Guangzhou’s metro system is known for many things, including (in no particular order) it’s efficiency, cleanliness and insane passenger volume. By the beginning of 2019, according to a report by Guangzhou Daily, Guangzhou will have baby-care rooms accessible from Baiyun Airport to Guangzhou South Station.
On August 15, 2018, officials confirmed that 40 more metro stations will have facilities catering to mothers with infants and small children by the end of the year. The move is thanks in large part to public outcry over the lack of stations that accomodated mothers and their babies.
The image below highlights which stations will have infant-care rooms by the start of 2019, as indicated by the small crying baby icon. Click the map* to enlarge.
Stations along Line 9, Line 13, Knowledge City Line and the southern extension of Line 4 are also expected to have infant-care rooms at some point in the future, although Guangzhou Metro staff were vague about the details when contacted by That's.
In addition to the baby-care rooms in Guangzhou subway stations, the local government plans to install similar facilities in other heavily trafficked areas around the city. Mothers looking to make use of baby-care amenities can find the nearest room by adding the WeChat account ‘gzwomen.’
*The highlighted stations featured on the above map have been reported by Guangzhou Daily. It is possible that additional stations will recieve baby-care rooms. Stay tuned to That's Guangzhou for updates.
