Alternative options when Ngong Ping Cable Car is closed
If you are already in Tung Chung, there are basically two alternative transportation options:
1) Take one of the blue Lantau Taxis to the Ngong Ping Village (expect to pay approx. HK$ 180). Red taxi and green taxi are not allowed to operate/drive on Lantau Island area (Get to know more about Hong Kong Taxi regulations). If you take the red taxi from downtown, you have to change to the blue taxi or take the New Lantau Bus No.23 in Tung Chung.
2) Take the New Lantau Bus No.23. In case you opt to take the New Lantau Bus No. 23 be prepared for long queues. For more information about ticket fares as well as a time schedule please refer to the following link http://www.newlantaobus.com/road_23.htm
