The Beijing Metro Line 1 is the most important Metro Line in China. It reflects the image of modern public transport in China for millions of visitors, connecting the historical Center of Beijing with the modern architectural symbols of the New Century. The rounded frontshape, the continuous window line on the side and the large glass in the drivers cab are all combining to create a spectacular and dynamic image of the Exterior Design. The Interior is equipped with many practical and functional details, such as the grip-poles and the curved vertical handrails helping to visually enlarge the space of the passenger compartments.
