I agree with line M4 'cause it's connected to the airport and to suburban parking area (Transferium Rijndijk contains a lot of parking areas), and I think that the 2nd most busy line is M3 'cause it's connected to hospital ("Ziekenhuis" means "Hospital". I know it because: 1st many people here mentioned it. 2nd if I use a bit of german, "Ziekenhuis" sounds phonetically similiar to german expression for hospital "Krankenhaus").

For me, the M2 line is the busiest line in Rijndam 2018. Because there is the extension of the line at Transferium Rijndijk. But in Rijndam 2020, I find that the M4 line is the busiest because it is connected to the airport and the subway line crosses from east to southwest the Rijndam network.

Indeed; if you look at the number of seats and standing passenger capacity combined, a single 81-717 carriage can take more passengers (309) then a SG3 train (104+166 -> 270).
There might still be a difference in passengers per m2 in the capacity calculation, but even then; the 81-717 is much better suitable for high passenger loads. :)

I would say the M4 & Airport Shuttleservice. M4 as it links the city with the airport & Airport Shuttleservice as it saves a bus service

Actually the M4 needs the walk-thru-cars metro's like the M5 in Amsterdam, the H-type in Berlin en S-stock in London. Would that be a good idea?
