The road is shared between automobile traffic and the Hong Kong Tramways system, and the east bound of the section between eastern Causeway Bay and Quarry Bay bus lane. This tram line runs between Shau Kei Wan to Kennedy Town. Before the opening of Island Eastern Corridor and Island Line of the MTR in the 1980s, the road was plagued with traffic congestion. Various measures like creation of bus lanes were taken to address the problem.

Part of the MTR Island Line runs underneath the road, and the following stations serve the Road: Tin Hau (exit A1), Fortress Hill (exits A and B), North Point (exits B1/B2/B3), Quarry Bay (exit A), Tai Koo.
