Walking route search information in HKeMobility mobile app covers 18 districts
     The Transport Department (TD) announced today (December 3) that the walking route search information on the HKeMobility mobile app has been extended to cover all 18 districts in Hong Kong.

     The TD launched HKeMobility in July 2018. HKeMobility allows the public to acquire real-time traffic and transport information anytime and anywhere for route planning. As at the end of November this year, HKeMobility had recorded cumulative downloads of over 2.24 million, with an average daily hit rate of about 40 000.

     To encourage members of the public to walk more, the TD has been enhancing the walking route search function in HKeMobility since the app was launched. Initially, the search function covered Causeway Bay and Tsim Sha Tsui only but it had been extended to all urban districts by July 2020. The search function also offers a barrier-free route option for people with visual and mobility disabilities. With the completion of the Lands Department's 3D Pedestrian Network datasets which have been made available to the public free of charge on Hong Kong GeoData Store (geodata.gov.hk) and Public Sector Information Portal (data.gov.hk), HKeMobility adopted the dataset to provide the walking route search information to cover the 18 districts.

     Members of the public can download HKeMobility for free from Google Play and the App Store, or by scanning the QR code in the Annex.
