Hong Kong is a very densely populated city, with more than seven million people occupying a land area of only 1,104 km2. Every day, over 11 million commuter trips are made using Hong Kong’s public transportation system, which includes railways, trams, buses, minibuses, taxis, and ferries. This public transport system requires significant public investment, especially for Hong Kong’s railways, which serve as its primary public transport modality.
