Shanghai Pudong Airport transfer to Pudong hotel

Hi there, my family and I (2 adults, 2 young children) are coming to Shanghai in May and saying at Marriott Union Square, Pudong (above Dong Chang Rd Metro station).

Initially we thought we would just get a taxi straight from airport to hotel but I have read that taxis are quite small and may not be able to accommodate the whole family plus all of our luggage (3 suitcases, 4 hand luggage). Is this correct?

Then we had a quote for a private transfer which was NZ $444 which seems ridiculously expensive.

So we wondered if we might try getting the Maglev train instead as it seems so much cheaper and much faster, to Longyang Rd and then taxi from there (not so keen on trying to get all our luggage and 2 children safely onto the metro for last stage of journey). Can anyone please comment on whether you think this is a good plan with the two young ones, or would it be better, and possible, to taxi whole way? Also, if we did get the Maglev train, roughly how long to taxi Longang Rd to Dong Chang Rd by taxi? And roughly how much? Will we all fit in one taxi with our luggage?

Any views and advice much appreciated. Thanks in advance.

The regular taxi is not big enough for your family. There are small "van" taxi (was introduced for Expo) and regular van from Dazhong. You may ask the staff at taxi stand to call one for you (we had luck one time).

Taxi fare from longyan rd station to your hotel costs about 35 rmb.

If you do not fit in one taxi at the airport, you will not fit at the Maglev station either. The taxis are no smaller at the airport. You need 2 taxis, unless you take the subway for the balance.

If you take one taxi is about 160-180 RMB from Pu Dong international airport to your hotel which is about 25-30 USD. Just print your hotel name with address in Chinese and show taxi driver.

If you take metro from airport to Dong Chang road you should take line two. It will cost 1 USD per person.

If you hire a private car normally with seven seats reasonable car cost from 50-65USD. Hope this information can help you little bit with your travel in Shanghai.

If you take maglev then take taxi maglev cost 40rmb/person which is about 7 USD/person . From Long Yang road to Dong Chang road cost around 35-40 rmb which is about 6-7 USD again for one taxi.
