Maglev - Magnetic Levitation train Shanghai

The Maglev Train, a magnetic levitation train, connects Pudong airport with metro Longyang station - Tel : (21) 2890 777 - peak speed of 431 km/h. It runs daily every 20 minutes between 0900-1730, linking the airport with Longyang Lu metro station in Pudong, from where you’ll need to catch a connecting cab to your final destination (Tickets sold on this site include the transfer from metro station to hotel). Transrapid, the German firm that developed the system, describes the Maglev as "the first fundamental innovation in the field of railway technology since the invention of the railway." Magnets are the attraction. First, powerful magnets lift the entire train about 10 millimeters above the special track, called a guideway, since it mainly directs the passage of the train. Other magnets provide propulsion, and braking, and the speeds - up to 500 kph in test runs.

Various extension plans have been proposed. In January 2006, the Shanghai Urban Planning Administrative Bureau proposed an extension to Hongqiao Airport via Shanghai South Railway Station and the Expo 2010 site, with a continuation towards Hangzhou. If built, the line would allow transferring between the airports, which are located 55 km apart, in about 15 minutes. The plan for the extension to Hangzhou was approved by the central government in February 2006, with construction set to start by the end of 2006 for completion by 2010. Info on Maglev on Wikipedia
