Zhujiang New Town Automated People Mover System (Chinese:珠江新城旅客自动输送系统), or APM line, is an automated people mover (APM) system mainly serving the Zhujiang New Town area in Guangzhou, the new CBD of the city. It is an underground and automatic operating system. In terms of construction cost per kilometre, it is the most expensive people mover system in the world, yet it is the shortest and least used line in the Guangzhou Metro network. The whole line began service before the Asian Games on 8 November 2010 with the exception of Haixinsha and Canton Tower. This was due to the two stations being located close to the opening and closing ceremony venue.

The system was designed to provide service from 6:00 to 24:00 every day, and may run extra hours on special occasions, such as weekends, holidays or when major events are being held. But due to the low demand, trains operated from 8:00 to 20:00 when the line first opened. The service hours have since been gradually extended and from 4 October 2014 trains have been operating between 7:00 and 23:30.

The APM uses 14 Bombardier Transportation's APM 100 cars built in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
