I LIVE in Junk Bay and find that the No 690 to Central, saves me a lot of time. It takes less than an hour.

However, its fare has been raised from $6.50 to $8; a rise of 23 per cent, but other tunnel buses' fares have only gone up by 17.7 per cent. The Government is encouraging people to move to the New Territories, but fare rises this high will deter people.
