Public transportation is readily available in Hong Kong by land or water. Ferry boats leave every 3 minutes during peak hours, playing the route between Hong Kong island and Kowloon. The Star Ferry leaves Kowloon from its port beside the Ocean Terminal, and leaves Hong Kong island from its port in front of the City Hall building at Connaught Road. Transportation by land comes in the form of a train, called Mass Transit Railway (MTR), which is the main form of public transport. Buses ply various routes and the fare depends on their destinations. Taxis are also available anytime.
