Franchised bus services gradually return to normal from tomorrow
     To align with the relaxation of social distancing measures in a gradual and orderly manner, and fully resume normal public services as announced by the Government, the Transport Department (TD) said today (February 17) that all franchised bus companies will gradually resume their services during peak periods as scheduled from tomorrow (February 18) to cater for the commuting needs of passengers.

     As for bus routes with patronage on the low side during off-peak periods, in general the headway will be lengthened by no more than five minutes while the headway after 10pm will be lengthened by no more than 10 minutes, and the extended headway will not exceed 30 minutes. The TD has requested the franchised bus companies to closely monitor changes in passenger demand and consider adjusting services whenever necessary.

     In addition, the frequencies of individual bus routes mainly serving tourists or heading to land boundary control points and the airport continue to be adjusted to limited services or have services suspended due to the anti-pandemic measures on boundary controls implemented earlier.

     The TD will maintain close liaison with franchised bus companies, and will closely monitor the operation of all bus routes to follow up on the bus services to meet passenger needs.
