History

PITC was established in 2002 as a joint venture between Hong Kong & Kowloon Ferry and Transport International (then known as Kowloon Motor Bus Holdings).[1] In 2009, the business was purchased by Sun Hung Kai Properties.[2]

Bus

Routes

PITC operates six bus routes:[3]

Fleet

PITC commenced with six-second-hand Dennis Dart SLFs transferred from Kowloon Motor Bus. Between 2003 and 2008, due to the rapid growth of residents in Park Island, the company bought new Dennis Dart SPDs and the very first DesignLine Olymbus electronic-motivated HEV bus from New Zealand. The three DesignLine buses were withdrawn in 2008/2010.

List of PITC buses:

  • 5 Dennis Super Pointer Dart (2 of them with Luggage racks)
  • 1 Toyota Coaster
  • 8 Young Man JNP6122G
  • 2 MAN NL323F
  • 9 ADL Enviro 200
  • 3 Sunlong Coaches

Ferry

PITC operates a fleet of six high-speed double-deck air-conditioned catamarans. The ferry routes are from Ma Wan to Central Piers (Pier 2), and to Tsuen Wan pier, near Tsuen Wan West station.[4]
