Announcing the details of the Tin Shui Wai BBI Scheme today (November 29) , a spokesman for the Transport Department said this would be the fifth BBI scheme implemented this year.
He said: "To expand the coverage of the existing bus network and to improve the operational efficiency of bus services, we have introduced BBI at Kwun Tong Road, Causeway Road, Western Harbour Crossing Toll Plaza and Wan Chai Ferry Pier.
"The schemes are well-received by the public at large as passengers are given a wider bus network with more choices of bus routes at concessionary fares.
"Given the limited road space in Hong Kong, the schemes help reduce the unnecessary duplication generated by point-to-point services and minimise the need to introduce new long haul bus routes, hence traffic and air quality will be improved," he added.
The department is now working closely with franchised bus companies on the details of two more schemes - at Admiralty and Tate's Cairn Tunnel.
They will be implemented in phases shortly.
