Shanghai Metro Map 2021
One thing you’ll notice as you look at the Shanghai metro map is how complex it is. The city is so large, there are a crazy number of subway lines!
Don’t be afraid. You’ll only end up using a few of these metro lines.
And in some cases, it’s probably better to use your phone in China to access maps to give you directions.
The Shanghai Subway Map above shows the most up-to-date subway lines in the city (as of 2021), although this is constantly changing with new construction.
Thankfully, the city offers an official Shanghai metro website in English that you can visit to check for any changes that have happened.
