Two temporary bus routes to meet new school year demand
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) will introduce two free temporary bus routes to cope with an increase in passenger demand during the initial back-to-school period.
From 3 to 7 September, two temporary bus routes S1 (West Rail Tin Shui Wai Station and Tin Heng Circular) and S2 (West Rail Siu Hong Station and Tai Hing Circular) will operate from Monday to Friday during morning peak hours between 6:30am and 9:30am at intervals of 6 to 7 minutes and 7 to 8 minutes respectively.
KCRC is also ready to increase service of East Rail, Ma On Shan Rail and West Rail during the initial back-to-school period. Extra staff will be deployed at stations to assist passengers. These arrangements will also be applied to Light Rail and regular bus services.
During the period, passengers are advised to leave home earlier, and take note of announcements on television and radio.
