Hong Kong Bus Review 2010
 
 
This book was published on 29th January 2011. It comes in hardback and consists of 176 pages, most of which have colour photographs of varying sizes. All articles are written in Chinese although each article heading has an english translation and a brief english summary. A selection of photographs of various pages of the book are included below.

This year (early 2011) we have been spoilt for choice with the publication of three 'Yearbooks' and Dominic has again set the benchmark for this his second edition.

One minor criticism is the use of very small text and a dark green background in a few tables in the Fare Collecting Systems article - although I can understand the need for laying the table out in a single page - a little hard to read at my age without the aid of a magnifying glass!

Other than that, another very good book and certainly well worth the HK$200 price.

A summary of the articles in the book is as follows:-
2010 bus pictures stories - new buses of 2010 - Wright bodied Volvo B9TL - Youngman - Hong Kong Fire Services Department MAN Publicity Unit - Kong Kong Transport Society celebrates its 20th AnniversaryCMB/NWFB Leyland Olympian - Dennis Lance - Macao's bus operators and the franchise changes in 2011 - The drive towards Euro V - Green Buses in Hong Kong - Fare collection systems - Special Service Routes - Euro Bus Expo - Bus Fan World Singapore and Malaysia Tour - 2010 fleet news and route information
