New rail connection between Pudong International Airport (PVG) and Shanghai city centre via Metro Line No. 2.
The new Maglev Demonstration Line, one of the fastest trains in the world, now connects Pudong International Airport (PVG) to Longyang Station on Line No. 2 of the Shanghai Metro. Once at Longyang Road, Metro Line No. 2 can be taken to major destinations in both Pudong New Area and throughout Puxi, or the area west of the Huangpu River that includes Shanghai city centre.
Construction is currently underway for Merto Line No. 2 to reach Hongqiao Airport (SHA), which is used primarily for domestic flights. This new convenience, set to open in 2006, will mean that a traveler that lands from an international flight at PVG will be able to connect to a domestic flight at Hongqiao using an all rail journey with a single transfer at Longyang Road Station.
