Hong Kong Buses

Buses in Hong Kong are operated by several companies, including Kowloon Motor Bus, Citybus, and New World First Bus. They are a convenient and affordable way to get around the city. There are also several different types of buses available, including double-decker buses, open-top buses, and green minibuses. In addition, many buses are equipped with facilities such as air-conditioning and wheelchair access.

Double-decker Buses

Double decker buses are a common sight in Hong Kong and have become an iconic symbol of the city’s transportation system. They are used for both public and private transportation and are operated by several bus companies.

However, it’s important to note that traveling on these buses during rush hour can be quite crowded.

In Hong Kong, it is typical for passengers to board buses through the front door and pay their fare using cash, Octopus cards, contactless credit cards, or mobile payment apps. When passengers reach their destination, they should exit the bus through the rear door.

Mini Buses

These small buses typically seat around 16 to 19 passengers and operate on fixed routes that cover areas not served by regular buses or other forms of public transportation. Mini buses can be identified by their green or red color, depending on the type of service they provide. Passengers can board mini buses at designated stops. However, mini buses are often more expensive than regular buses, and some routes may have limited service hours.

Here are some tips on how to take them:

1. Look for a mini bus stop: Mini bus stops are usually marked with a signpost that displays the routes served by the mini buses.

2. Check the destination: Before getting on a mini bus, make sure it’s going in the direction you want to go. The destination should be displayed on the front of the mini bus.

3. Signal the driver: To stop a mini bus, you need to signal the driver by pressing the buzzer or shout out the place where you want the driver to stop. The driver will stop at the next designated stop.

4. Don’t stand in the mini bus: It’s important to note that standing in a mini bus is not allowed by law. Always look for a seat or wait for the next mini bus if there are no seats available.

5. Be aware of bus capacity: Mini buses in Hong Kong have a limited capacity, and drivers won’t pick up additional passengers once the mini bus is full. Also, there may not be enough space for large items of luggage.
