Effective from 4 September (Sunday), KMB is upgrading the service of Route 961 [Tuen Mun (Shan King) Wan Chai (HKCEC)] by extending its range of service to the centre of Causeway Bay and Victoria Park during peak hours every day. The service upgrade provides a more convenient way for residents in Shan King, Tuen Mun Town Centre, On Ting and Siu Lun to travel directly to and from Causeway Bay during peak hours. Passengers from other districts in Tuen Mun may also make use of other KMB routes observing Tuen Mun Road Interchange to interchange to Route 961 for heading to Causeway Bay.
