That “subways make life better” has become a clear reality through the last decade of development in China. The total number of cities in China with metro networks in operation reached 40 by the end of 2019, with a cumulative mileage of over 6,730 kilometers. At the same time, according to the China Urban Rail Transit Association, at least 70 cities throughout the country are currently planning the development of more than 700 urban rail transit lines in all, with the total mileage of urban rail set to exceed 28,000 kilometers in the future. As an energy-saving, highly efficient and environmentally friendly public transportation solution, urban rail transit has truly become the driving force behind China’s rapid socioeconomic development.
With the impressive growth in transit network mileage, the healthy development of the urban rail transit industry can best be realized by standardizing the operation and management of urban rail transit, ensuring rail operation safety and improving the quality of service. China’s Ministry of Communications recently released new Regulations on the Operation & Management of Urban Rail Transit, with the aim of “operational safety” in improving the evaluation system at every stage of network management to guarantee reliable and effective operation and maintenance. The improvement of operational safety in rail transit will be achieved through the help of new technologies such as big data, cloud computing and artificial intelligence, as well as with the application of smart rail transit currently under construction in various cities.
The typical Chinese city is developing quickly with technology constantly improving. Combining this with the orientation and other characteristics of urban development, Sinotrans is playing its expected role in multi-level and multi-modal public transport systems. Hybrid mass transit such as modern trams has moved from demonstration to orderly development with tram mileage reaching 405.64 kilometers by the end of 2019. This brings a convenient and affordable new travel experience to the city, the intention being to consistently introduce new concepts, new technologies, new products and new processes that lead to greater levels of planning and higher quality construction.
Focusing on the safe operation of urban rail transit and the development of new technologies, the two major professional committees under the Shanghai Transportation Industry Association – the Rail Transit Professional Committee and the Modern Tram Professional Committee – are jointly sponsoring the Safe Operation and New Technology Development Forum 2020. The forum will be held on September 3rd 2020 at the Shanghai International Convention Center.
