Jinan Metro (simplified Chinese: 济南轨道交通; traditional Chinese: 濟南軌道交通; pinyin: Jǐnán guǐdào jiāotōng) is a rapid transit system serving Jinan, the capital of Shandong province, China.

Planning of the system began in the early 2000s but was delayed due to 2008 world economic crisis. After years of preparation, construction started at an official ceremony on 29 December 2013. The first line Line 1 (also known as R1) has a total of 11 stations and a length of 26.3 km, and cost CN¥12 billion.[1] It was inaugurated on January 1, 2019, with a 3-month public trial run.

The first phase of construction was adopted by National Development and Reform Commission and includes three lines (R1, R2, R3) with 47 stations. The first phase has a total length of 96.5 km, including 72.2 km of underground section, 23.8 km of elevated section, and 0.5 km of transitional section. It is expected to cost up to ¥48.9 bn. The city's government plans to build eight lines of urban-suburban metro with 262 km length and 154 stations (including 18 interchange stations) in total. 4 lines will run west-east and 3 lines will run north-south. The last one will provide a loop service.

The metro uses Alstom/Nanjing Puzhen Rolling Stock Works Metropolis type B six-car rolling stock. The fare system is based on existing smart card technology.[2]
