Buses

All double-decker and coach buses have their final destinations marked in English and Chinese on the front top panel.  Routes and fares are fixed. Exact change is required.  Octopus cards are accepted.

 

Minibuses

Taxis

Taxis come in different colours, depending on their area of service: red on Hong Kong Island and Kowloon; green in the New Territories; and blue on Lantau Island. Taxis are frequent and are reasonably priced. Only Hong Kong dollars are accepted. Receipts are available on request. Passengers passing through tunnels are required to pay a round trip tunnel fee. Passengers only require to pay single toll charge if they take taxi to cross harbour tunnel at a cross-harbour taxi stand.

The Mass Transit Railway (MTR) network provides greater ease of travel for rail passengers at competitively priced fares. The Network is comprised of the Kwun Tong Line, Tsuen Wan Line, Island Line, South Island Line, Tung Chung Line, Tseung Kwan O Line, East Rail Line, West Rail Line, Ma On Shan Line and the Disneyland Resort Line.

It is very convenient to travel around Hong Kong by taking MTR at the HKU station.
