Based on the current and upcoming metro network of the city of S, considering the previewed passenger flow, we propose a plan with certain number of through trains operating on adjacent lines, and a train graph as well as its corresponding schedule is generated with certain constraints considered. Relative issues are discussed, including infrastructure, signal system and modes of control. Finally, a general conclusion of the feasibility and benefit on passengers and operators of the two through train services is made.
