South China Morning Post Excerpt
HK$14m revamp of Hong Kong Star Ferry looks to make waves with sofas, glass roof and diesel-electric generator
World Star will set sail this month serving route from Tsim Sha Tsui to Disneyland and offering tourist tours of Victoria Harbour
November 15, 2016



A decommissioned Star Ferry will soon set sail in Victoria Harbour again after a HK$14 million transformation saw its upper deck revamped with luxurious sofas and a glass roof and the vessel fitted with a diesel-electric generator to drastically cut pollution.

Named the World Star, the ferry will start serving a new route between Tsim Sha Tsui and Disneyland on Lantau Island as early as the end of this month.

Star Ferry general manager Johnny Leung Tak-hing said fares would be about HK$180 per round trip. Sailings will depart in the mornings daily from the Star Ferry Pier in Tsim Sha Tsui, with the return trip late in the afternoon passing by the landmarks of the Tsing Ma Bridge and the Kwai Chung container terminals. Each journey will last about 45 minutes and accommodate a maximum of 180 passengers.

Currently no ferry route serves the Disney resort, which is located at Sunny Bay. The ferry operator said it believed the new service would draw both tourists and locals.

In the evening, meanwhile, the World Star will take tourists out on one-hour tours to catch a glimpse of the famous skyline along Victoria Harbour. Tickets will cost HK$200.

South China Morning Post Excerpt
Discovery Bay ferry operator demands Hong Kong government subsidies to maintain quality service
Company cites government grant of HK$410 million to two ferry operators running outlying island services
December 2, 2016

Discovery Bay Transportation Services, which runs the ferry service between Discovery Bay and Central, has demanded the government give it an immediate subsidy in the same way that another two operators will receive HK$410 million to run six outlying island ferry routes.

The ferry company made the appeal on Friday at a meeting of the Legislative Council’s transport panel as the government proposed the renewal of the licences for New World First Ferry and Hong Kong and Kowloon Ferry for another three years from next year to 2020.

They will receive special subsidies to ease their financial burden and in exchange for a lower average fare rise of 4 per cent next year.

Commissioner for Transport Ingrid Yeung Ho Poi-yan called for lawmakers’ support for the subsidies, warning that without them, the two operators would need to raise fares by over 30 per cent to keep their businesses afloat.

The operators said their financial plight was caused by a “significant increase in operating costs”, in particular a rise in crew pay in recent years and fluctuating oil prices.

The fare rises will apply to routes between Central and Cheung Chau, Peng Chau, Mui Wo on Lantau and Yung Shue Wan and Sok Kwu Wan on Lamma, as well as the inter-island route linking Peng Chau, Mui Wo, Chi Ma Wan and Cheung Chau.

“A fare rise of 4 per cent is very minor. If there aren’t any subsidies provided for these two ferry operators, they will need to increase their fares by over 30 per cent,” Yeung said.

“We propose to provide a total of HK$410 million for the operators so the fare rise can be lowered to just 4 per cent instead of 10 per cent, as originally proposed by the operators. Through the subsidies we hope to ease the burden on the public.”

The Standard Excerpt
Star Ferry seeks big fare rise
Mar. 2, 2017

Star Ferry commuters will have to dig deeper into their pockets if a fare hike of about 25 percent gets the Executive Council's nod.

The ferry company's application to raise fares was discussed yesterday at a meeting of the Transport Advisory Committee, which also called for raising the fixed penalty for illegal parking as soon as possible.

The fare hike concerns ferries running between Tsim Sha Tsui and Central, and those between Tsim Sha Tsui and Wan Chai. The advisory body will submit its recommendation to the Chief Executive in Council within the next couple of weeks.

Committee chairman Larry Kwok Lam-kwong said members are aware of Star Ferry's operation and financial performance.

"In deliberating Star Ferry's application, members have considered and balanced all relevant factors, including the financial viability of the two franchised ferry routes and public acceptability," Kwok said.

Star Ferry's current franchise will end on March 31 next year and the Transport and Housing Bureau has said the government plans to engage the company in a discussion over a new franchise.

The proposed hike will see weekday fares go up from HK2.50 to HK$3.10, and during weekends from HK3.40 to HK$4.20.
