Metro trains named "Yayun Jixiang Hao" (Literally: "Good luck, Asian Games"; hereinafter referred to as "Train Asiad") were launched in Guangzhou last Saturday (August 29).

Xu Ruisheng, Executive Deputy Secretary General of the Guangzhou Asian Games Organising Committee and Vice Mayor of Guangzhou, said Guangzhou Metro plays an important role in the Asian Games, as the distribution of Games venues has been taken into account in the planning for the city's Metro network.

Train Asiad begins its mission.

It is expected that by 2010, Guangzhou Metro will serve 3.78 million passengers every day. And during the Asian Games, a special line connecting Haipang to Huangchun will be launched.

According to Guangzhou Daily, all officials, athletes, staffs of the Games and the audience with tickets can take metro for free.

According to Guangzhou's official english website, with the Games Emblem, Mascots and "Guangzhou 2010" on it, Train Asiad has began its mission to serve the Games and promote it throughout the city.

In cooperation with the Games official website, Guangzhou Metro launched an online service system for the Asian Games in both Chinese and English versions in May this year, providing transport guidance services for Chinese and international visitors.

Metro lines will cover more than 80 per cent of the Asian Games venues by the time the Games opens in November 2010.
