Rehabus (復康巴士) is a paratransit service operated by the Hong Kong Society for Rehabilitation and began service in 1978.[1]

The service provides public transit services to people with disabilities in Hong Kong who cannot ride regular public transit. While most modes of transport in Hong Kong are accessible (excluding minibuses), Rehabus provides an easier means of getting around Hong Kong.

The service operates 54 schedule routes, 3 feeder routes and a dial-a-bus service (includes pooling services).

Easy-Access Transport Services Limited is a service commissioned (2001) to provide hospital transport for the general public by the Hospital Authority. This system uses 20 hire cars to provide transport.
