Press Release Excerpt
Bus Regeneration Programme: KMB donates used and retired buses to four primary and secondary schools

Students and teachers of TWGHs Ma Kam Chan Memorial Primary School, HKMLC Ming Tao Primary School, Kam Tsin Village Ho Tung School and Caritas Ma On Shan Secondary School will now be able to enjoy learning on a retired bus provided by The Kowloon Motor Bus Co (1933) Ltd (“KMB”) under its Used and Retired Bus Programme.

TWGHs Ma Kam Chan Memorial Primary School will regenerate the donated bus as “Let’s play, Dream Makers!” utilising different media, including books and online resources, to learn about children’s games of different eras and cultures in the world. There are also various kinds of board games to practise active thinking and communication skills. The bus will also be used to inspire students to design different games to enhance their learning interests.

HKMLC Ming Tao Primary School will convert the upper deck of the donated bus into a “STEM solar energy research centre”, with eight solar panels installed on the roof to provide some renewable energy for the bus. The lower deck will become a happy reading gallery, providing students with a creative classroom and a new learning environment to enhance their reading pleasure.

Kam Tsin Village Ho Tung School will make use of the upper deck as a multiple activity space for senior students. Through placing tablets, experimental tools and teaching resources on different topics, students explore the mysteries of science and technology for themselves. The lower deck will be mainly for junior students, with a toy library with different types of educational toys so students can learn from games.

Caritas Ma On Shan Secondary School will regenerate the donated bus as a learning place that teaches the meaning of life, using high-end technology, such as virtual reality and augmented reality, to cultivate students’ positive life values through school-based life education courses. In the long run, the school hope the bus will become a unique life education hall.

The Principal of TWGHs Ma Kam Chan Memorial Primary School, Ms Fung Yuk Yi, the Principal of HKMLC Ming Tao Primary School, Ms Chan Kwan Ho, the acting Principal of Kam Tsin Village Ho Tung School, Ms Ng Yuk Ki, and the Principal of Caritas Ma On Shan Secondary School, Mr. Choi Chi Leung, expressed their thanks to KMB and believed that the regenerated buses can provide students with an alternative learning area as well as with social resources to share and promote community harmony.

KMB aims to use the retired buses, which are used for teaching purposes, as a different way of serving Hong Kong, while achieving the purpose of recycling resources. These donations also allow the schools to use their creativity to give a new meaning to the old bus and assist students in chasing their dreams in an enhanced learning atmosphere.

In addition to open government data, we have been encouraging public and private organisations to open up their data that carry a high degree of public interest. Public transport operators, such as the New World First Bus, the Citybus, the New Lantao Bus and the MTR Corporation, have all responded positively to this call. They will begin open up their real-time arrival data by the end of this month. This is a very important step forward in pursuing our smart mobility development.
