Dear Katy,

I refer to your email dated 11.1.2022.  Our reply is as follows.
In assessing Franchised Buses (‘FB’) companies’ proposals which make
adjustments to the service level in response to passenger demand,
Transport Department ('TD') has promulgated the Guidelines on Service
Improvement and Reduction in Bus Route Planning Programme (Guidelines) (at
Annex 1).  

Apart from making reference to the principles and quantitative indicators
set out in the Guidelines, TD and FB companies will also review bus
services holistically having regard to the overall public transport
service network where appropriate, so as to maximize complementarity
amongst the routes in the district and let the public enjoy efficient
service while bus services achieve sustainable development.

Thank you for your enquiry.

Yours truly,
Miss Charlotte YU
for Commissioner for Transport
