Xuanwu Men Station[1] (simplified Chinese: 宣武门站; traditional Chinese: 宣武門站; pinyin: Xuānwǔmén Zhàn) is an interchange station between Line 2 and Line 4 of the Beijing Subway.[2] It is named for Xuanwumen, a former gate in Beijing's city wall that was demolished during construction of the subway. The station opened in 1971 and handles an average of 350,000 passengers per day in 2012.[3] Interchange volumes can reach per hour can reach 15,000 passengers per hour in the morning peak.
