Hong Kong: Facts & Stats

Demographics | Economy | TRANSPORTATION  | Culture

TRANSPORTATION

Roads:

Hong Kong has a highly developed and sophisticated transport network, encompassing both public and private transport. Over 90% of the daily journeys are on public transport, making it the highest rate in the world.

Hong Kong roads are organised into a series of major roads classified into three categories:
  • North-South routes
  • East-West routes
  • New Territories Ring Road
There are tolls on the following tunnels:
  • Aberdeen Tunnel
  • Cross Harbour Tunnel
  • Discovery Bay Tunnel Link
  • Eastern Harbour Crossing
  • Lion Rock Tunnel (North Kowloon to Sha Tin)
  • Shing Mun Tunnels (Tsuen Wan to Sha Tin)
  • Tai Lam Tunnel (Yuen Long)
  • Tate's Cairn Tunnel
  • Tseung Kwan O Tunnel (Kwun Tong to Tseung Kwan O New Town)
  • Western Harbour Crossing

Railroads:

Hong Kong has two train systems, the Mass Transit Railway (MTR), the city's underground subway system and the Kowloon Canton Railway (KCR). The two companies merged in December 2007 to become the MTR Corporation. The MTR is clean, fast, safe and easy. It is one of the world's most modern subway systems. Though it costs a bit more than other forms of public transport, it is the quickest way to get to most destinations. Trains run every 2-4 minutes from 6am to 1am daily on three lines.

The MTR has six lines running through 51 stations:
  • Airport Express runs between Hong Kong International Airport and Central
  • Island Line runs between Sheung Wan and Chai Wan
  • Tsuen Wan Line runs between Central and Tsuen Wan
  • Kwun Tong Line runs between Yau Ma Tei and Tiu Keng Ling
  • Tseung Kwan O Line runs between North Point and Po Lam
  • Tung Chung Line runs between Central and Tung Chung
For short trips, the MTR is not the best value. For example, if you want to cross the harbour from Tsim Sha Tsui to Central, the MTR is about five times the price of the Star Ferry without the views and is only slightly faster. However, if your destination is further away, the MTR is considerably faster than a ferry or bus and about the same price.

Aviation:

As one of the most important hubs for international passenger and cargo flow, Hong Kong International Airport (HKIA) is a great asset to Hong Kong. The success in keeping the flow fluent and reliable and in providing a high-quality service to airport customers has won the airport many prestigious awards.

As the world's fifth busiest international passenger airport and most active worldwide air cargo operation, HKIA sees an average of more than 650 aircraft take off and land every day. Near 60 scheduled passenger carriers and 15 all-cargo operators link Hong Kong with more than 140 locations round the world.
