Description

Jing'an Temple (simplified Chinese: 静安寺; traditional Chinese: 靜安寺; pinyin: Jìng'ān Sì) is the name of an interchange station between Lines 2 and 7 of the Shanghai Metro. This station is located in Jing'an District, below the historic Jing'an Temple and the Jiu Guang shopping mall. It is part of the initial section of Line 2 that opened from Zhongshan Park to Longyang Road that opened on 20 September 1999; the interchange with line 7 opened on 5 December 2009 as part of that line's initial section between Shanghai University and Huamu Road.There are shuttle buses between Jing'an Temple and Hongqiao or Pudong airports. The shuttle bus from Pudong leaves the airport as 'Airport Bus Line 2' towards the 'Airport City Terminal' which is the official name of the Jingan Temple shuttle bus station and costs 22 ¥ as of January 2015. The ride takes about half an hour from Hongqiao Airport and 45–60 minutes depending on traffic from Pudong Airport. From Pudong the bus is usually faster and more convenient than the subway connection.

Incidents

Thirteen people were injured in 2014 when an escalator connecting Line 2 and Line 7 malfunctioned. The upward-moving escalator's drive chain snapped during the morning rush hour, according to Shanghai Shentong Metro Group, the city's metro operator.
