TRANSPORTATION


Shanghai has an extensive public transport system, largely based on metros, buses and taxis. We do not encourage visitors to drive in Shanghai.

Shanghai's rapid transit system, the Shanghai Metro, incorporates both subway and light railway lines and extends to every core urban district as well as neighbouring suburban districts. The fare depends on the length of travel distance starting from 3 RMB.

Shanghai also has the world's most extensive network of urban bus routes, with nearly one thousand bus lines, operated by numerous transportation companies. The system includes the world's oldest trolleybus system. Bus fare normally costs 2 RMB.

Taxis are plentiful in Shanghai. The base fare is currently 14 RMB (inclusive of a 1 RMB fuel surcharge; 18 RMB between 23:00 and 05:00) which covers the first 3 kilometres. Additional kilometres cost 2.5 RMB each (3.3 RMB between 23:00 and 05:00).

Tips on Taxis: You won't need to bargain and the driver will use the meter. If the driver doesn't use the meter, you should insist that he stops and get another taxi. After you pay the fare, wait for the receipt to be printed and take it with you. This has the taxi's number so if you have any complaints, or happen to forget something in the car, you can call the central number to report it. This can be convenient for forgotten purchases in the trunk.
