Diversified Transportation

We make it easy to navigate Hong Kong. The sprawling metro network of the MTR connects almost every district of the city, and the rest is serviced by an extensive network of bus routes, ferries, and minibus services.

Your primary mode of transport when you arrive will likely be the MTR, as it connects all the key locations of the city in a few interconnected, colour-coded rail lines. Take the East Rail Line, for example, it takes around half an hour and costs HK$18 (US$2.4) to travel from the suburban residential area of Sha Tin to the commercial district of Admiralty. Talk about convenience!

Railways aside, fleets of taxis roam the streets of Hong Kong. The red taxis that serve Hong Kong island and Kowloon are undoubtedly the most iconic, but there are the green and blue taxis too, which serve the New Territories and Lantau Island respectively. For point-to-point travel among a group of four or five, a taxi might actually be the more economical option!

For keen drivers, Hong Kong has some impressive highway structures (remember that they drive on the left) and street signs are in English and Chinese. Environmental policies have also allowed electric vehicles to thrive in Hong Kong, with more than 5,000 public EV chargers for EVs available as of September 2022.

In Hong Kong, drivers are cordial, information is bilingual, and stops are plentiful. So don’t worry about going on any unexpected journey – or do if you want to explore the city’s far-flung reaches and hidden gems. Be our guest.
