In order to acquire a better understanding of regional rapid lines, this paper studied the implementation evaluation of regional rapid lines planning. Based on the Shanghai comprehensive transportation annual report and the smart card data, the evaluation focused on the realization of planning objectives and passenger flow characteristics. The result shows that, with regard to regional rapid rail lines, the average traveling distance carried is relatively longer, and the passenger flow density is relatively higher, while the load density is relatively lower comparing to the metro lines. From the spatial distribution aspect, the passenger flow distributes along the line, agglomerates in the central city area and partly clusters within the new town. From the temporal distribution view, the passenger flow clusters cumulatively within the peak hours and the agglomeration effect is prominent. Finally, suggestions of regional rapid lines planning and passenger flow forecasting are put forward.
