integrated, intelligent, and green development of rail transit, and rail transit comprehensively leads and promotes the development of regional integration.
