Shanghai has an extensive public transport system, largely based on buses, trolley buses, taxis, and a rapidly expanding metro system. All of these public transport tools can be accessed using the Shanghai Public Transportation Card. The Shanghai Metro rapid-transit system and elevated light rail has twelve lines at present and extends to every core urban district as well as neighboring suburban districts such as Songjiang and Minhang. It is one of the fastest-growing transportation systems in the world.
