Local transport in Hong Kong

MTR: The MTR rail system is Hong Kong's subway and is the busiest and the best way to travel around the city. It runs on 5 lines connecting a large part of the city. However, it will be a little expensive compared to the tram cars and buses.

There are large double-decker buses that ply almost everywhere in Hong Kong and charge according to the distance. The small van-sized buses come in green and red, which is determined by a wide coloured strip on the top.
