KMB to revamp stops on its routes 2014.09.17
408 408

KOWLOON Motor Bus (KMB, 九龍巴士 ) is planning to make travelling a more pleasurable experience by revamping bus routes, making Wi-Fi and more seats available at interchange stations, and offering discounts on interchange routes.

The decision follows the successful changes to routes in North District (北區) which saw daily passenger use of the Tuen Mun (屯門) interchange rise from 20,000 to 25,000.

Attention has now turned to Sha Tin (沙田), Tai Po (大埔), Kwai Tsing (葵青) and Yuen Long (元朗) where redundant routes are being faded out, frequency adjusted, services extended and extra runs added.

KMB bus plant manager Ho Chi-ming said the key is to reroute Sha Tin-Kowloon buses through the Tsing Sha Highway (青沙公路) instead of the overloaded Lion Rock Tunnel (獅子山隧道).

Because of the Lion Rock bottleneck, most Sha Tin commuters have turned to the overcrowded MTR.

In an attempt to improve the bus journey, the company will revamp certain interchange points and bus stops, where passengers can be comfortably seated under covered bus stops displaying bus arrival times, cooled by fans and allowed free Wi-Fi access.

More than 400 additional drivers have been employed.
