At first, Shanghai's traffic may seem chaotic and confusing but in time most expatriates adjust to its fast pace. High maintenance costs and congestion in the city centre make driving yourself rather unusual for expatriates. However, the city boasts the world's largest public transportation system which is the best way to get to know the city. Shanghai's eight subway lines and numerous city buses have connections all over the city and taxis are also a convenient alternative. It is advisable to factor in enough time when getting around in Shanghai, regardless of your transportation choice. The Shanghai Public Transportation Card, which can be bought in every metro station, allows access to most forms of public transport.
