Using technology purchased from Germany, construction of the Shanghai Maglev began in 2001, and by the time the project was completed two and a half years later, it had racked up a $1.2 billion price tag.
If you’re planning to ride the Shanghai Maglev to or from the airport, you’ll have to get on or off at the Longyang Road Station in the outskirts of Shanghai and switch to the subway or hail a taxi from there. If you want to know more about the Shanghai Maglev project and the technology behind the train, spend a few minutes browsing the Shanghai Maglev Museum, located within the Longyang Road Station.
