This aerial photo taken on Sept. 26, 2023 shows a new suspended monorail line in operation in Wuhan, central China's Hubei Province. China's first commercial suspended monorail line opened to the public on Tuesday in Wuhan, capital of central China's Hubei Province. 

The suspended monorail line operates for 12 hours every day, with a monorail departing every 10 minutes. The maximum operating speed of the monorail train is 60 km per hour. The entire operation process, including starting, entering stations, opening and closing doors, is fully automated and requires no human intervention.

The monorail train, also known as "the Optics Valley Photon," appears to hang upside down because the track is positioned above. Passengers can enjoy the city from an entirely different perspective through the glass floor beneath their feet. (Photo by Du Zixuan/Xinhua)
