Hong Kong Travel Dictionary: Lightrail

Hong Kong Travel Dictionary - bite sized info

Light Rail

Hong Kong Light Rail serves the northwestern New Territories districts. One can find light rail near Yuen Long, Tuen Mun and Tin Shui Wai. Locals living in these districts use light rail on a regular basis. Similar to light rails you can find in other counties, Hong Kong's version operates on the road with dedicate tracks. One can hop on light rail at dedicated stations; with no gates nor barriers. Ticket purchase is self served. One must wave their Octopus or their tickets before hop on and after hop off a light rail train. All routes are numbered and can be quite confusing. Remember to take note of the route number of the light rail train that you are on.
