Pre-set temperature range on KMB buses

We refer to the letter from Joseph Fan headlined 'Bus companies could easily reduce fares' (South China Morning Post, December 1), concerning the air-conditioning on Hong Kong's buses.

All of KMB's air-conditioned buses are equipped with a thermostat and an integrated air temperature control system for cool and warm air.

This system automatically regulates the air temperature inside the bus compartment all the year round, maintaining it at a pre-set temperature range.

Regular checks are carried out to ensure the air-conditioning is operating properly.

If Mr Fan is able to provide us with details of any journeys on which he has experienced problems with the heating function, we will conduct checks at once to ensure that the buses concerned are in good order.
