Abstract

Hong Kong is an international commercial and service-oriented city with a well developed infrastructure and very high population density. Like most of the urban cities in the world, Hong Kong also suffered the side effect of transportation, particularly the air pollution problem. The air pollution not only affects the tourism industry, but also creates health implication problems of Hong Kong's citizens, including the raising of public health care costs and loss of productivity. In views of the importance of economic growth and public health care concern, the sustainable transportation concept shows a great potential value towards the current transport system. This paper indicates the factors analysis about the implementation of sustainable transportation system in Hong Kong. The analysis not only covers the evaluation of suitability of electric, hybrid and fuel cell vehicles according to Hong Kong driving atmosphere, but also evaluates the current policy development conducted by the Hong Kong Government. It is expected that the above findings can contribute the development of sustainable transportation systems.
