MTR metro

The Mass Transit Railway (MTR) is an underground subway (metro) system serving Hong Kong island, Kowloon, and the airport.

The MTR is the easiest way for visitors to get around Hong Kong. Tickets can be purchased from machines in the stations on a trip-by-trip basis or you can purchase multi-use Octopus cards at MTR ticket windows.  You may purchase daily, weekly public transport pass (Octopus).


Taxis provide the simplest way to get to the University, and are easily available at any MTR station, from hotels and most areas of Hong Kong. From the airport, you can take a taxi at the airport taxi stand.  Note that only HK dollars will be accepted by the driver.  Print a copy of this page and the map and bring it with you in case you need to show the route or University name and address in Chinese to the taxi driver.  The taxi drop-off point on campus is near the red sundial.  Alternatively, print the instructions to show the driver from the Airport to HKUST:  九龙,西贡,香港科技大学
