All hail new taxis

On a positive note for South Lantau residents, 25 new taxis are expected to commence operation in the second quarter of 2016.

This is the first time since the opening of the new airport that the number of Lantau taxi licences has increased.

The Transport Department reveals on its website that, “Survey results and public feedback have shown that there is unmet demand in the current Lantau taxi service. Future developments on Lantau Island and the projected growth of the local population and visitors will further add to the demand for such service.”
