Increased Sea and Land Transport Services For Christmas and the New Year

Discovery Bay Transportation Services Limited (DBTPL) and Discovery Bay Transit Services Limited (DBTSL) today gladly announce that additional ferry and bus services will be provided during the Christmas and New Year seasons.

Anticipating a high demand for public transportation by revellers, ferry services of Discovery Bay/Central and Central/Tsim Sha Tsui (East) routes and bus services of Discovery Bay would be enhanced for the convenience of passengers.

Service hours of Central/Tsim Sha Tsui (East) ferry route would be extended from 8:20pm to 11:30pm for the Central-Tsim Sha Tsui (East) direction and from 8:30pm to 11:45pm for the Tsim Sha Tsui (East)-Central direction on 24th and 31st December 2001, with seven additional sailings to be provided in either direction on each occasion. (Refer to Table 1)

As the landing point at Tsim Sha Tsui (East) is close to the KCRC station in Hung Hom and the one in Central is next to the City Hall, the five-minute sea journey is expected to be popular to many revellers commuting between Central and Tsim Sha Tsui (East). The fare of a single trip is HK$4.5 for adults and HK$2.3 for children under 12 and senior citizens aged 65 or above. Infants under one year old travel for free.

The frequency of ferry service between Discovery Bay and Central would also be increased from the midnight of 24th and 31st December 2001, with four additional sailings to be provided in either direction on each occasion. (Refer to Table 2)

On the land, overnight bus services would be provided for external Discovery Bay/Tung Chung route No. DB01R and the domestic routes of No. 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 7 and 8 shuttling between Discovery Bay pier and the various villages on 25th December 2001 and 1st January 2002. As a result, four additional trips will be added in either direction of the Discovery Bay/Tung Chung route No. DB01R and a total of 14 trips will be added to the domestic bus services inside Discovery Bay. (Refer to Table 3, 4 and 5)

The increased domestic bus services would be arranged to match the schedule of Discovery Bay/Central ferry service.

DBTPL is operator of Discovery Bay/Central, Discovery Bay/Mui Wo and Central/Tsim Sha Tsui (East) ferry services. DBTSL is operator of Discovery Bay/Tung Chung bus service and the domestic bus services in Discovery Bay.

DBTPL and DBTSL are subsidiaries of Hong Kong Resort Company Limited, the developer and manager of Discovery Bay, and is held by HKR International Ltd. and CITIC Pacific on a 50-50 basis.
