Can I take maglev train from Pudong Airport to bullet train that goes to Suzhou?

Hi Robert,

The Maglev train can not take you to the bullet train station directly. After getting of at Longyang Road Station, you can take a taxi or subway line 2 then change to line 4 at Shiji Dadao (世纪大道站) (about 35mins) to Shanghai Train Station to take bullet train to Suzhou. Shanghai Hongqiao Train Station also operates bullet train to Suzhou. It's further than Shanghai Train Station. You can get there by subway line 2 (about 50mins).
