431kmph and it costs 40 Yuan (divide by 8 roughly for USD) for a one way trip if you have an airplane ticket, and 50 if you don't. I think it is 80 Yuan for a return ticket regardless.opium said:Wow Is it really a magnetic levitation train? I didnt know Shanghai had one . I didnt even know any country had it .

German technology but China is the first country in the world to put Maglev for public use.opium said:Wow Is it really a magnetic levitation train? I didnt know Shanghai had one . I didnt even know any country had it . How fast does this sucker go?
It is only 27 km, or something like that?? not really sure.. as for being faster than a taxi, if you start at the People's Square underground station, and catch line 2 to the maglev station, it will take you, about 30mins ( maybe +/- 5 depending how long you have to wait for the maglev at the station) to get to the airport, while in the taxi it will take about 50 min-1 hr if there is absoloutely no traffic.AcesHigh said:it seems pretty cheap!! Only 5 dollars. How long is the trip in km?? Anyway, probably is cheaper than a taxi from the airport to downtown... and much faster of course... and cooler!
