KMB further enhances bus services in Queen’s Hill and North District Service hours extension of 278A to provide a more direct option to urban area

Following the service enhancement of KMB Route 78A, KMB is extending the service hours of Route 278A [Queen’s Hill ⇋ Tsuen Wan (Nina Tower)] from 4 July (Monday) onwards. Furthermore, the service hours of Route 73B [Tai Po Nethersole Hospital – Sheung Shui (Circular)] will also be extended by adding special peak-hours trips. The first departure of Route 278X [Sheung Shui ⇋ Tsuen Wan (Nina Tower)] will be advanced.

Service hours of Queen’s Hill Route 278A extended
New departure to Queen’s Hill in the morning

With the service hours extension of Route 278A, passengers from Queen’s Hill and Luen Wo Hui can travel to urban areas conveniently. Route 278A is also via the Fanling Highway Interchange, where passengers can interchange to other KMB routes with frequent headways to Sham Shui Po, Yau Tsim Mong, East Kowloon and Hong Kong Island, thus a more flexible travel time for them. In addition, a new morning departure to Queen’s Hill is added to cope with the passenger demands so that they can go to work in On Lok Industrial Area and Queen’s Hill.

It is the second time within one month that KMB has enhanced its service in Queen’s Hill. As more residents are moving into Queen’s Hill Estate, KMB will closely monitor the demand and maintain close communications with the Transport Department, planning to further enhance the service there.
