Beijing Subway Line 1 runs from Pingguoyuan in the west through to Sihui in the east. It is colored standard red. It runs beneath Chang'an Avenue and through the Xidan, Wangfujing and Dongdan commercial districts. As the oldest line of the Beijing Subway, Line 1 was also the most heavily used from the time the subway opened in 1969 until January 2013, when the near-completion of the Line 10 loop caused ridership on that line to surge past Line 1.
