Ground Transportation
By Maglev
Shanghai Maglev Train links Pudong International Airport with Longyang Road Metro Station, where transfer to Metro Line 2 or Line 7 is possible. The 30-km ride typically takes less than eight minutes. Trains operate every 15 minutes. A standard single-ride ticket costs 50 RMB and 80 RMB round-trip within 7 days.  First-class tickets cost 100 RMB (single) or 180 RMB (round-trip). Passengers with intraday flight ticket can get a discounted price of 40RMB for a single ride. All cars are equipped with racks and space designated for luggage.

By Metro Line 2
Shanghai Metro Line 2 also provides service between Pudong International Airport and Longyang Road. It is also a busy line connecting Shanghai’s Pudong area and Puxi area, such as Lujiazui, People’s Square, and also Hongqiao International Airport, Shanghai’s primary domestic airport. Prices are substantially lower than the Maglev (¥6 from Pudong International Airport to Longyang Road and Lujiazui, ¥7 to People’s Square, ¥8 to Hongqiao International Airport). However, trips take longer due to lower speed of trains. A ride to People’s Square, the city centre,  or to Hongqiao Airport takes more than one hour. In addition, not all trains go to Hongqiao International Airport.
