How to get there
Taking the westbound Yan’an Xilu Highway is the easiest route to reach the airport from central Shanghai. The Hongqiao exit is clearly signposted.
Metro lines 2 and 10 (tel: 643 70000; www.shmetro.com – Chinese only) link the airport (Terminal 2) with central Shanghai. Line 2 also runs east to Shanghai Pudong Airport. The journey time to the city centre is about 35 minutes, and the fare is around ¥6.
Public buses run regularly to city destinations, including the city ticket office. Bus 941 runs to Shanghai Railway Station, bus 938 links to Pudong Yangjiadu, bus 806 operates to Zhong Shan Nan Yi, bus 807 runs to Shanghai West Railway Station, and Airport Bus 1 serves Shan Xi Lu. There is limited space on buses for luggage.
Most major hotels run shuttle buses to/from the airport.
Long-distance coach services run to Suzhou, Nan Jing and Hangzhou.
Taxis are available outside the arrivals areas; the driver should use the meter but, if it is not working, agree on the fare before leaving the airport. Travellers should make sure they join the correct taxi queue as there are separate queues depending on the distance of the journey. A taxi trip into the centre (journey time: around 25-40 minutes) includes a toll upon exiting the airport, which is added to the fare. It is best to have the destination required written in Chinese or indicated on a map.
Extensive long- and short-term parking is available in front of both terminal buildings.
