Metro Line 16 will open to the public in December as part of its ongoing trial operation, local media reported Wednesday.

The line runs from Luoshan Road Station at the eastern end of Line 11 to Dishui Lake Station near Lingang New City on the southeastern coast of Pudong New Area.

Metro operators have been testing Line 16 with empty trains for some time, according to a report on the news website ximin.cn.

Line 16's trains will have different seat arrangements than the trains on other metro lines, which all sport two inward-facing benches along each side of the train. On Line 16, the seats will face forward, which the metro operator said will make them more comfortable for passengers. The operator is considering other arrangements, such as putting three to five seats next to each other, according to the report.

There will be 46 city bus lines that have stops near Line 16's 11 stations. Each station will have at least one bus line nearby. Most will have more. East Huinan Station, for example, will have 17 bus lines.

The Dishui Lake Station will have five bus lines to serve passengers going to the nearby China Maritime Museum and Shanghai Ocean University.
