This month, Discovery Bay residents welcome their first ever double-decker bus.
DBers will be happy to hear that Discovery Bay’s first double-decker bus has arrived and is currently being checked in the bus garage of Discovery Bay Transport Services Limited (DBTSL). According to DBTSL, five more double-decker buses will arrive in the coming months and all six buses will be running on external routes to Tung Chung and Sunny Bay.
In comparison with the existing buses, the number of seats will be increased to 86 and the standing capacity slightly reduced to 34.
Introducing the double-decker buses is the outcome of years of work and petitioning by members of the Passenger Liaison Group. Dr Francis Chiu hopes that the buses will ease the congestion problems occurring during rush hours, and allow passengers to enjoy a comfortable seat during their journey.
