Kowloon Motor Bus 2003

The Kowloon Motor Bus company is the largest bus operator in Hong Kong.  Operating a huge fleet mainly comprising of double deckers.  Older vehicles are represented by non air-conditioned 3 axle Leyland Olympians, MCW Metrobuses and Dennis Dragons.  The very latest is the Transbus Enviro 500,  the Wrightbus bodied Volvo Super Olympian and the unique German built Neoman.  The middle order are air-conditioned Leyland and Volvo Olympians, with Alexander bodies and Dennis Dragons with Duple Metsec bodies, not forgetting the first generation of ‘gold’ low floor double deckers of Dennis Tridents and Volvo Super Olympians.

This video programme opens on the busy Nathan Road in Kowloon.  We make our way to Jordan Road and its bus station.  Salisbury Road and Tsim Sha Tsui are visited to sample the delights of KMB in action.  More action is found by Hung Hom Station and on Lai Chi Kok Rd.

We witness the evening rush at Kwun Tong, a busy bus station with all types of vehicles operating.  In contrast we also film the morning rush at Kwun Tong.  Other venues are Tsing Yi, Yuen Long and Tuen Mun where we see a number of New World First Bus Olympians transferred to operate KCR feeder services to the railway.
The video also features a number of ‘rides’ from the latest Enviro 500 to non air-con Dennis Dragons plus other types.

The casual visitor to Hong Kong would be pleasantly surprised to see what goes on in the bus world away from the standard ‘tourist’ areas.  The busy towns in the New Territories are certainly a hive of activity to the student of road public transport.  KMB is a very smart and efficient operator - a pleasure to observe - so sit back and enjoy the action!
