More breaks and countdowns on traffic lights needed to improve working conditions of Hong Kong bus drivers, union says
Union representatives meet the Transport Department following deadly bus accident in Cheung Sha Wan last month
October 18, 2017
South China Morning Post Excerpt

Mandatory breaks between journeys and a countdown function on traffic lights are among proposals to improve the working conditions of Hong Kong’s bus drivers, after an accident involving a double-decker killed three people last month.

Union representatives of five franchised bus companies – Kowloon Motor Bus, Citybus, New World First Bus, Long Win and New Lantau Bus – met Transport Secretary Frank Chan Fan and Assistant Commissioner for Transport Rachel Kwan on Tuesday. Chan pledged to study the ideas but gave no timetable for implementing them.

Cheung Tsz-kei, principal vice-chairman of the Motor Transport Workers General Union, said they called on Chan to immediately review the working hours of drivers.

“We are open to the idea of setting a cap on the number of hours per shift,” Cheung said. “Of course, this has to be done without compromising our current salary and benefits.”

Kung Sui-tong, deputy head of the union’s Citybus branch, said most drivers were inclined to keep the current length of shifts, as they feared shorter hours would mean less pay.

He said most drivers worked 10-hour shifts, but some chose to work longer to earn overtime pay.

Kung said a 10-minute break must be made mandatory between journeys, while the lounge area at bus terminals needed to be improved to provide a better rest environment.

A more ambitious proposal by the union was the introduction of a countdown timer for red lights, allowing bus drivers to gauge whether they should stop or proceed when approaching a traffic light.

KMB multi-ride, monthly pass priced at HK$780
Nov 15, 2017
RTHK Excerpt

Hong Kong's biggest public bus operator KMB will price its new monthly pass at HK$780 and may release it by February.

DAB lawmaker Edward Lau, who is also member of the transport panel of the Legco, said the Transport Department has approved the scheme.

He said passengers will be allowed to make 10 trips per day on local routes, and two rides for cross border routes.

Lau said the scheme will be ready as soon as the Octopus Card company finishes working out the technical details.
