    Fastest way from North Point to Sha Tau Kok control point

    I need to go from North Point to Shenzhen via Sha Tau Kok tomorrow. Never crossed this control point before. So far I have found online a bus from Fanling MTR to the border. Anyone knows a faster way?

    Take cross border buses from Kowloon Tong MTR or Fanling MTR. Fanling is better, avoiding possile traffic jam in Kowloon Tong, Shatin etc. Maybe a few less frequent buses from Hong Kong island, not sure never took before. Taxis cannot enter the border control area on HK side. Border crossers cannot walk in or out on the HK side. Must use a vehicle. Only Lok Ma Chau, LMC station and Shenzhen Bay you can use HK taxis. They need permits to enter HK's STK control point and most taxis don't have.

    At Shenzhen Shatoujiao border, you can use Shenzhen taxis, not far by walking outside the customs. You can take a bus to a Shenzhen MTR station in Luohu district from there too.

    Unfortunately HK Gov do not mandate open data for cross boundary bus / coach timetables. It's like being in the 1980's for data policy
