This project was sponsored by The Education University of Hong Kong with the goal of assessing the feasibility of cycling for the first and last mile journey of commutes in two selected locations in Hong Kong. A comparative study was conducted by interviewing cycling advocates and transportation officials from three selected cities in the United States and in Hong Kong. Observations and surveys were conducted at our two selected locations, Science Park and Tin Shui Wai. We found that it is more feasible to cycle at Science Park than at Tin Shui Wai. Our research suggests that a bike share program, improvements to infrastructure, and cycling education programs would encourage commuters to cycle for a portion of their commute in Hong Kong.
