Government arranges free ferry services for Hung Hom/Kowloon City and Wan Chai
     Due to the damage to the facilities of the Cross-Harbour Tunnel (CHT), the tunnel cannot be reopened within a short period of time. To assist members of the public to commute, the Transport Department (TD) has arranged special free ferry services starting from tomorrow (November 20). The service hours are from 7am to 7pm with a headway of 30 minutes during peak hours. Details of the two routes are as follows:

1. Between Hung Hom (South) Ferry Pier and Wan Chai Public Pier (near Golden Bauhinia Square); and
2. Between Ma Tau Kok Public Pier in Kowloon City and Wan Chai Public Pier (near Golden Bauhinia Square).

     To meet the demand and provide passengers with one more option, franchised bus operators will arrange special departures (Route 115) at Kowloon City Ferry Pier Bus Terminus via the Eastern Harbour Crossing (EHC) to Central.

     In addition, the TD has co-ordinated with franchised bus operators to strengthen the frequency of bus routes operating via the EHC and the Western Harbour Tunnel (WHC) as appropriate to meet the demand. The following eight routes operating via the CHT will be rerouted to the EHC or the WHC.

Routes via the EHC
1) Route 101X: Kwun Tong (Yue Man Square) - Kennedy Town (Central and Western District)
2) Route 108: Kai Yip (Kowloon City) - Braemar Hill (Eastern District)
3) Route 111: Ping Shek (Kwun Tong) - Central
4) Route 115: Kowloon City Ferry Pier (Kowloon City) - Central
5) Route 116: Tsz Wan Shan (Wong Tai Sin) - Quarry Bay (Eastern District);
6) Route 118: Cheung Sha Wan (Sham Shui Po) - Siu Sai Wan (Eastern District);
7) Route 182: Yu Chui Court (Sha Tin) - Central
Route via the WHC
