We have traveled all around the city due to the ease of the subway. We only took a cab once and that was due to the subway closing for the night.

Easy to use once you figure out how to interpret the signs. Fast, efficient and a good way to mix with the people of Beijing. You can usually find someone to help you with the language when trying to purchase a ticket at the ticket kiosk.

Clean, easy to negotiate and overall a good experience. Ticket price was a little difficult to understand but easily fixed. Don't hesitate to use this system. Much easier than you may think.

The Beijing subway is marvellous for getting around town cheaply. It can be crowded, of course, but go at off hours. Inexpensive and easy to use with the top up pass card. Expect some mild pushing and some racing for seats, but everyone gets treated that way.

We were able to figure out how to use the Beijing subway with very little effort. One thing to mention is to pay attention to the time that certain stations close. We almost got caught in a close station during a transfer. Overall very easy though.
