There are several shuttle buses linking the airport with Kowloon, Hong Kong Island as well as the New Territories (e.g. Sha Tin). The major companies operating on this route are KMB and City Bus and the fare from airport to city centre ranges between 30-40 HKD.
Turbojet has services to and from Macau and Guangzhou. Chu Kong Passenger Transport Co goes to mainland China, mainly Guangzhou and surroudings as well.
