Today, November 30th 2010, the second branch of Shanghai Metro Line 10 opens!
After passing Longxi Road station, the line now branches in two. There are new stops at Shanghai Zoo and Hongqiao Airport Terminal 1, and new interchange stations at Hongqiao Airport Terminal 2 and Hongqiao Railway Station.
Note that the free shuttle bus between Hongqiao Airport T1 and T2 is now discontinued. You’ll need to use Metro Line 10 to shuttle between the two terminals!
Hongqiao Airport Terminal 2 station is a “virtual interchange”, you’ll need a Shanghai Public Transportation Card to transfer free-of-charge between Line 2 and Line 10.
The opening times have also been extended on Line 10, with the last train of the day departing Hongqiao Railway Station at 10pm. You can find the first/last train times for any station on our interactive map, fully updated at www.exploreshanghai.com.
iPhone users, never fear! An update to our Explore Shanghai iPhone app is on its way to Apple, including not just the new line but awesome retina display graphics for iPhone 4 and iPod touch!
