Abstract

In September 2014, the Government announced the Railway Development Strategy 2014 ("RDS‐2014") which reaffirms the policy of using railway as the backbone of the public transport system and maps out the development and planning blueprint of the heavy rail network up to 2031. Seven new railway projects1 are scheduled to be completed by 2031 with an estimated cost of HK$110 billion. 1.2 In parallel with planned development of the heavy rail network, the Government considers it necessary to carry out a systematic review on the overall strategic arrangements of the public transport system. To this end, the Government conducts the Public Transport Strategy Study ("PTSS") which examines the respective roles and positioning of public transport services other than heavy rail to enhance their development. The PTSS also looks into some important topical issues of the public transport sectors in detail, as well as examining how to enhance the complementarity amongst the various public transport services.2 This is to ensure that the public can enjoy efficient services with reasonable modal choices, and that the public transport operators can enjoy sustainability within their respective niche area.
