During this time, the following subway stations will be closed or run adjusted operating hours:

  • Line 2 – Qianmen Station – closed 

  • Line 1 – Tiananmen East Station (Tiananmen Dong) and Tiananmen West Station (Tiananmen Xi) – closed after 7.30pm

The following roads will also be closed during this time: 

  • Tiananmen Square – Tiananmen Guangchang Dongce Lu and Tiananmen Guangchang Xice Lu – no motor vehicles allowed, except for those with necessary identification (alternate routes include Zhengyi Lu and Rendahuitang Xi Lu)

  • Xiangshan – Nanxincun Jie (the section from Hongfeng Lu to Xiangshan Nan Lu) – closed to motor vehicles traveling from east to west from 7am until 7pm

If you were lucky enough to get a ticket to the newly-opened Universal Beijing Resort, be sure to plan your journey in advance. October 1 until 5 is expected to be particularly busy on the newly integrated Line 1 and Batong Line, which runs directly to the resort.
