Lantau is about to get its first minibus service.
The Transport Department has called a tender for a green minibus service between the airport, the new bridge border crossing and Tung Chung North.
The circular route will be 22 kilometres long, with buses departing on average every 10 minutes apart. Fares will be capped at HK$11.30.
The service is expected to start when the Hong Kong-Macau bridge opens either late this year or in the first half of next year.
Cheung Honwah, chairman of the Hong Kong Public Minibus Bus Driver Association Association, said a number of owners were interested in the bidding for the contract, which also includes new routes in Tseung Kwan O, Tiu Keng Leng and Yuen Long, HK01 reported.
Cheung said he hoped the new service would be extended to include the Tung Chung MTR station.
In addition to the minibus service, the Transport Department is planning three new regular bus routes to carry passengers to the airport from Tung Chung, Sunny Bay and Disney, HK01 said.
