China Motor Bus Company

Thumbs up

After a run of bad luck since the handover, such as the stock market crash and bird flu, Hong Kong people have finally had some good news, with the decision by the Government to terminate the franchise of China Motor Bus Company.

Bus-route plea

I am writing to complain about the irregular China Motor Bus service on route 94 between Central to Ap Lei Chau.

After the Christmas holiday, there was a drop in the number of buses on this route with the result that the service has become very irregular and inadequate.

CMB plying dangerous course

We have, over the years, heard many complaints and suggestions about transportation services. And when any improvement or changes are made, they just do not last.

I wrote to the China Motor Bus Company at the beginning of the school year, requesting they improve their Nos 25 and 25M service in the Braemar Hill/North Point Mid-Levels area.

Drivers lacking good manners

The China Motor Bus Company may boast about its new buses, but its drivers need lessons in common courtesy and energy conservation.

Missing bus

THE number of journeys of bus route No 3A from Felix Villas to Central has been substantially cut.

The first bus leaves at 7.15am with a 30-minute interval for the next two journeys at 7.45 and 8.15 am. The next 3A is at 3.15pm. The last journey from Central to Felix Villas is at 5.45pm; it used to be 6.45pm.

Residents angered by inferior bus service

I AM concerned about the quality of service provided by China Motor Bus Company, in particular, in the Chai Wan and Siu Sai Wan areas.

Siu Sai Wan is a rapidly expanding housing estate.

As more and more people are moving into this estate, the problems with the poor bus services provided by CMB are reaching a point which is totally unacceptable.

Company's poor service

I WAS waiting for a No 504 bus to Pokfulam at the bus-stop nearest to the Wan Chai Ferry bus terminus, at about 1pm, on April 15, when I saw the Nos 40 and 504 arrive at the stop at the same time.

Passengers had been waiting for about 15 minutes before the buses arrived.

Sorely missed

I AND most of my fellow passengers who I know, are disappointed that the excellent route No 525 has been withdrawn at short notice.

I wish the relevant officials at China Motor Bus Company, would consider at least a partial resumption of the service, at 9am, from Braemar Hill.

Not normal business practice

I WAS quite surprised when I learned of the reasons being given by the China Motor Bus Company, to justify its application for a large rise in fares; namely a loss of revenue caused by a transfer of routes to Citybus, and the abolition of the MTR peak hour surcharge.

High price for air-con

AS a regular passenger on China Motor Bus Company's No 23 route, I feel the fare of the air-conditioned buses, at $5.30, is unreasonable. The non-air-conditioned bus of the same route charges only $3.80.

CMB faces the end of the road

THIS really must be the last straw! ''One for the road'' (South China Morning Post, July 24) surely marks the beginning of the end for the China Motor Bus Company (CMB). How can a society like Hongkong's continue to tolerate the appalling level of service CMB provides?

Hero of CMB saves express bus

I AM writing with a few words of praise for one hero who works for the China Motor Bus Company.

Just over a month ago, CMB cancelled the number 721 express bus service from Exchange Square to Taikoo Shing, with no advance warning or explanation. Oddly, the bus itself continued to run, carrying passengers one-way from Taikoo Shing to Exchange Square.

Bus front section insecure

THE China Motor Bus Company needs to know that the front section of their double-decker buses is an extremely insecure area.

There is nothing that one can hold on to except two railings in the ceiling which not everybody, particularly the elderly, women and children cannot reach.

Screeching to a painful halt

I AM a resident of Caine Road and would like to urge the China Motor Bus Company to do something about the incredibly loud screeching sounds, created by the brakes, of some of its buses operating the Caine Road-Robinson Road and Caine Road-Wah Fu sectors.
