The Jiujiang Port Area includes a container terminal and a terminal for high-speed ferries connecting Zhuhai with Shenzhen in mainland China and Hong Kong. It is also developing into a transport hub with regular coach services connecting the port with various cities west of the Pearl River such as Jiangmen and Shunde.

Ticketed passengers on flights going to and from Hong Kong International Airport may take ferries from the Zhuhai Ferry Terminal to the HKIA Skypier.[5]

Forward travel from JiuZhou PortEdit

JiuZhou Port is connected by a number of other on-going transport options.

Taxis are available.

After a busy ferry has come in, it might be necessary to queue and wait for taxis to return. To the right of the port on the sea wall-lined pavement is a bus stop for buses headed north. The number 99 directly passes the famous "Fisher Girl" statue (symbol of Zhuhai), and has views of the surrounding islands.

Opposite the port is a larger bus terminus where a number of buses run regular services. From here the number 3 restarts its route and heads North past Zhongshan University and Beijing Normal University, Zhuhai Campus, all the way up to Jin Ding. Many other bus routes lead down into the Gongbei (Chinese: 拱北; pinyin: Gǒngběi) section of Zhuhai, where the China / Macau Border Crossing is located.
