Tianjin subway is serving the locals and tourists with five lines which include line 1, line 2, line 3, line 6, and line 9. Passengers can transfer among these lines to achieve easy access. These metro lines pass some major passenger transport hubs or hot attractions, such as Tianjin Railway Station, Binhai International Airport, Tianjin Zoo, Water Parkand Porcelain House.

Tianjin is the second city in China to have its own underground railway system. Its first subway line was opened in 1976, and was only 3.6 kilometers (2.2 miles) at first and then extended to 7.4 kilometers (4.6 miles) in 1984. However, this line was closed for reconstruction in 2001 because it could not meet the rising passenger flow volume any more.

The reconstruction of the subway line 1 lasted from 2002 to June, 2006. Since then the construction of the city railway system was begun. In terms of the city’s further plan, four types of metro line systems are to be built, namely, M Lines, B Lines, Z Lines and C Lines. M Lines are going to run in the city downtown (namely the city subway lines), while the B Lines will be in Binhai New District. Z Lines will connect the downtown and Binhai New District and C Lines will run by the Haihe River.
