As Shanghai is the closest city to Hangzhou, at about 174 kilometers away, most people travel between the two cities by train. Shanghai's Hongqiao Railway Station is in a transport hub in the city's west part together with the airport, long-distance bus station and subways. The transport hub is about 15 kilometers from the People's Square at the city's center place and about 57 kilometers from Pudong International Airport.

The station is the city's key terminal for high-speed railway lines, including an inter-city railway between Shanghai and Nanjing City in Jiangsu Province and a line between Shanghai and Hangzhou City in Zhejiang Province. The transport hub has the largest underground project in the city, connecting West Bus Station, High-speed Railway Station, East Bus Station and the Terminal 2 of Hongqiao Airport from west to east.

There is a one-kilometer-long underground transit level linking the five parts in the hub. It takes about 15 minutes to walk from the Hongqiao International Airport Terminal 2 to the Long-Distance Bus Station in the West Station through the transit level.
About 80 of the new "G" trains ("G" stands for "Gaotie", which means top-level high-speed train in Chinese) will arrive at and depart from the Hongqiao hub from 6:12am to 9:45pm every day. The station, with 30 tracks and 30 platforms, is designed to handle 80 million passengers annually by 2030.

Passengers will find restaurants and stores on the third floor after security checks on the second level. Passengers can also find more restaurants, convenience stores, banks, automatic teller machines, book stores and retail stores between Hongqiao Railway Station and East Station on B1, the arrival level.
