Hong Kong Buses
Update 2002

Another visit by our cameras to this vibrant part of the world to see all the major bus operators in action.  The video opens in Nathan Road, Kowloon with plenty of action from K.M.B. featuring the very latest Dennis Tridents, Volvo Super Olympians and M.A.N.s.  There are still plenty of non-air con vehicles in the shape of Metrobuses, Dennis Dragons and Olympians - including some 2-axle examples.  We move down to Salisbury Road and the Star Ferry Terminal.  We then witness the action on Lai Chi Kok road and return to Nathan Road to see some night time running.

We make a comprehensive visit to Hong Kong island filming in Central, Shua Kei Wan, Chai Wan, Shek Tong Tsui and Sheung Wan.  Then out to the countryside to film short      3- axle Dennis Tridents of New World First Bus on the picturesque routes 9 & 14 to Stanley via the Tai Tam Reservoir.  Further action is recorded on Des Voeux Road West before we leave by bus to the New Territories and Kwun Tong - a Mecca for some of K.M.B.s older non-air con vehicles.

We visit the Fotan depot of Citybus and then to Shatin where there is lots of action.  We then get exclusive access to the Tuen Mun K.M.B. depot and manufacturing plant.  Here we see newly delivered Volgren bodied M.A.N.s and Neoplan Centroliners, not to mention new Tridents and Super Olympians with Alexander ALX500 bodies.  The production lines are filmed as we see new vehicles taking shape.  Tuen Mun is then visited with the busy streets and bus station providing the backdrop.  Staying in the New Territories we visit Tsuen Wan and then onto busy Yuen Long that features the Light Rail system running through the city centre.  Here we see K.M.B.ís Alexander bodied Mercedes, a type just recently withdrawn. So join us for over 2 hours of bus action!
