By Bus ---------------------------------------------
With few exceptions, Shanghai buses are very old and uncomfortable, primarily standing-room-only, and extremely inconvenient. Often you'll have to change buses several times to get where you're going. During busy traffic hours, buses are unbelievably crowded. On most buses, the fare is Y0.50 for any stop on the line.
One exception to the above is the double-decker bus running down Huaihai Lu through the old French Concession. It's a pleasant ride, as there are many seats on these vehicles imported from Hong Kong. If you sit on the top deck, you have a great view over the many compound walls at the beautiful old Shanghai buildings that line the thoroughfare. Fares on this bus line will run you a few yuan.
