How to get there
Parking lots and garages (fee-based) are available at the airport. Parking on P1 and P2 is a little more expensive than on P4 and P5.
Follow the S1 Yingbin Expressway as far as the Hongqiao Gang intersection, from there continue west. The street later becomes the S20 Outer Ring Expressway and takes you around the city as far as Hongqiao International Airport.
To reach the city center, you also first take the S1 Yingbin Expressway as far as the Hongqiao Gang intersection, continue west from there and via the S20 Outer Ring Expressway, but then you turn north onto the X611 Luoshan Road. In Panqiaocun, the X611 becomes the Inner Ring Elevated Road, which crosses the Huangpu River in Yanpu. If you are traveling to Pudong Business District, turn off earlier, at Tielangan Bridge, to head west on the X001 Yanggao Middle Road.
Maglev und Metro
The Maglev (smtdc.com), or Shanghai Transrapid, is a magnetic levitation train line providing daily services from around 7 a.m. to 9.30 p.m. between Pudong International Airport and the Metro Line 2 stop, Longyang Road. Line 2 connects the Pudong and Puxi districts via the city center and Hongqiao International Airport.
Shanghai has four train stations from which travelers can continue their journey to cities almost everywhere in China. From the Hongqiao Transport Hub, for example, you can make the journey to Beijing in roughly five hours. Trains departing the South Railway Station serve the southern provinces, those from Shanghai West Railway Station serve cities in the surrounding region, including Nanjing, Suzhou and Wuxi, while the destinations to be reached from Shanghai Railway Station include Hong Kong, and on night trains, Beijing and Xian.
A number of bus routes connect the airport with various districts of Shanghai. Stops are located outside both terminal buildings. Line 1, for example, will take you all the way to Hongqiao International Airport and Line 2 as far as the City Terminal at Jing’an Temple. A night bus also runs via the city center to Hongqiao International Airport.
A number of intercity buses provide daily services between Pudong International Airport and larger cities, such as Wenzhou, Hangzhou, Wuxi and Qingtian.
Taxis are available outside both terminal buildings. The journey into downtown Shanghai takes roughly an hour (depending on the traffic). A nighttime surcharge is payable between 11 p.m. and 5 a.m. Travelers are recommended to use only licensed taxis and always to make sure that the meter is switched on. Useful tip: Not all taxi drivers can speak or read English, so it’s wise to always take along your destination address written down in Chinese.
