Since Shanghai Metro Line 9 opened last year, the stretch from Guilin Road to Yishan Road has been served only by a shuttle bus.
No more: as of 28 December 2008, you can now take a Line 9 metro train directly to/from Yishan Road, where you can interchange with Line 3 and Line 4.
The Explore Shanghai metro map has been updated to show this new connection. If you drag between two stations to plot a route, you’ll now see the new faster times.
Update January 2010 Line 9 was extended to Century Avenue in Pudong

Unluckily, there is only one rail track under operation between Guilin Rd and Yishan Rd due to technical problems during construction, which seriously influenced the interval timing.

When will be connected to Xu Jia Hui?
It is now in trial running 09:00-16:00 daily to Pu Dong, Century Avenue, both directions, expecting full operation after Spring Festival 2010, eg, March 2010 – before Shanghai Expo starts. It’s quite suitable to go from Song Jiang western suburbs to Pu Dong quickly without interchange.
NB -the full schedule daily runs from Yishan Road Sta.
