About Chongqing Rail (Source Wikipedia)
The Chongqing Rail Transit (branded as CRT; also known as Chongqing Metro) is the rapid transit system in the city of Chongqing, China. In operation since 2005, it serves the transportation needs of the city’s main business and entertainment downtown areas and inner suburbs. As of January 2021, CRT consisted of eight lines, with a total track length of 370 km (230 mi). Lines 1, 4, 5, 6, 10, and the Loop line are conventional heavy-rail subways, while Lines 2 and 3 are high-capacity monorails. To keep up with urban growth, construction is underway on Lines 9, 18, and Jiangtiao lines, in addition to extensions to Lines 1, 4, 5, 6, 10, and the Loop line. A network of 18 lines is planned.
The Chongqing Rail Transit is a unique transit system in China because of the geography of Chongqing being a densely-populated but mountainous city, with multiple river valleys. Two lines use heavy-monorail technology, leveraging the ability to negotiate steep grades and tight curves and rapid transit capacity. They are capable of transporting 32,000 passengers per hour per direction, however, the busiest section of Line 3 reached a peak passenger volume of 37,700 pphpd in 2019 At 98 km (61 mi), the system’s two monorail lines form the longest monorail system in the world, with the 56.1 km (34.9 mi) Line 3 being the world’s longest single monorail line even if the 11.0 km (6.8 mi) Airport branch is excluded. The length and the capacity of its monorail network both also make it the world’s busiest monorail system, with a total of 94 million and 250 million rides in 2015 on Line 2 and Line 3, respectively. The latter ridership statistic for Line 3 also makes it the world’s busiest single monorail line.
