BUS OPERATORS MUST JUSTIFY ANY ENLARGED FLEET PLEAS

I refer to the letter from Citybus headlined 'Most buses full during peak periods' (South China Morning Post, November 26).

Double-deckers help meet demand

I refer to the letter from David Todd headlined 'Dangerous trip' (South China Morning Post, September 29). Citybus Route 47A is a daily service operating between Admiralty and Wah Fu. To meet the demand from students, three special morning departures are operated from Kennedy Town to Southern District at 6.45am, 7.30am and 8am respectively.

Officials' strict rules

We refer to the letter headlined 'Dangerous trip' (South China Morning Post, September 29).

Your correspondent referred to the capacity on our route 47A, running between Admiralty and Wah Fu.

Bus trial

An advanced satellite tracking system has been put on trial by Citybus to prevent its vehicles bunching up and arriving at stops together. The Bus Fleet Management System will be used on an entire fleet of the company's buses on a single route for the first time.

Unfair attack

We refer to the letter headlined, 'Dirty state of buses disgusting' (South China Morning Post, July 13).

We cannot follow up on the claims of your correspondent, as no specific information (in particular the bus registration number) was provided. The route number, and the time and direction of travel, would also be helpful.

15 Jul 1999 - 12:00am

Get in touch

We refer to the letter by Michael Duncan, headlined, 'Formula One Citybus drivers' (South China Morning Post, May 4).

We require more information to identify the driver concerned, and to take appropriate action.

I would therefore be grateful if Mr Duncan could contact me on telephone No 2963-4825.

Shortcoming

We refer to the letter headlined, 'Breaking point', in which your correspondent, Peter Ip, complained about the unreliability of our buses on route 41A, between North Point and Wah Fu (South China Morning Post, October 14). In particular, Mr Ip referred to three buses breaking down.

Working on capacity problems

We have obviously upset your correspondent Sue Tickner (South China Morning Post, August 10), who complains of the replacement of double-deck buses by single-deck buses on route 3B and the replacement of two-door single-deckers by one-door vehicles on route 12M.

We apologise for the capacity problems and inconvenience this has caused.

End convoys

The recent changes to the scheduling and routeing of the No 11 bus on Hong Kong Island have had adverse results which the operator, Citybus, might not have anticipated.

Blitz on bus safety violations

Bus drivers who speed or overload their vehicles will be immediately issued with a summons, police warn.

The move, to take effect next month, follows a series of accidents, including one involving a Citybus in which three people were killed.

Extra buses

CITYBUS announced plans to buy 40 new buses a month from January to bolster its fleet. The plans came in the wake of a six per cent fare rise which takes effect tomorrow.

Disrupted

We refer to the letter headlined, 'No Bus', which appeared in the Sunday Morning Post, on September 28.

We are very sorry for the long wait that was experienced by Fabian Pedrazzini.

On September 23, there were many road closures and temporary diversions in the Central to Wan Chai districts due to the opening of the International Monetary Fund Conference.

All buses to get handpoles

We note Francis Doyle's comments about handpoles on the upper deck of buses, in a letter which appeared in the South China Morning Post, on August 30 headlined, 'Upper deck safer with vertical hand-holds'.
