This was an adequate service. We were promptly met at PVG airport and escorted to the MagLev Train. The ride was quick and uneventful. Unfortunately, after arriving, we had to be transferred to another taxi cab for our ride to the hotel. This took approximately 25+ minutes additionally. In all, a taxi ride from the onset would have been faster overall and with less cost. Before booking the MagLev, I recommend checking how far the station is from your hotel. Again, the train was quick and reliable. Some additional concerns need to be addressed if you have a lot of luggage is this was a problem getting on and off the train. We ultimately decided to take a return taxi back to the PVG airport instead of taking the train. It was much faster for us this way.
Interesting to use the Maglev train. The transfers were well organized and we were expected both at Airport and at Hotel with clear signs. However the transfers Maglev Station/ Hotel/ Maglev Station were done in a very old vehicle. A bit expensive when you see the train fares and taxi costs in Shanghai, but good for the first time in town.
This was really a pain havng to haul our luggage on and off the train. Jennifer, the girl that picked us up was no help at all and she kept runining ahead of us. Almost lost her a couple times.
It was a 20 minute ride from the train station to our hotel at Tomorrow Square. As the car ride to the airport is only an hour, we didn't save any time taking the train. We opted to skip the train on our return, which was far easier. The guy that picked us up for the retrun trip was very nice and helpful.
