During the pre-operational safety assessment meeting held by the Sanya Tram Demonstration Line Project Team on Nov 21, experts agreed that the Sanya tram has met the required operating conditions, marking the start of official operation of the tram line.

This assessment meeting included nine experts from Macao, Guangzhou, Shenzhen, Shenyang, Xiamen, Huai'an, Foshan and Zhuzhou.

The line was opened for trial operations on Oct 10, 2020 and is the first domestic tram line to be constructed under the public-private partnership (PPP) model, in which the government works with private companies to accomplish infrastructure projects.

The line has a total length of about 8.37 kilometers and a bridge section of about 0.35 km. The entire journey takes about 35 minutes to complete.

The line includes 15 stations and runs through the urban area of Sanya, connecting important transportation hubs such as Sanya Railway Station and Sanya Bus Station. Jinjiling Street Station and Jian'gang Road Station are only a few hundred meters away from Sanya Bay.

The line will make inner-city travel in Sanya much more convenient, and will also benefit the construction of Hainan Free Trade Port, said Cui Hongwei, chairman and general manager of the Sanya Rail Transit Company.
