So if you’re new to the city and planning to visit the Pudong and Puxi regions or you need an app that will find you the fastest route to work, download Shanghai Metro for free today.


- The bilingual map is easy to read in both Simplified Chinese and English.
- Scroll and zoom around the map and tap any station for more information.
- Journeys on the Shanghai Metro are simple using the app’s route planner. Enter a start and end station and the app will give you the fastest route. If a more simple route is available the app will also provide an alternative with fewer changes.
- The app works offline so no problem if you lose your Internet or WIFI connection.
- Every route you plan gives a summary of helpful information - including how long you will be travelling, how many stations you will pass through and the changes you will need to make.
- Which metro station is the closest? The blue Locate Me button in the corner of the map will show you which station you are closest to and in the search bar you will see the top three nearby stations.
- With Walking Routes you can see the shortcuts between two stations where it is closer to walk than use the metro.
- Favourite the journeys you use often to view them again when on the move.

A the job done

Excellent basic functions. Clear interface to tell you where stations are in Mandarin and Pinyin, easy to use 'directions' functions which tells you how long it will take from one station to another. This does not take into account walking between lines when changing. A useful addition would be to allow passengers to see first and last trains, the intervals that trains are arriving, live train times and delays, station closures etc. It also takes a very long time to update when new lines are open. Line 13 had been fully open for months before they released an update. Overall fine for getting from A to B.

Thank you for the great feedback, these are features we can definitely look at for future updates. Thanks again.

Great tool!

This is a great app, it is well thought out and has a very clear, intuitive interface. It would be very helpful for veteran expats exploring new areas of the city and tourists in need of a helping hand. All we need now, is a map update to take into account the new stations that have popped up this year!

Thank you reviewing. I have passed on your review and we will raise a ticket to update the map.

Great app; less encouraging customer service!

This is a really useful app with clear graphics and easy to use. The regular interruptions, at start-up, of ads for the Hong Kong Metro app is annoying, simply because there is no way to stop it (even when, like me, you also have the HKM app installed).

The most frustrating thing, however, is that this app really needs updating, to show the new lines on Shanghai Metro. I used the publishers' web site, to send in an enquiry, but they haven't bothered to respond. Meanwhile, I am having to use a different app, whose graphics are nowhere near as clear, nor the route planner as intuitive to use, simply because their map is up-to-date.
