Use Metroman App for best transit and connections.

Buy Shanghai red mereo card which can be used at all other metros in mainland.

Bargain Transport
Apr 2021
Of course, it can be crowded at times, it's mass transport, what else were you expecting? I have never seen any mess on the platforms or on the trains and some of the bathrooms can be a wee bit whiffy but they are no where near the worst toilets I have used.

Shanghai Metro is well organized
Feb 2021 • Solo
I really like to use the subway in Shanghai. It is safe and well organized. From Pudong Airport you can take the Maglev with the subway card.

Connection at longyang road easy to manage. Download a subway plan.

Best subway system in the world
Feb 2021 • Business
We live in Shanghai. The subway is one of the best things about the city. You can get everywhere. Totally safe. Unfortunately it does not run 24 hours per day. Easy instructions in English and Chinese.

During rush hour many lines are very crowded so you will stand and may even find it hard to get on.

VERY inexpensive for what you get.

Title says it all. This really is the best metro in the world. Everything is clean (relatively) and the metro trains are always on time. Fast, cheap, and a safe way to get around.

Best way to get around Shanghai
Oct 2020
Safe. Efficient. Well managed. Fastest way to get around the city. Very affordable. Generally clean & well kept. Be prepared for morning rush hour traffic as well as rainy day traffic. Attendants generally very helpful, but not all speak English. Ticket machines work well and do have English option. If you purchase a Metro card, be sure to return it for your deposit back. Metro card credit can be paid for by Alipay, WeChat, or cash. Train lines, train signs, and train markings are all color coordinated to specific line for example Metro 2 is green so all items related to Metro 2 will be in green color. Wear mask on train. If you are out late or very early morning, check first/last train times for your stop, Metro does not run 24/7. Metro card can be used on Meglav, bus, ferry, and taxi - its a general purpose card.

Travel around Shanghai

Using the Metro in Shanghai is great.
Easy if you have AliPay
Certain stations get very busy.
Some people will push on the metro and invade your personal space.
