Shanghai Transportation Guide
This cool red double-decker bus will take you to most tourist attractions in the downtown of Shanghai. It stops at Shanghai Urban Planning Exhibition Hall, Shanghai Art Gallery, Nanjing Road Pedestrian Mall, Waibaidu Bridge, Bund Customs House, River Cruise Wharf, Shanghai Old Street, Yuyuan Garden, Tian Zi Fang, Xin Tian Di, Middle Huaihai Road and Shanghai Museum.
It's almost 3 a.m., and I am wide awake in a hotel room - I am in China for the second time! Five years ago my daughter and I came to visit my son and his wife, who were living in Nanjing. We had an exciting time, visiting Shanghai, Nanjing, Beijing, Chengdu, and Xian. That time we were visiting for four weeks - this time we have only half as much time.
In Shanghai public buses cost 1 yuan per trip for normal buses and 2 yuan per trip for the air-conditioned buses.
The public bus system is quite extensive, but the signs at bus stops are usually only labeled in Chinese. If you know Chinese or can get somebody to help you pick your route, the bus can be more convenient than the subway and cheaper than a cab.
For more info (in Chinese only) try checking the official website for transportation in Shanghai.

It is fast, amazingly smooth and quiet, and great value.
Besides the tourist ferries and cruises, ferries are also used as a simple mode of transportation in Shanghai.
Taking a ferry across the river fits in nicely with a walking tour of Shanghai. Two river-crossing ferries depart and arrive from Dongchang Lu (东昌路) in Pudong, which is only a 15 minute walk away from the Pearl Tower.
