yes, currently only connect Pudong airport to downtown. Another line will start building this year to connect it with other airport (Hongqiao airport) and another city, Hangzhou, 180kms away.
it's about 30km long and take 7.5 minutes. The fare is RMB50 one way (about 6$), RMB80 two-way ($10$)

The stations looks very nice, and the city also. The train looks like a box , but it's not bad

OMG Why did they put seats in it? You're there before you manage to make yourself comfortable.

I took the train once. The whole experience is to accelerate to 430 km/hour, stay for a couple of seconds, and decelerate to zero. The seats in the picture are actually first-class seats but I really don't think there's any difference between frist-class and other classes for a short trip.

could any of the chinese guys, especially the ones from shanghai post news about the construction to Hangzhou?
If they really want to start contstruction this year, the construction sites have to be marked already? no?
Is the route already fixed?
Any news??????

Ive seen most of those before, but I just noticed something. Is there no emergency walkways on the side? Doesnt seem that safe if something happens to the maglev on those elevated structures and people get stuck

These are the best pictures I've seen for the SMT. I can't wait to have a chance to ride on it and the far seems really cheap. For $6 I'll probably ride it for fun.


I noticed you posted pictures of Pudong, does the SMT go into the heart of Pudong? Can I easily walk from the Jin Mao Building to an SMT station to the airport or is it much further away than that?

Much further. And I'm not sure how close the line will get when extended, since the expo area is a couple kilometres from downtown.

I love the way it snakes so gracefully into the distance.

In 50 years they are going to cover whole continents.

Bring it on!

Interesting. Hopefully it will get extended right up to the SWFC or maybe even beyond that. Thanks for the explanation.

No, not up to the SWFC. At least, there is no ROW for a maglev line through downtown right now. While it is possible they add a new station, they have only stated an additional station at the expo center, which is across the river and a few blocks north.

Wow... Darn proud of Shanghai! Tokyo planned subway seems big but it is only 232 km, is Shanghai really going to have 800km of subway lines?
