China set to operate driverless metro trains in Guangzhou.
Stretching 3.94 kilometers, the Automated People Mover (APM) service is part of the Guangzhou Metro Corporation.
Along the nine-station underground line, trains will travel at the maximum speed of 60 kilometers per hour, the Xinhua news agency reports.
Each train can take a maximum of 138 people, and a ticket for the ride will cost two yuan.
A Guangzhou Metro Corporation official estimated that the line would handle about 50,000 passengers per day. (ANI)
