Hong Kong has long been a place of great interest to transport enthusiasts. Its mixture of predominantly British-built buses operating in a bustling oriental setting holds fascination while Hong Kong Tramways’ 1920s-style tramcars evoke past times in an ultra-modern setting. Changes to Hong Kong’s bus and tram scene during the final 21 years of British rule are recounted and illustrated in this book. Included are the decline of the China Motor Bus Company’s operations and the emergence of Citybus Ltd. Vehicles of the Kowloon Motor Bus Company, which claimed to be the world’s largest privately-owned bus company operating in a single city, are depicted at various locations including the New Territories. Bus and light rail transit operations of the Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation are illustrated as are buses of Argos Bus Services, the Motor Transport Company of Guangdong and Hong Kong, the New Lantao Bus Company, Public Light Buses, Stagecoach (Hong Kong) Ltd and operations of the Peak Tramways Company.
