*New Departures


Route 98S serves passengers with earlier first departure, more trips, faster journeys and more convenient arrangement

Route 98S (LOHAS Park Station → Mei Foo) will advance the first departure to 6:40 a.m. and extend its service hours to 8:00 a.m. after adding a trip. It will reroute and travel via Ngan O Road and Pui Shing Road to serve a new bus stop at Ngan O Road. By riding on Route 98S, it is more convenient for Hang Hau residents to interchange with other buses for different districts at Tseung Kwan O Tunnel Interchange. Meanwhile, the bus stops at Yuk Ming Court, Ming Tak Estate and Chung Wah Road will be omitted.

Then Route 98S will follow the original route and bus stop arrangement to travel to Mei Foo. Before arriving at the Mei Foo Bus Terminus, it will pull over at the new stop at Cheung Lai Street, Cheung Sha Wan# to facilitate commuters working at the business area of Lai Chi Kok.

In the returning trip of Route 98S (LOHAS Park Station-bound), the first departure will also advance to 5:40 a.m with an additional trip. It adds a new bus stop at Yuk Ming Court (Ngan O Road) and omits bus stops at Pui Shing Road, Fu Ning Garden, Hang Hau North (TKO Hospital), and Yuk Ming Court (Chiu Shun Road). KMB believes that the new adjustment can bring more convenient and faster bus services to residents of The LOHAS Park and Hang Hau.

#The new bus stop arrangement applies to Route 98C as well.


Route 296C [Cheung Sha Wan (Hoi Ying Estate)  Sheung Tak] provides convenience to students and commuters with an earlier first departure

Route 296C provides all-day services. The first Sheung Tak-bound departure will advance to 6:40 a.m. with a full fare of $8.8. The new departure provides a new convenient choice for students at Sham Shui Po and Mong Kok East and commuters working at Kowloon Bay and Kwun Tong industrial area in the morning session.
