Getting Around the World Expo 2010

The World Expo 2010 being held in Shanghai is comprised of 5 "zones" (A, B, C, D, and E).  There are, of course, various busses that will take you to the Expo entrance.  In addition, you can take the subway (Line 13) to enter.  There are only three stops on line 13:  The entrance is on Madang Road, where you will go through security and they will check your Expo ticket.  The first stop is just outside Zone D of the West Puxi side of the Expo.  The second stop is within Zone B of the East Pudong side of the Expo.
