Shanghai Metro System

The underground train and the light rail are very efficient and inexpensive. Most metro lines operates from 5.30am to 11pm. The street sign system is easy to the station entrances, which are marked by a red “M” logo. All trains and stations are signed in English and stops are announced in both Chinese and English over an intercom when the train pulls in.

Fares are distance based from RMB3-RMB11. You can use a transportation card or buy single tickets from the ticket vending machines or at a ticket window at the subways stations. Shanghai uses a “one ticket network” which means free interchange between all lines without purchase of another ticket. There are also one-day ticket for RMB 18 and 3-day ticket for RMB 45.

There are now 12 metro lines operating in Shanghai. The station and time table for each lines:
Line 1, Line 2, Line 3, Line 4, Line 5, Line 6, Line 7, Line 8, Line 9, Line 10, Line 11, Line 13
