Travel and Parking

Information on travelling options for people with disabilities in Hong Kong...

The public transport system has made efforts to encourage and accommodate disabled travellers with initiatives such as Rehabus and Easy Access Bus. Information about travelling around Hong Kong for the disabled is available from a number of sources:

The Hong Kong Red Cross has a mobility equipment loan service and can provide temporarily disabled or sick people with the necessary mobility equipment.

Diamond Cab provides a private taxi service for wheelchair users and (if necessary) their carers.

Disabled parking permits are issued by the Hong Kong Transport Department. Valid for three years, the permit allows reduced parking charges in car parks and free parking at parking meters.

Major attractions (such as Disney) have been encouraged to make Hong Kong accessible to everyone. Wheelchair users should find that their needs have been considered at most venues.

The main tourist website has a search facility which allows users to find details of accommodation and attractions with disabled access and specialist services. Information about access to hotels, shops and other facilities is available from the Hong Kong Access Guide for Disabled Visitors.

Disabled Travellers

The Hong Kong Council for Social Services has a guide for disabled travellers with information on facilities and accessibility of hotels, museums, country and marine parks, shopping malls, theatre and concert venues, restaurants and Consulates. It is the Hong Kong Access Guide for Disabled Visitors. Further tourist information is available from the HKTB.
