Line 5, which can be identified by the purple indication color on various subway maps, was the first light rail line in China and has been transporting locals and tourists since 2003. Sometimes referred to as the Xinmin Line, it runs from the Minhang Developmental Zone to Xinhuang, which is the end of Subway Line 1. The only transfer on this line is at the Xinhuang station. Reaching into the far southern areas of the city, it is more often used by locals commuting to and from work in the city.
