SHANGHAI MAGLEV QUESTION

I heard somewhere a while back that the Maglev from Pudong Intl. Airport was being extended to link it to the World Expo site. Is this true? Or has it been changed to just a subway going to the Expo site?

Also, what ever happened to that Maglev that was being planned to link Shanghai and Hangzhou? I just haven't heard much about it...

FYI:

Shanghai's Metro Line No. 4 opens 
Last Updated(Beijing Time):2006-01-01 14:40

A Metro Line No. 4 train (above) is seen driving through Baoshan Road Station while a Metro Line No. 3 runs on another track yesterday morning.

Metro Line No. 4 went into operation yesterday, connecting the city's first three metro lines and providing a new link between Pudong and Puxi.

About 30,000 people took the line on the first day of operations, said the Shanghai Metro Operation Company.

The figure was far below the expected passenger flow of 150,000 people a day, but officials attributed it to the new line's late opening at 8:45am, well after the start of morning rush hour.

Starting today, the line will run on a normal schedule with the first trains heading out at around 6am.

Metro operators also noted that many companies were closed yesterday for the New Year, which cut into passenger numbers.

Besides, many commuters still didn't know about the new line and are unfamiliar with its route.

Despite the low number of commuters, many said they are thrilled the line is finally up and running.

"It will be easy for me to go to work and I won't be delayed by ground traffic congestion," said Hong Yan, who works on Jiangsu Road.

What Shanghai's metro station need is some color

By the way, does Shanghai have a smart card system similar to HK's Octopus card?

Yes! It is called Shanghai Transportation Card. You can use this card on Metro, Maglev Train, Buses, Taxis and Ferries. You can also use this card on nearby cities' buses and taxis like Hangzhou. The Card costs 120 Yuan, with 20 Yuan Deposit.

I think the Shanghai line 4 station's color is perfect. White makes it feel more comfortable and spacious. I think all the stations on line 4 should be like this color with only strips of color determining which station your in. That will creat unity of line 4. Sometimes I think the HKG MTR has too much color, most are nice but some are just hideous like the TST station yellow and black..bad combo or the Yau Ma Tei one.

Looks good, it reminds me of HK's subway. How many lines is that now, and how many km? How many in construction?
