Seven out of 13 trains arrived have accomplished static and dynamic debugging.

The coming of the metro era will no doubt bring great changes to future travel and life.
Wang Hui,a post-90 administrator in a law firm,who lives near the Overseas Chinese Museum, needs to take No.31 bus to work every day. She said that it is very crowed to take a bus in rush hours. From her perspective, it is unable to keep up with the pace of urban development only through road expansion. If there is a metro, people’s traveling needs can be met as maximum as possible.
