Shanghai Subway Line 4
Metro Line 4
Shanghai metro line 4 is the only ring line in local metro network. The 'C-shaped' line from Damuqiao Rd. in Puxi (west of Huangpu River) Area to Lancun Rd. in Pudong (east of Huangpu River) New Area first opened in 2005. The whole ring has been completed and in operation since December of 2007.

Subway line 4 totals 33.6 kilometers (20.9 miles), passing 26 stations, including some at famous sights such as Indoor Stadium, Stadium, Nanpu Bridge, Century Avenue, Shanghai Railway Station and Zhongshan Park.

Now Line 4 shares a section of subway line and nine stations (Baoshan Rd., Shanghai Railway Station (North Square), Zhongtan Rd., Zhenping Rd., Caoyang Rd., Jinshajiang Rd., Zhongshan Park, West Yan'an Rd. and Hongqiao Rd.) with Line 3. However, it will become a circle of itself in the future.
See metro maps for reference.

Yes, you got to go out of the metro station, but don’t worry, it’s very close and there are some signs leading you there.

Actually, the nearest metro station is China Art Museum Station, metro line 8. The distance is just 0.3 miles.
If you wanna take line 4, the nearest metro station is Luban Road Station. This distance is about 2.7 miles. :)

But there is not a Changyang Road metro station. The nearest one is Ningguo Road station. From PVG, you can take metro line 2 to Century Avenue, where transfer to line 4 and get off at Dalian Road. There you can easily transfer to line 2 and get off at Ningguo Road. Leave through exit 5 and you can easily walk there.

The New Expo Center is around 6mi from Changyang Road. You can take a taxi to reach, which is much more convenient than bus and metro.

The MTR fare from PVG to Changyang Road is CNY7 and the cab fare from Changyang Road to the New Expo Center is around CNY30.
