Ningbo Rail Transit Information

Currently in the development stage, the Ningbo Rail Transit serves the people of Ningbo, China and is just the second metro network that is operational in the Zhejiang Province. The rapid transit operates on just 2 lines, with a total number of 6 lines planned. The idea is to connect the urban areas of the city, via the metro. With a track length of 74.5 km long, the rapid transit serves 51 stations presently and is under the ownership of the Ningbo Rail Transit Group. An extremely young metro service, it began operations just 2 years ago, on the 30th of May 2014. In its inaugural year, it had a daily ridership of 151,400 at its peak.

Ningbo Rail Transit Rules and Tips

Those travelling the metro without a valid ticket, are subject to a fine of five times the highest fare on the metro. The same is the case for those passengers who ‘overtravel’. People with disabilities of any kind, can travel the metro for free provided they have certain documents to back their claim. Explosives, flammable substances etc. are prohibited. Bicycles too, aren’t allowed on the metro unless they are of the folding kind. Animals (pets) and luggage that weighs more than 20 kg are not allowed on the metro as well. Guide dogs/animals are an exception to this rule.
