Hello Laspinall6:)

It is a good long bus ride from the airport to the city centre. I dont know exactly how long. An hour at least.
But if u are going from the city to the airport, be sure to check exactly which airport u are flying from. I made the mistake of going to the one where most of the international flights go from, only to find that I should have been at the other one.

Pudong Airport to City Center is about 1++ hour by coach and car.
For Hong Qiao Airport, its nearer. Around 20 minutes.

Be aware of the heavy traffic jam during peak time. Even though it would normally only take about 1++ hours to reach to the city centre from the airport during non-peak time, we were stuck in the heavy traffic jam for more than 3 hours even though we left the airport at 5.30pm! Cars were moving so slowly that it felt like ages just to reach to the city centre even though it's only 30km away.
