Do we need cash to get on? 2 yuan each?

Thanks for confirming that the direct bus from the SHA domestic terminal (T2) to PVG doesnít involve an X Ray screen or security search.
Is it about 30 yuan each? We will need to get some currency out (was way too easy to spend on our last visit!)

Where does SHA T1 come into play? Are you flying into PVG and out of SHA T1?

If so, I'd be strongly tempted to simply take a taxi or Didi the entire way. Neither bus 1 nor Line 2 serves SHA T1.

We're flying into SHA T1 and need to get to T2 in order to get the bus to PVG.
Metro isn't an option full stop as the security would prohibit us taking our bags.
We are not interested in taking a taxi (saw a car overturn right in front of us - spectacularly - yesterday. My heart still races remembering it. That did not dispel my anti car position.)
I understand there is a T1 to T2 bus service and that it might be 2 yuan. Not certain if a security check is needed to board it. I'd guess no.

Yeah I can understand your aversion to taxis. A CEO died just last Tuesday on the way to SHA, though it may have been a private car rather than a taxi.

Anyway, the courtesy bus has no security check. However, it only runs every 30 minutes so you'll need to factor that into your schedule.

​​​​​​...and the number 1 bus runs every 20 minutes. One would think they sync schedules, but I wouldn't bet on it.
