The Huangpu River running through Shanghai, divides the city into two parts - Pudong New District (east of the river) and Puxi Area (west of the river). The three islands of Chongming, Changxing, and Hengsha under the jurisdiction of Shanghai are separated from the main by the Yangtze River. As a result, ferries play a very important role in the city's transportation.
Huangpu River Ferry
As many bridges, tunnels, and subways are built, people have much more choices when traveling across the Huangpu River. However, ferryboats with 100-year's history are still popular choices for pedestrians and cyclists because of their convenience and low price.
At present, there are in total 19 ferry lines serving nearly 40 ferry stations along both sides of the Huangpu River, providing links between Pudong and Puxi. A pedestrian pays CNY0.5 on common ferryboats and CNY2 on air-conditioned ones. The fare for a cyclist is CNY1.3 on common ferryboats and CNY2.8 on air-conditioned ones. The price for a motor cyclist is CNY1.5 on common ferryboats and CNY3 on air-conditioned ones. Motor vehicles cost more, usually CNY10 - 20. Shanghai Public Transportation Card can be used on Huangpu River Ferryboats.

Shanghai Sightseeing Ferry
Where could I find a timetable on a ferry from Wusong port to Hengsha island?
I can see above is a query on a ferry to Chongming Island. Is it the same situation? Is easier go from Baoshang port?
I am planning to buy Maglev ticket that provides me 1 day transfer + 24 hours metro pass. Will that pass work on ferries also?
Where can I find the ferry timetable and cost for the 3 ports on Chongming island?
