Simply put, I can not think of less convenient place to hail a long distance bus.

Furthermore, it is really only 5 minutes closer than Jing'an Temple, Xujiahui, Hongqiao Airport, etc. This is due to the nature of Shanghai's highway network. LJZ is isolated and prone to traffic problems. Don't get me wrong; I enjoyed living there, but I don't think staying there would do much for the OP.
Let's calculate the route, at 9:30pm, it's possible to miss the sub, then have to take bus shuttle or taxi, Lujiazui is the nearest place away from PVG comparing other places in Puxi. It takes 10-20 minutes by bus or taxi to Shanghai Railway Station, RMB2 by bus and RMB20 about by bus. There are Yan'an East Road tunnel, Fuxing East Road tunel and several bridges connected with Puxi and Pudong within or near LLZ area, the traffic jam would only apppear at peak time, impossible at late evening. It's also the nearest place back to the Pudong airport.
