The Line 14 trains have a top speed of 120 kilometers per hour, with both fast and normal speed trains being offered. After the opening of the line, Conghua district, previously the only Guangzhou district with no metro lines, was finally connected with the city's metro system. Residents of Conghua are now able to reach downtown Guangzhou in as little as one hour.
