     Shelters and mobile toilets have been installed at the BBI. In addition, the bus company concerned has installed and provided other facilities for passengers including windshields, seats, route information displays and a wi-fi network. At the same time, the bus company concerned has also installed the Estimated Bus Arrival Time System, making it easier for passengers to find the time of bus arrivals at the BBI.

     During the initial period after the commissioning, the TD will closely monitor the operation of the BBI and keep close contact with the bus company concerned for co-ordination of bus services.
