The Shanghai maglev is a bit of a white elephant. It is nice to get to the airport in under 10 minutes from Longyang Lu but it still takes 45 minutes to an hour to get to Longyang Lu from downtown and at that point so long as Line 2 is still operating to PVG it's the best option. Only time the maglev's worth it for what it costs is the two or three trips between when Line 2 stops running to PVG and the maglev stops running at 9:30.
