Commuting in Hong Kong

For greater travel convenience in Hong Kong, you may purchase an Octopus Card at any MTR station customer service kiosk, including the one at the airport. You may pay HK$39 to purchase the Octopus card or HK$50 deposit to loan the card which is refundable upon returning the card. Octopus card is an electronic cash top-up card that can be used to pay for public transportation like the MTR, minibusses, and buses, as well as purchases at participating shops or restaurants. You can add money to it at any MTR station or 7-11, such as the 7-11 on EdUHK's campus.

You may also use different apps and websites to help you navigate around Hong Kong. Two apps or websites that we recommended are Google Maps and Citymapper (better transportation suggestions).

Conference Venue and Address (in English and Chinese):
The Education University of Hong Kong (Tai Po campus)
香港教大學 (大埔校園)

10 Lo Ping Road, Tai Po, New Territories, Hong Kong S.A.R. China

The conference will take place at the Education University of Hong Kong (EdUHK) Tai Po campus. We are located in the Tai Po district. The closest MTR station, Tai Po Market, lies on the MTR's East Rail Line

1. Conference Shuttle
At the beginning and end of the three conference days, complimentary private shuttle buses will be available to transport conference attendees between the University MTR station and the Education University of Hong Kong. (Note: On Friday evening, the shuttle will only go to the Gala Banquet venue, not University Station.)  The shuttle ride is expected to take around 15-20 minutes. Please make your way to the University MTR station to board the conference shuttle. Please use Google Maps or Citymapper to help you navigate to the University MTR station. Also, you may use MTR's Trip Planner website or MTR mobile app to understand your MTR ride.

The shuttle bus schedule can be found here:

2. Taxi
If attendees choose to arrive by taxi, the closest MTR station is the Tai Po Market MTR station ( 大埔墟火車站 ). The taxi stand is outside Exit B of Tai Po Market MTR station. The ride will take about 15 minutes and costs about HK$60 to get to the front gate of EdUHK (香港教育大學). There is a taxi stand outside the front gate where green taxis can normally be found, or you may use your preferred ride-hailing app (e.g., Uber).

3. Public Buses 
For the adventurous, you may take the double-decker bus or minibus and arrive at EdUHK's front gate.

A. Double-decker bus: Bus number 74K (operated by KMB company) runs every 20 minutes between Tai Po Market MTR station and the EdUHK front gate (at a fare of HK$5.2). If you take it from the Tai Po Market MTR station to EdUHK before 12 noon, the traveling time is about 20 minutes. However, if you take it after 12 noon, the trip is about 35 minutes.

B. Minibus: The 26 Green Minibus runs every 8-9 minutes between Ma On Shan MTR station and the EdUHK front gate (fare HK$14.3 and $6.6, depending on your boarding station). It passes through places like the Tai Po Center. The whole ride from Ma On Shan MTR station takes about 35-40 minutes; if you take it from Tai Po Center, it is about 20 minutes. 

If you commute to the venue via taxis and public buses, simply get off at the front gate (Block A) and walk to the conference rooms in Blocks C and D.
