The trial period for s started when stations were opened at 5:00pm on Tuesday, December 28, 2004. Currently, there are s only at 15 minute intervals. After the opening of the Shenzhen Metro, Shenzhen has became the 5th city with underground railway system in mainland China (after Beijing, Tianjin, Shanghai and Guangzhou). It has become a very cheap alternative way to travel in the city (compared with other transport modes such as buses and taxis), with prices currently ranging from only 2 to 5 Renminbi per person for each trip.
Both the Shenzhen Metro in Shenzhen and the Kowloon-Canton Railway (East Rail) in Hong Kong make connections to Luo Hu (written as Lo Wu in Hong Kong, based on Cantonese), the border-crossing area between the Shenzhen Special Economic Zone and the Hong Kong Special Administrative Region. A station situated at another Shenzhen-Hong Kong border-crossing area, called Huang Gang , will be open in the near future. Besides that, the Shenzhen Metro also connects to the Window of the World (世界之窗), a popular tourist spot in Shenzhen.
Shenzhen Metro is now researching the feasibility of using Hong Kong Octopus Card on the system. There're reports indicating the usage might be possible in about a year.
