Beijing will open its first domestically developed automated subway line with self-driving trains this year. The 16.6-km Yanfang Line, which is being debugged, will improve convenience of transportation for residents living in the city's southwestern suburb of Fangshan. Construction is expected to be completed in 2017 on two new rail lines, the city's first modern tram line and first medium-low speed maglev line.
