Quite! All ironic too given how, over the ‘border’, electric buses are in their thousands and growing faster than anywhere.

Secondly, we should be proud of the efforts we’ve made in low and zero emission buses in UK. HK is much further behind on this - some of it is due to the weight and size of the high capacity, air con buses. I did see a few electric buses, but it’s all in the early stages (2/2)

Two quick observations on Hong Kong before I leave. Most of the buses are decent spec, well presented and clearly lots of effort goes into this. It’s in stark contrast to bus stops, quality of info and shelters. (1/2)

And it’s a full bus (they say coach!) to - passing more full buses in the other direction and plenty of other decent scenery too - as we wave goodbye to Hong Kong... 👋

The Rickshaw is the brand used by New World First Bus for open top tours. It was doing decent trade today. Local bus rides do a similar job for about a tenth of the price.

The bright and on brand Citybus kiosk at Central is still trying to look the part, but doesn’t seem to have an active role really anymore.

Yes, definitely. (Well, depending on the operator of course!)

Can safely say that’s the first time I’ve ridden on a Youngman, which is the new marque from MAN and Chinese manufacturer Pang Qingnian...

Star Ferry across the harbour - almost as breathtaking a scene as when you approach the Pier Head on a Mersey Ferry. Another amazing Hong Kong tradition - and long may it continue. As popular and as frequent as ever!
