Beijing has opened five new subway lines extending to the city's suburban areas that officials hope will help ease chronic traffic congestion.
Officials in the Chinese capital held a ceremony to inaugurate the lines before opening them to throngs of passengers Thursday.
The lines cost nearly 61 billion yuan ($9.2 billion) and spread to the suburbs in the northern and southern parts of the city.
Beijing now has 14 subway lines carrying 5 million passengers a day.
City leaders have been trying a variety of tactics to combat worsening traffic congestion, including capping the number of new car registrations for 2011 at 240,000, a third of this year's allotment.
