Passengers can transfer to Subway Line 1 from this line at Dongdan Station, and transfer to Subway Line 2 in Chongwenmen Stations and Yonghegong Station. You can transfer to Subway Line 13 from Lishuiqiao Station in which is to the north of this line. Every station on this line has been installed a lift for the disabled.
