Our ExploreShanghai metro map is great for finding stations and plotting routes, but what if you’re away from the computer? We now provide a handy PDF version of the Shanghai metro map in A4 size, which you can print out and take with you on your trip.

The map neatly fits on one page, and although its only 105KB, it’s high resolution so it will look great when printed out.

    The pdf download link in metro map seems incorrect, it is “” currently (404 not found), which should be “” here.

    It’s quite OK except the red font “Shanghai Railway Station” is not every clear while line1 shows red also.

    requested you to add station names in Chinese as well. It will help for reaching to station by taxi as taxi drivers dont understand english. and shanghai maps which are sold in shops are too big to handle.

    Hi! Thank you for the map! To include the names in chinese characters would be great. This way it is easier to ask for information just pointing the map 🙂
