Bus driver Ho Fong-sang is one of 80 chauffeurs preparing to transport 5,000 officials, guests and media members between venues for handover events. A self-confessed bus fanatic since childhood, the 34-year-old has been a professional driver for 12 years. He joined Citybus just over three years ago. He is now one of the company's 'standby' drivers who also perform office duties. He lives in Tai Po with his wife, who is expecting their first child in September. What does the handover mean to you? This is a once in a lifetime event and I am very eager and happy to participate. I'm especially happy because the company has over 2,000 employees and being selected as one of the drivers for the event is a great privilege. It is something to tell my coming child and grandchildren about in the years to come and I will take photos to show them. What is your role on the evening of June 30? I have to drive the guests from the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre extension to Tamar and then back again. The biggest challenge will be to move such a huge number of people in just 45 minutes, but I'm confident because we've handled crowds of this size smoothly before. Are you nervous about driving for such high-profile passengers? Yes. I am very nervous because these are VIP passengers and I cannot make any mistakes. I have to make sure everything is running smoothly and perfectly so they can enjoy the event to its fullest. I might sneak an occasional peek in the mirror to see if I can recognise any of them but of course I have to keep my eyes on the road. Aren't you disappointed you won't see the ceremony? No, because I'd rather be a part of the ceremony than just a spectator - I would be much less happy just watching it. I will be so proud when I tell my children their dad took part in the most important event in Hong Kong's history.
