Is that Emil Chow Wah Kin? I think he did some photo session
with Next to promote his CD last month, just before CMB
handed its franchise to NWFB. The theme is that he grew up
in North Point and witnessed it had all changed in the last
three decades .....

I think, for 347, no need la.
But for Cap Corrision, I think some transport should be provide.
I think NWFB should face this problem, otherwise, CTB may open new
route to serve that area ka la!
Moreover, 15A and 15M is also cancelled, but I think CTB serve this
area during Mid-autumn and CHung Yeung...
But ..I don;t like this.....

> However, when the route is ran by Citybus, it takes over 40 minutes to run the same distance in the morning and the afternoon at the same road condition. Why?

But I think this is because traffic congestion generated by Citybus & NWFB!!
> Also, Citybus allocates less bus on this route than CMB. Although the hotline states that the frequency is about 7-10 minutes. I always wait for up to 15-20 minutes. ( I get on the bus at several bus stops after the terminal).
But perhaps you are taking it at night!!

My wonderful journey to the South
Citybus 10 (email@example.com) from ustsu18-nc2.ust.hk at Tue Sep 29 13:52, 1998 said:
I haven't been to the south since I have entered HKUST in 1st Sept, so I took a Southern trip this morning to see the changes in the bus termini after the setting up of NWFB & more importantly, new buses of Citybus.
I saw 4 new AD on Citybus during the trip. They are Colour 18 ladies wear, Jessica Ladies Wear & 2 Tommy Hilfiger AD, one with 5 child under the USA flag & one with young women having picnic in the country.
I also saw many special departures of NWFB, including LF 28 & SF 15 on Rt 94, both with Civil Education Human Rights AD, LV 43 with an AD for a weight-decreasing Chinese tea, running on Rt 91 (It ran on rt 20 before 1st Sept), 2019 (Dennis Dart) running on Rt 38, and LF 211, having Man An Insurance AD running on Rt 23 (It was used to run on CMB 10).
When I was on the way to HKUST by KMB 91M, I also saw a KMB BL running on Rt 10 & it is the first time to have such bus on the route.
How wonderful the trip it is!!

The following picture is taking from AppleDaily (27 Sept 98).
The accident happened near Sai Kung. The bus in the
background looks like BL1 or BL2 (schedule bus of 94/99). Did
anyone know if it is the case? Anyone live in/pass by that
area and saw the accident? How many bus routes are affected?

Can anyone tell me where is AD59 (FD1179) gone?
Which route is AD59 running at the moment?
Was it from K deport transfer to L deport?
Because my last time that I saw AD59 was on Route 102, but when I go back to 1994, it used to running Route 106.

Grand Rearrangement of Island Routes
Citybus 10 (firstname.lastname@example.org) from ustsu18-nc2.ust.hk at Tue Sep 29 14:35, 1998 said:
Here is to say my suggestions on rearrangement of the Islands routes.
For 10 years, the demand for bus services in the East, except Siu Sai Wan, is ever decreasing because of opening of MTR, while the demand in other regions of the Island are ever increasing. Also, Citybus' taking up of Route 10 ended the competition between Citybus & CMB in the West while its taking up of 780 & 788 fires competition between Citybus & NWFB in Siu Sai Wan, plus the air-conditionization of NWFB Rt 2 fires the war between NWFB 2 & Citybus 5B, 10, 77 & 99, so a proper rearrangement of routes is extremely necessary to ensure the level of service in all districts are equally high.
The suggestions are:
(1) Rearrangement of Stanley Routes
The 2nd phase of Ma Hang Estate, its shopping arcade & the extension of Carmel Road from Stanley to Ma Hang would be completed in early 1999, so the demand for bus service from Ma Hang would greatly increase in both quality & quantity. The Carmel Road is wide & straight enough to let 12m buses to go through, so Citybus should rearrange the bus routes to Stanley, as follows:
(a) Rt 6A would be reformed so it goes to Stanley Prison via Aberdeen Tunnel, Ma Hang, but not Wong Ma Kok Road. 12m buses would be used to cope with the demand.
(b) Rt 6 is unchanged in places to go excpet it terminates in Stanlet Fort.
(c) Rt 73 would be renamed as 67 & it goes through Ma Hang estate, but not Wong Ma Kok Road. Also, NWFB 374 would be cancelled.
(d) To unify the network, 399 would be operated by Citybus.
(e) An electronic interchange system would be introduced to all Stanley routes to allow passengers to interchange for a bus so they can go to any places between Deep Water Bay & Stanley wihout paying extra fare.
(f) Route 63 would be cancelled & 65 would also be operated by Citybus to unify the network. It would run 7 days a week. Passengers going from Stanley to Lei Tak estate can take an interchange at Wong Nei Chung Gap to take 41A.
This rearrangement saves about 10 buses yet increases passenger carrying capacity by about 15%.
(2) Reduction in number of Western routes
Citybus now has 8 routes in the West & is too many. So reduction in the number of routes is necessary to save buses & increase number of passengers carried by bus.
(a) Cancel 5 so only 10 is remained, but 10 would not go to Happy Valley.
(b) 5C is cancelled.
(c) 10X is cancelled.
(d) 5A is cancelled & 1 would extend to Kennedy Town, but electronic fare system must be set up to allow passengers pay less ($3.4) when they are not going up to places above Happy Valley (Lower) Terminus.
(e) Rt 47A would have Central Piers as terminus so people in Kennedy Town can have direct bu service to Central Piers. Its fare is lowered to $4.7 (whole trip), $3.4 (between Felix Villas & Central Piers) & electronic fare system is introduced to reduce cost of travelling to Felix Villas.
(f) Special departures from Sai Ying Poon are available during morning rush hours to ensure all people can take a bus.
(3) Reformation of Mid-Levels Bus Service
(a) NWFB 43 is cancelled & Citybus 40B would go through Chi Fu in both directions. Both 40A & 40B would have Tin Wan as terminus. This saves at least 5 buses & all passengers would have best service.
(b) NWFB Rt 23A would be cancelled as the demand for bus service from there to Causeway Bay is not that large.
(4) Reformation of Ap Lei Chau Routes
(a) Citybus Route 92 would be cancelled to prevent duplication as better 592 is available & there are very few passengers in 92.
(5) Reformation of Shau Kei Wan Routes
(a) NWFB M21 would be cancelled & 20 would be upgraded to full-AC M20, starting from Yiu Tung Estate, then Taikoo Shing & then follow the route of M21.
(b) Rt 2A would be cancelled & 2 would be air-conditionized, with Yiu Tung as terminus.
(3) Rt 720 would be cancelled. Rt 722 would start from Yiu Tung, then go to Taikoo Shing. This only spends extra 3 minutes, but saves 10 buses & improves its profitability.
Thanks for any comments on my suggestion!!
