By 2022, people in Guangzhou will be able to take the metro to Dongguan and Shenzhen.
Dongguan is planning to build four metro lines in the city. Dongguan and Guangzhou have jointly agreed that metro line 5 in Guangzhou will connect with metro line 1 of Dongguan.
What’s more, the metro line in Dongguan will also try to connect to Shenzhen, so that passengers can travel between the three cities by metro in the future. Officials estimate that it will take one hour to travel between Dongguan from Guangzhou when the metro lines connect.
