Hong Kong, China Public Transportation

Transportation has played a momentous role in accelerating the pace of Hong Kong's industrial evolution. It is globally acclaimed for its strong and efficient network of public transport known for its affordability and reliability. You can easily access any corner of this city through buses, taxis, tramways, ferries, or the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) system.

Buses and Minibuses

Buses are the easiest and economical modes of transport in Hong Kong. Most of the buses are air-conditioned and are double-deckers. The bus routes cover almost all corners of the city. The destination point is shown on the front of all buses for ease of identification. If you intend to pay the bus fare by cash, please ensure you carry the exact change since no change will be refunded. Octopus Card is the most convenient method of payment for any rides on buses, minibuses, some taxis, trams, ferries, and MTR.

Minibuses also operate in Hong Kong but cover specific routes that usual bus services can't cover. The payment conditions remain the same. Minibuses can accommodate approximately 16 passengers and offer a very frequent service. There are two types of Minibuses: Green Minibuses (GMBs) and Public Light Buses (PLBs) or Red Minibuses. The former has a fixed route, and the latter have no fixed routes and allow passengers to get on or off at any point along the route.

Taxis

Hong Kong has many taxis in most areas, except few very remote places. Hail one on the street or book them over the phone. Taxis are one of the cheapest mode of commutes at Hong Kong. Find red taxis or urban cabs that cover most the city, green taxis or New Territories cabs that cover the northeastern and northwestern areas, and blue taxis or Lantau cabs that operate on Lantau Island and Chek Lap Kok.

A fare chart is displayed inside taxis.

Mass Transit Railway (MTR)

The Mass Transit Railway or Rapid Transit System has played a significant role in upgrading the overall transportation experience in Hong Kong. It is one of the most popular and convenient modes of public transports and has access to all major parts of the city – Hong Kong Island, Kowloon, the New Territories, and Lantau Island.

MTR has 10 lines with around 80-85 stations. You can find services every 2-5 minutes from 6:00 am until 1:00 am daily. You can either buy a single journey ticket or a Tourist Day Pass for unlimited rides within the same day. You can also use your Octopus card for a discounted rate.

Ferry

Hong Kong ferries not only act as a great channel of transport, but also offers sightseeing tours to all visitors. Star Ferry (operated by The Star Ferry Company) has been one of the most reliable sources of ferry transport in Hong Kong for over a century now. It runs across the picturesque Victoria Harbor, and its routes include Tsim Sha Tsui to Central and Tsim Sha Tsui to Wan Chai. It operates from 6:30 am until 11:30 pm, however the hours are a bit different for Sundays and public holidays.
