WHERE ARE WE NOW
Hong Kong has been consistently ranked among the top cities for the quality of its public transport. However , there has been a steady increase in private vehicle ownership over many years resulting in a higher number of cars on the streets and increased congestion , slowing buses and making them less efficient. Some much needed extensions to the public transportation network have been delayed, as have steps to introduce stronger measures to reduce roadside emissions. Part of the difficulty, including in rationalising bus routes, revolves around how District Councils are asked to be part of improving transport. The number of electric vehicles is also limited, as there is insufficient policy support for adequate charging stations. That may be changing with recent government commitments to additional EV charging throughout the city.
