Buses on route meeting passenger demand

We refer to the letter about New World First Bus Route 13 (Sunday Morning Post, July 1).

Buses - solution rather than the problem

We refer to the letter from Graham Bodell (South China Morning Post, January 25), regarding the number of franchised buses operating on Hong Kong Island.

As a responsible corporate citizen and commercially viable company, we at New World First Bus are only too conscious of our responsibility not to allow unnecessary buses to be despatched on to Hong Kong's roads.

Regular checks for bus service

We refer to the comments made by Ricky Ho ('Buses on route dirty and late', South China Morning Post, May 15), regarding the No 83S bus route, which runs between Sha Tin Central and Wong Nai Tau. The passenger concerned said he needed to wait for about 30 minutes for a No 83S bus during rush hours travelling to and from school on weekdays.

Double-deckers will alleviate boarding problem

We refer to the letter from 'Name and Address Supplied' (South China Morning Post, June 28), concerning the service of route No 235, and the en-route bus-stop at Shek Yam Market.

Route No 235 is a circular route operating between Kwai Chung On Yam Estate and Tsuen Wan district with a frequency of seven to eight minutes between 8.43am and 9.44am.

REFERRING to Tony Ip's letter 'More buses badly needed' (South China Morning Post, October 26) regarding the bus service on route 51.

At present, we are deploying nine double-deck buses for this route.

Packed like sardines on bus

DESPITE the vast influx of people currently moving to South Horizons, no visible improvement has been made to improve the CMB bus service, in particular, the 592 service to Causeway Bay.

Ticketless conductors get taken for a ride

IN most cities, the rationale behind introducing a self-service ticketing system on public buses is either to save money or increase efficiency.

Not so in Beijing. Here the rationale - if there is one at all - appears to spend more money and confuse the public.

No fan of dreadful Stanley buses

I WRITE this letter in response to Mr K. C. Ng's letter on behalf of the CMB bus service serving the Stanley area (South China Morning Post, April 21).

As a CMB customer who relies on the CMB bus service every day, I do not believe Mr Ng understands why Southside residents are opposed to the fare increases on our routes.
