Hong Kong must act now to tackle road congestion
15 May 2015
South China Morning Post Excerpt

When officials say something is worthy of support in principle and will be implemented in stages in light of the circumstances, they probably mean they are not keen to do so, or have no idea how to go about it. This appears to be the case with the proposals put forward by top transport advisers to tackle the city's worsening traffic congestion. Many of the ideas are simple enough, yet they have been gathering dust on the shelf for years despite repeated studies and consultations.

It would be unfair to say the government has done nothing, though. For instance, bus traffic in Central, Causeway Bay and Mong Kok is said to have been reduced by more than 2,000 trips over the past two years as a result of route realignment. The government has also set aside HK$11.4 billion in subsidies to help phase out some 82,000 polluting diesel commercial vehicles by 2020.

But whether these steps translate into any real improvement is another matter. If a study by a green group is any guide, levels of PM 2.5 pollutant in Central during evening rush hours are double the World Health Organisation's air quality guideline.

Transport focus on the elderly
The Standard Excerpt
Monday, August 24, 2015

All buses in urban areas will change into super-low-floor vehicles from 2017 if operating conditions allow, Secretary for Labour and Welfare Matthew Cheung Kin-chung said.

Cheung said in his blog yesterday that as the local population is getting older, more people may use wheelchairs.

A "barrier-free transportation system" should be built, and facilities for the disabled and the elderly enhanced.

Two years from now, buses with super-low floors, which will be easier for passengers using wheelchairs to get on, will serve all routes in urban areas.

Hundreds of Hong Kong bus fans line the street to snap their favourite model retire from service
22 September 2015
South China Morning Post Excerpt





Hundreds of bus enthusiasts on Monday bade farewell to KMB's first super-low-floor bus - a model that set the world standard for wheelchair-friendly double-deckers.

The British-built vehicle was retired before reaching 18 years in service. Bus fans gathered at various locations along route 1A, on which the 12-metre Dennis Trident bus served with the fleet number ATR 1, to capture its final journey from Sau Mau Ping to the Star Ferry Pier.

The model was specially designed for Kowloon Motor Bus in the mid-1990s. Equipped with a wheelchair ramp, a "kneeling device" to lower its front axle further and a designated area for a wheelchair, the bus made access easier than ever.

KMB and its subsidiary Long Win Bus still have more than 600 Trident buses with various different bodies and designs. But this bus, bearing the licence plate HJ 2127, held a special place in the hearts of bus crews, passengers and fans.

Driver Man Hong-fat, who was among the first crew members trained to drive this type of bus, said he would miss the vehicle and took a picture of it with his phone.

"I feel a little bit proud to drive this bus," said Man. "It was the first bus to be painted gold. I nicknamed it No1. It was also the pioneer bus to offer a larger driver jump-seat. I didn't feel tired when I worked on this bus."

The bus's many fans also held fond memories during its countdown to retirement.

Some enthusiasts even spilled onto the main roads in Tsim Sha Tsui to get the best shots of the bus on Sunday - actions which were criticised by internet users.

It was parked at the Sau Mau Ping terminal for around half an hour, before Man drove the fully-loaded bus - most of the passengers being fans - to its destination in Tsim Sha Tsui for the last time.
