I've never understood that it stops at Longyang road. Why wasn't it built at Century Avenue? If you step out there, you see modern Shanghai. To achieve this now, there has to be a tunnel under Century Park lake. The Maglev coming out of the ground at the Science and Technology museum would be quite fitting.

It could go on into another tunnel and cross the Huangpu river, towards Shanghai railway station. This is practically a straight line.

From there it could go on (still practically straight) towards Shanghai West railway station, where it has to bend to the south underground. This could be a 250km/h bend (3km radius) towards the crossing S20-G42. From there it can go south towards the airport, next to the outer ring road. Nearing the airport it needs to do some low speed bends through 1km radii, ending up next to the other railways.

All of this seems quite doable at this moment in time. This route is quite high-speed because most is quite straight. It would be possible to have different schedules, with some trains stopping at all stations, some only at the two airports. I would estimate the latter to take around 15 minutes, given the bends and the current duration of 7:20 to Longyang station.

I would be curious to know if this route has ever been investigated.

It appears fares are calculated on the shortest route avalaible, even if it implies a lot more transfers. I've glimpsed a pic of the map at Dishini (Disneyland) station, from which the fares to several stations on line 8 are as follows:
Up to Zhonghua Yishu Gong (China Art Museum): 5 yuan (renminbi)
Xizang Nanlu: 6 yuan
Lujiabang Lu: 5 yuan
Laoximen and points North: 6 yuan

Weird, no? Actually the shortest route from Dishini to Lujiabang Lu is line 11 to Luoshan Lu, line 16 to Longyang Lu, line 2 to Shiji Dadao (Century Avenue) and line 9, even if it's possible to do the trip with only one transfer (at Dongfang Tiyu Zhongxin a.k.a. Oriental Sports Center to line 8).

Shanghai does not want to call the new trolley line a BRT, but instead coin this new term called "Medium Capacity Transit".

Busy Metro station gets a makeover
Shanghai Daily Excerpt
February 9, 2017


Workers put some final touches to Shanghai’s renovated People’s Square Metro Station as the major transfer station is set to open to passengers on Saturday. — Wang Rongjiang

PEOPLE’S Square Metro Station is about to become more user-friendly.

From Saturday, people will find it more convenient and quicker at the city’s biggest transferring Metro Station as a result of more escalators and signs being installed.

Shendu Highway station on Line 8 and Zhangjiang Hi-tech Park station on Line 2 will also reopen — from today in both cases. (Zhangjiang Hi-tech Park station was originally scheduled to reopen from Saturday.)

Metro Lines 1 and 8 at People’s Square had suspended operations from January 17 because of the renovation project, during which trains on the lines did not stop at the station. Line 2, which shares the station, was not affected by the revamp.

Eight escalators have been added to the station — four to the hall of Line 1 and four to that of Line 8. Some staircases have been removed and some turnstiles changed.

“The adjustments are set up to increase evacuation efficiency of the station,” Huang Yufei, assistant director of the Metro station told Shanghai Daily. “It will also help to avoid conflicting flow of traffic on staircases as the escalators have a clearer guidance on direction.”

An elevator has also been set up in the hall in Metro Line 1 for the first time.

“Line 1 is the oldest line of the city,” Huang said. “Before, disabled passengers or people carrying large luggage would have to contact the station staffers and walk to a different place to use an elevator. With the new elevator installed in the hall, passengers can easily use the elevator themselves.”

A number of major changes happening to the Shanghai Metro.

To fulfill the government's goal of reducing headway in all downtown Lines to below 3 min is well underway now that the supplementary rolling stock is arriving. For example:

Line 1 will remove the short turn at Shanghai Railways station making the entire line to operate at 2 min and 44 sec headways

Line 9 will expand from 46 6 car sets to 50 sets and min headways in the urban section were reduced from 3 mins to 2 min 30 secs.

Line 11 will expand from 66 6 car sets to 70 sets and min headways in the urban section were reduced to 2 min.

In terms of construction, this year the Light Metro for Line 8 South, Phase 3 Extension of Line 9 and Line 17 will open. This will add 55km of new metro to Shanghai bringing the length of the Shanghai Metro to 643 km and making it the first subway in the world to break 600km in length.

Actually Beijing will the the first one to hit 900km and 1000km. Shanghai is only shooting for 850km by 2020. With Beijing gunning for 1000km for the same year. HOWEVER, I do belive Beijing's number does include the Pinghu and New Airport Lines which seem to be more like commuter rail lines.
