Two major bus operators in Hong Kong to raise fares by 12 per cent from next year
Citybus and New World First Bus blame rising operational costs, while Lantau cable car operator Ngong Ping 360 also announces price adjustment

25 August 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Two of Hong Kong’s major bus operators plan to raise fares by 12 per cent in January 2018 citing rising operational costs.

Citybus and New World First Bus, which collectively operate 169 bus routes and own about 3,000 buses across the city, said the proposed increases meant 85 per cent of non cross-harbour routes will see passengers pay less than HK$1 extra per trip and 70 per cent of cross-harbour routes will be less than HK$2 extra.

If approved by the government, it will be the first fare rise in nine years.

The proposal came despite the companies’ bigger rival Kowloon Motor Bus vowing to freeze fares this year, and even planning small discounts on certain routes.

Citybus and New World First Bus, owned by NWS Holdings, said the proposed fare adjustment had already taken public affordability into consideration.

The two operators have suffered a considerable loss of passengers to the MTR’s West Island line extensions in 2015 and the opening of the South Island line in 2016, an NWS spokesman said.

Heavy investment in future fleet replacement, rising wages and a loss of advertising revenue also weighed heavily on the operators’ profitability, he said.

Hong Kong Economic Journal Excerpt
Fatal bus crash a wake-up call on issue of working hours

The deadly bus crash in Sham Shui Po last Friday evening that killed three and injured 30 has sparked concern that the existing guidelines on the standard working hours of bus drivers may be too loose, so much so they are putting passengers and other road users at risk.

According to the Guidelines on Bus Captain Working Hours, Rest Times and Meal Breaks issued by the Transport Department, maximum duty (including all rest times) in a working day for bus drivers should not exceed 14 hours, and their driving duty (that is, maximum duty less all rest times of 30 minutes or more each) in a working day should not exceed 11 hours.

While working 14 hours a day might be the upper limit set by the government, the reality is that it has actually become the norm with many bus drivers in the city.

Many of the bus drivers, in fact, work overtime on a regular or even daily basis since their basic monthly salaries are so low.

For example, according to Citybus, the bus captain involved in last Friday’s fatal crash had already been working more than 13 hours daily for several days in a row before the accident took place.

Such practice calls into serious question whether the existing policy can truly guarantee that the bus drivers are always in good shape when they are on duty.

As such, we agree with the unions that the government should immediately reduce the current cap on their standard working hours and strictly enforce it.

In fact we believe that not only should the government regulate the standard working hours of bus drivers, it should also seriously study the feasibility of putting a legal cap on the standard working hours of employees in other “high-risk” industries that involve public safety.

While our society might remain split over whether the government should impose universal standard working hours on all industries since it could give rise to a lot of technical problems, we are quite certain that there shouldn’t be too much controversy over legislating for standard working hours that are tailor-made for some high-risk trades in order to further ensure public safety.
