Guangzhou Metro Line 4 is one of only two lines of the Guangzhou Metro which uses Linear Motor Trains. The voltage used is 1.5 kV, which may be the highest voltage used on third rail systems. 750V is the maximum that is considered safe if there is no bottom contact. However, voltages above 1.5kV are impractical on metro systems, due to the need for extremely large circuit breakers.
