New-generation Long Win Airbuses provide more comfortable, exciting and manageable journeys
In order to offer higher quality airport bus services, Long Win Bus (“LWB”) A-series Airbuses will undergo a major reform which aims to provide passengers with more comfortable, exciting and manageable journeys. The multifaceted overhaul encompasses new trademark, bus livery, design of bus compartments and image of bus captains. LWB will provide passengers in the New Territories with more convenient A-series Airbus services with a frequency of between 20 and 30 minutes and a journey time of around an hour via its new well-planned bus network. The new-generation LWB Airbuses will commence service on Route A43 and Route A43P [Fanling Luen Wo Hui Bus Terminus ←→ Airport (Ground Transportation Centre)] on June 11, 2016 (Saturday), offering passengers an exciting new travel experience.
Presented in LWB's traditional bright and vivid orange, the new trademark is made up of the Chinese word for “Dragon” and the English word “LWB”, following a concept applied by its sister company Kowloon Motor Bus (“KMB”) with an eye to forging a clearer connection between the two companies.
Bus compartment design focusing on luxury and comfort
The image of the bus fleets combines style and fashion. The bus livery and compartments are decked out in orange complemented by warm grey and khaki with a design focusing on luxury and comfort. The upper-deck compartment adopts a more spacious pillar-free design, and is equipped with ergonomic seats with increased legroom. The buses provide free Wi-Fi service, USB chargers, magazine bags at the back of seats, spacious luggage racks, bell pushes on the bus ceiling, a screen displaying the bus arrival time and glass windows with a high degree of opacity, mirroring the experience of flying.
The new LWB Airbuses will be operated by a selected group of elite bus captains who offer friendly services. They will wear new uniforms with orange and dark grey as the major colours. The design is consistent with the style of the KMB uniforms for bus captains. The uniforms not only match the new image of the LWB bus fleet, but also symbolise the close connection between the two companies.
Wider network, more manageable bus journeys
LWB Routes A43 and A43P [Fanling Luen Wo Hui Bus Terminus ←→ Airport (Ground Transportation Centre)] will be the first to use the new-generation LWB Airbuses with effect from June 11, 2016 (Saturday), connecting Fanling, Sheung Shui and San Tin (A43P) to the Airport.
In the coming months, LWB will progressively reorganise the network of its A-series routes covering North District, Lok Ma Chau, Tsuen Wan, Kwai Tsing, Tuen Mun, Yuen Long and Tai Po. In time, LWB aims to deploy the new-generation luxurious Airbuses on all of its Airbus routes, improve the bus frequency to between 20 and 30 minutes and provide around one-hour point-to-point journeys.
