Getting to HKU
HKU is now serviced by the newly opened HKU MTR station. Alternatively, HKU is on the route of a number of buses or you could catch a taxi (see below).
With the interactive MTR journey planner you can input your location and desired destination and it will tell you the routes, times and prices of the trains. It is also available as an app that you can download onto your smartphone.
Hong Kong has an extensive bus network. This app is very useful as you can input your location and desired destination and it will give you a list of alternative routes.
Trams operate the length of Hong Kong Island and are an interesting way to see local neighbourhoods. You can see the route map here.
Taxis are quite affordable in Hong Kong relative to some other countries and can be flagged down almost everywhere. There are three types of taxis. The red taxis service Hong Kong Island and Kowloon, the green taxis service the new territories and the blue taxis service Lantau Island. You can use this app to call a taxi.
