Three temporary bus routes commence service in Tin Shui Wai North
 
Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) announced today that three temporary bus routes for the newly developed Tin Shui Wai North area will commence service on 10 November (Friday).
The three temporary bus routes are:

ROUTE NUMBER

ROUTING FULL FARES

$6.5
(Sectional fares: $4.6 to $5.0)

A spokesman for KCR Light Rail said that the three temporary routes will help meet the growing demand for public transportation by residents in Tin Shui Wai North. This area will eventually be served by two new Light Rail extensions, which are targeted for completion by the end of 2003.
Service frequency for the three temporary bus routes currently ranges from 10 to 20 minutes but will later increase in accordance with population intake in the area. Other aspects of the service, including service hours, routings and the terminus, will also be adjusted in the future.
For details about the three temporary routes, passengers may call the Light Rail Hotline at 2468 7788.
