AsiaWorld-Expo enhances its local transportation links

More buses and Airport Express special fares make it easier and more economical

AsiaWorld-Expo has built a global reputation as Asia’s premier exhibition, convention and events venue, as proven by playing host to a vast array of high-profile international trade events. On top of the business-to-business events, the venue has a line up of more and more hugely popular public events that have been well received by the local market.

Now, to better serve the travel needs of AsiaWorld-Expo visitors and to ensure that members of the public also enjoy the full benefits of this world-class events venue, AsiaWorld-Expo is pleased to work hand in hand with the Transport Department, MTR and local bus companies to launch a range of enhanced and new transportation links that make it quicker, easier and more economical to reach the venue on event days, starting from November 2010.

New “A-route” Franchised Buses Direct to AsiaWorld-Expo
All “A-route” airport buses from Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories will now stop at AsiaWorld-Expo, namely the A10, A11, A12, A21, A22, A31, A41, A41P, and A43, and a number of these routes will offer half-price discounts on the same-day return journey. These fast and convenient bus services mean that the best events in Hong Kong are now just 30 - 40 minutes away from Tsuen Wan, Shatin, Jordan, or Western District (HK) among many other districts!

New Express Bus (Route X1) from Tung Chung MTR Station
A new point-to-point express bus (Route X1), will commence operation between Tung Chung MTR Station and AsiaWorld-Expo from 9 November 2010, offering a journey time of just 12 minutes. With the MTR Fare Saver machine at AsiaWorld-Expo, visitors can also save more on the return MTR trip from Tung Chung Station.

Airport Express Special Same-Day Return Fares
Thanks to the in-venue station at AsiaWorld-Expo, the Airport Express is one of the fastest and most comfortable ways to reach the venue. Passengers using Octopus Cards from Tsing Yi Station can also enjoy a special same-day return fare of HK$42 (HK$21 one-way), including free connection to the territory-wide MTR network.

In addition, a same-day return ticket on the Airport Express from Hong Kong or Kowloon Stations to AsiaWorld-Expo Station will be available for a special fare of just HK$48 (equivalent to HK$24 one-way). Tickets can be purchased at the service counter at Hong Kong or Kowloon Stations.

These new transportation arrangements are subject to terms and conditions. For further details, please visit the website at https://www.asiaworld-expo.com.
