Metro lines connected to the hub

PASSENGERS can directly get to Hongqiao International Airport's Terminal via the eastern extension of Metro Line 2.

This is the first time a city subway line has connected to an airport.

Line 2 is also expected to connect the city's two airports, Hongqiao and Pudong, before the World Expo 2010 begins on May 1.

According to Shanghai Tunnel Engineering Design Institute, chief designer of the extension line, train doors on both sides can be opened to let passengers out quickly when the subway arrives at the Terminal 2 Station.

Line 2 operates until 10:50pm.

Passengers whose flights take off or land at the old terminal can take free shuttle buses when getting off the subway.

Another subway, Metro Line 10, will have a stop at Terminal 2 by October.

Lines 2 and 10 will also have stops connecting with the hub's railway station by the time the station opens in July. In the long term, the two subways will also connect with the planned Lines 5, 17 and 20 at the railway station.
