Basically there are more scheduled flights ( international or domestic ) at Terminal 2 than Terminal 1. But you still need to double check the right terminal you are going to use. Both T2 and T1 are used for domestic and international arrivals and departures. Different air companies use different terminals.

Third Floor for Departure (T1 & T2)

The departure halls ( both T1 & T2) where you fly out from Shanghai are on the third floor.

Both Maglev and Metro on the Second Floor

Both Maglev and Metro are on the second floor in the mid-area of the 700-meter long corridor connecting T1 and T2. So if you are going to take Maglev, you should go to the middle part of the long corridor connecting the two terminals. If you arrive at Shanghai Pudong Airport by Maglev, you find yourself on the second floor between the long corridor linking the two terminals.

The Metro Line 2 is perched on the middle of the long corridor linking the two terminals. Metro Line 2 connects Shanghai Pudong International Airport with the downtown and other parts of Shanghai. So you can easily take the metro from the Pudong airport to the city or from the city to the airport.

Taking Subway Line 2 from Pudong Airport to Hongqiao Airport Shanghai takes one and half hours at the ticket price of 15 Yuan.

Remark:  If you are going to take metro line 2 from Pudong airport to the downtown or vice versa, you have to get off at the station of Guanglan Road (广兰路) and interchange for Pudong airport or downtown direction.
