Hong Kong is one of the largest outbound tourist generators in the Asia-Pacific region; the increasing demand of traffic has resulted in a growing concern with various types of transport operators. In recent years, climate change has become a key issue debated at the international and national levels. Quarterly data from 2005 to 2013 is used in the study to find out the importance of the climate impact on Hong Kong resident departures and mode of transport. The result suggests that climate does not affect Hong Kong resident’s mode of transport uniformly. Furthermore, this study suggests implications for policy makers and practitioners.
