Long Win Bus Company Limited (LWB; Chinese: 龍運巴士) is a bus company operating franchised services in Hong Kong. It provides bus service between Hong Kong International Airport, North Lantau New Town and the New Territories. It is a subsidiary of Transport International.

History[edit]

Long Win Bus started operations on 22 May 1997 to operate peak-hour services after the opening of the Tsing Ma Bridge.[1][2]

The first route operated by Long Win Bus was route E31 (Tung Chung to Tsuen Wan Pier when newly introduced), served by Volvo Olympians. But later on, Volvo Olympians have been retired from the bus fleet, and were transferred to its parent company, Kowloon Motor Bus.

The company's franchise was extended from June 2003 to May 2013. In April 2012, it was extended again until May 2023.[3][4] In July 2022, it was further extended for another 10 years until 30 April 2033.[5]

Services[edit]

As of December 2017, Long Win Bus operated 30 routes which cover the Airport, Tung Chung, Hong Kong Disneyland and AsiaWorld–Expo.[6][7][8]

Fleet[edit]

As of December 2017, Long Win Bus operated a fleet of 245 predominantly double-decker buses.[8]
