The MTR is Hong Kong's tube train system. Faster than the buses, and cheaper than the taxis, this is pretty much the best way to get around Hong Kong via public transport. Tickets cost from about 4 to 8 hong kong dollars, plus about $9 more if you cross the harbour. The airport express line costs $90, which is a bit extortionate... but there again, this is Hong Kong! 8^)

The MTR starts running at around 6 am, and finishes at around 1 am. This can be a tad inconvenient, but there again, if you're out past 1, you might as well stay out all night... 8^)
If you really need to get somewhere between 1 and 6, you're going to have to take a taxi. (The last buses run between about 12:00 and 1:30).

The routes are listed below. I've included the KCR (Kowloon Canton Railway) as well - this is an overland train running from Kowloon across the New Territories, to the Chinese border.
