Pudong Airport to Wuxi, A Comparison of Bus & Train Transportation

To transport from Shanghai Pudong Airport to Wuxi, you have three options. Read carefully for their advantages and shortcomings before you make the decision.

  1. By Taxi
  2. We don’t recommend you to transport from Shanghai Pudong Airport to Wuxi by taxi as this will cost you a lot. If you are travelling with large baggage or you are traveling with 2-3 other people or it’s too early/late to take bus or train, you can consider this. A rough estimate of cost would be RMB 600-800 Yuan (for reference only, I am not a taxi driver ^_^). Driving time from Pudong Airport to Wuxi is about 2 hours and a half.

  3. By Long Distance Bus
  4. This is the most comfortable and economical way. You can take bus for Wuxi on the second floor of Pudong Airport Parking Lot. You can ask the airport’s information center for detailed address if this is not clear.
    Shortcoming is there are only a limited times of buses. If you are arriving Pudong Airport in the early morning or late night, there will be no bus available.
