Wuhan Metropolitan Area Intercity Railway (Chinese: 武汉城市圈城际铁路; pinyin: Wǔhàn chéngshì quān chéngjì tiělù) is a network of high-speed commuter railways in and around Wuhan, the capital of the Chinese province Hubei. The first line of the system opened at the end of 2013, and two more, in mid-2014. Another line is under construction.

Preliminary plans exist for the construction of more lines (to Tianmen and Qianjiang) as well.
