Line 6 of the Guangzhou Metro runs from Liwan District to Huangpu District. It starts at Xunfenggang and ends at Xiangxue, interchanging with Line 5 at Tanwei and Ouzhuang; Line 1 at Huangsha and Dongshankou; Line 8 at Cultural Park; Line 2 at Haizhu Square; Line 21 at Suyuan; Line 3 at Yantang and Tianhe Coach Terminal. The total length is 41.9 km (26.0 mi) with 32 stations. Line 6 serves densely populated areas including residential communities in Jinshazhou, the pedestrian street in Beijing Lu and wholesale markets in Shahe. Nevertheless, Line 6, which runs four-car trains, has long had a questionable train capacity. The phase one section between Xunfenggang and Changban began to provide service from 28 December 2013 with the exception of Yide Lu and Shahe stations.[4]Yide Lu opened over a year later on 28 January 2015. The second phase of Line 6 from Changban to Xiangxue has been in operation since 28 December 2016. Like Lines 4 and 5, Line 6 is equipped with linear induction motor technology. Line 6's color is maroon

Future Expansion

The Third Phase of Line 6 was originally planned to further extend the line east deeper into Zengcheng, terminating at Guanhu station and connect with the Zengcheng Development Zone Station on the Xinbaiguang intercity railway. The extension would be 19km long with provisions to be spun off into an independent line. The spun off line (Line 23) was planned to run between Jingxi Nanfang Hospital and Guanhu stations with the central section reusing the Phase II section of Line 6 between Botanical Garden and Xiangxue Stations making use of the provision for splitting Line 6 at Botanical Garden Station.[5] However in 2018, this plan was abandoned and Phase III east extension of Line 6 was folded permanently into Line 23. The western section of Line 23 will no longer using any Phase II trackage of Line 6, instead heading southwest to Chishajiao Station in Haizhu District.[6] Line 6 Phase III will instead be a short 4km two station extension to Liucun.[7]

In 2019, another proposal to spin off the eastern section of Line 6 beyond Botanical Garden Station was proposed. This time the new line will take over the eastern section beyond Botanical Garden Station and head south to Canton Tower station. This new line is tentatively named Line 20.[8]

Rolling Stock

Line 6 is served by 89 sets of four car linear motor trains.
