AsiaWorld-Expo enhances its transportation links New non-stop buses and Airport Express special fares make it quicker, easier and more economical to attend world-class events

AsiaWorld-Expo, Asia’s leading exhibition and events venue, is strategically located at the heart of an extensive and highly efficient transportation network. Combining air, land and marine links, this multimodal network connects Hong Kong to the world’s business capitals and China’s Pearl River Delta, and offers superb accessibility for overseas and Mainland visitors.

Now, to better serve the travel needs of AsiaWorld-Expo visitors and to ensure that local communities also enjoy the full benefits of this world-class events venue, AsiaWorld-Expo is pleased to launch a series of enhanced transportation links that make it quicker, easier and more cost-effective to reach the venue.

20-Something Dollars, 20-Something Minutes

First rolled out in mid-November, these newly-enhanced transportation links connect AsiaWorld-Expo with three major transportation hubs in Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the New Territories. All three links have been well received by visitors and concert-goers.

“By using the express bus from Tai Wai, I was at AsiaWorld-Expo in just half an hour,” said Mr Wong, who attended the Metro Joey Yung & Antony Wong Music Show on 22 November. “The service was of great value and extremely convenient. Now it’s available, I will definitely attend more concerts and other events in future!”

Express Non-stop Franchised Bus Services

Two non-stop, point-to-point, express franchised buses from Kowloon and the New Territories are now available on the date of events at AsiaWorld-Expo:
