Shanghai Metro System (Shanghai Subway)
Up to now, shanghai has constructed 12 lines with a total length over 400 km (rank 3rd in the world) and more than 250 metro stations. Among all the lines, line 5 and line 6 are light rails and others are subway rails. Apart from the 12 lines, there is also a maglev train line.
The maglev train line in Shanghai is the first line that ran in commercial mode in the world. It bears the mission of transportation, visit and travel. West starts from Longyang Road Station of Line 2, east to Shanghai Pudong International Airport. The whole line is about 30 km long and designed maximum operating speed is 430 km per hour.
The ticket cost is RMB 3 for the total length less than 6 km, RMB 4 for 6-16 km, RMB 5 for 16-26 km, RMB 6 for 26-36 km, RMB 7 for 36-46 km, RMB 8 for 46-56 km, RMB 9 for 56-66 km. If your subway fares within one month are more than RMB 70, you can get 10% discount for the remaining days of the same month. If you change to other lines, the cost depends on the shortest transfer between the two stations. Transfer to different transports within 90 minutes can get 0.5 yuan discount. So you’d better apply for a public transport IC card when in Shanghai.
