New owner considers merging operations of Hong Kong’s Citybus, New World First Bus after streamlining unified management team
South China Morning Post Excerpt
May 2, 2021

The new owner of one of Hong Kong’s largest franchised bus groups is considering merging the operations of its two subsidiaries – Citybus and New World First Bus (NWFB) – amid heavy losses that have persisted despite a recent fare increase, the Post has learned.

However, as the two firms are bound by the terms and conditions of three government franchises, a staff union said any proposed merger would only be possible in 2023 through discussions about renewing two of those agreements that expire that year. The third runs out in 2026.

The Transport Department confirmed to the Post that both bus companies had indicated their intention to renew the franchises.

Repairs in works for Hong Kong’s oldest operating post office after bus runs into heritage building
South China Morning Post Excerpt
May 6, 2021

Hong Kong authorities have said they will repair the oldest post office in service after a double-decker bus ran into the historic building following a collision with a motorcyclist on Wednesday.

The entrance and part of the facade of the 84-year-old Stanley Post Office were damaged, according to a statement released by Hongkong Post on Thursday.

Parts of the wooden beams on the roof of its entrance and a postbox outside the building were also affected.

A police spokesman said the bus hit a motorcyclist at the junction of Tung Tau Wan Road and Stanley Village Road at about 6.30pm on Wednesday. It also knocked down roadside railings and a tree as a result of the collision.

...

“Stanley Post Office has to be closed temporarily as the Architectural Services Department and relevant agencies still need to carry out a detailed survey to arrange for repair works,” the Hongkong Post statement said, adding advice would be sought from the Antiquities and Monuments Office (AMO).

KMB’s third-generation solar panel bus puts into service on next Monday
May 14, 2021
Press Release Excerpt

The Kowloon Motor Bus Co. (1933) Ltd. (“KMB”) has introduced the third generation of the in-house developed solar panel bus, which the Transport Department has approved. It will be deployed on 17 May (Monday) and put into service on Route 58X [Tuen Mun (Leung King Estate) ⇋ Mong Kok East Station]. KMB states that the new installation has become a standard configuration for newly purchased buses. It is expected that the first batch of about 170 buses will arrive in Hong Kong in the first half of 2022 at the earliest.

The third-generation solar panel bus will put into service on Route 58X. It will depart from Leung King Estate Bus Terminus at 05: 51 on 17 May. The reason for choosing Route 58X is that the relevant route runs on Tuen Mun Road. Since the road surface is flat and the daylight is sufficient, it will have a better performance for the solar power generation and emission reduction effects.

Solar panels installation has become a standard configuration for newly purchased buses. KMB expects that the first batch of about 170 buses equipped with the ultra-thin solar panels will arrive in Hong Kong as soon as in the first half of 2022. In addition, more than 1,000 in-service buses with eight-service year below will also be installed with ultra-thin solar panels. The retrofitting project makes a quarter of the bus fleet with renewable energy systems, making KMB and LWB become the largest eco-friendly fleet in Hong Kong.
