Abstract

With a rapid growth of gaming market, the number of tourists to Macau increased at exponential rate in recent years. To ensure a desirable environment, several mega infrastructure projects have been proposed. Internally, the Light Rail (LRT) system is now under construction to facilitate local transportation. Externally, Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge (HZMB) is constructed to link Macau with Pearl River Delta (PRD) region. To understand people's response to future mega infrastructures, a large-scale stated preference (SP) survey has been conducted in 2010 by Macau government. The survey aimed to address some important research questions - for example, how would people's travel behavior change after the opening of mega infrastructures (e.g., LRT, HZMB)? Initial findings indicate that; in terms of external transportation, most visitors (54%) would still choose ferry even when HZMB is available. In terms of internal transportation, LRT attracts more "walking" people (50%) than bus or casino shuttle riders.
