Transportation in Tai Po Town is much like any other places of Hong Kong. Due to the high population, Hong Kong has double-decker buses. There are some buses that lead to the rest of Hong Kong such as the bus 271 that goes from Fu Heng Estate in Tai Po Town to Canton Road in Tsim Sha Tsui and bus 307 which goes from central Tai Po Town towards the Central Ferry Piers viaCentral and Wan Chai of Victoria. There are also buses that lead directly to the airport such as E41 from Tai Po Centre (Tai Po Plaza and Tai Po Mega Mall) to Hong Kong International Airport.
MTR System (East Rail Line)
Currently, there are two stations in the East Rail Line for the entire Tai Po Town, Tai Po Market Station (old district) and Tai Wo Station (for Tai Wo Estates and other new estates in the part of Tai Po Town above the Lam Tsuen River). These trains go from the Hong Kong-Chinese border at either Lo Wu or Lok Ma Chau and go to Hung Hom Train Terminal in Hung Hom, Kowloon, where there's an interchange to through train services throughout different metros across China as well as an interchange towards the West Rail Line in Hong Kong. It was formerly run by Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCR) but has been leased for 50 years to the MTR Corporation, which is partially owned by the Hong Kong Government. These trains are operated by the MTR Corporation Limited (Mass Transit Railway) since the end of 2007 and come from Lo Wu Station or Lok Ma Chau Spur Line and go to Tsim Sha Tsui East Station. The same goes for trains coming from Hung Hom Station and trains go to either the Lo Wu Border Control Point (Luohu in the Chinese Customs in Shenzhen) or the Lok Ma Chau Border Control Point (Lok Ma Chau is the Chinese customs port for Shenzhen). Mainly, trains toward the Lo Wu Station only take 3-4 mins between each train while trains to Lok Ma Chau Station take about 6 mins between each train. There are two interchanges in the line, one in Kowloon Tong Station
