Central Terminus (Chinese: 中環總站), formerly Garden Road (Chinese: 花園道), is the lower terminus of the Peak Tram line. It is located on the bottom floor of the St. John's Building on Garden Road, Central, Hong Kong, 33m above sea level, 28m before renovation.

The current station comprises a single track, with platforms on both sides. One platform is used for boarding, the other for exiting the tram. As the Peak Tram is a major Hong Kong tourist attraction, long queues are common in front of the turnstiles at Central Terminus.


The Garden Road station for the Peak Tram opened on 30 May 1888. In 1935, a new terminus was built along with the St John's Apartments: a reinforced concrete building, with eight studio flats and a two-bedroom penthouse.[1][2] In 1964, the apartments were demolished to make way for a modern 14-storey commercial and residential building. This building was in turn replaced by the current 22-storey building.[3]

Under the Peak Tram Upgrade Project, the terminus was temporarily closed on 23 April 2019,[4] with temporary platforms, located 70 metres uphill from the former platforms, opened on 22 July,[5] and again closed on 28 June 2021. The renovated station, with platforms at the then temporary site, was reopened and renamed to "Central Terminus" on 27 August 2022.
