The bus - fleet no. 201 was the first of a batch of 24 11-metre air-conditioned Leyland Olympians of the Bus Division of KCRC, newly registered from July 1990 to July 1991. These buses are used on free shuttle services to connect the railway passengers from the East Rail stations to various housing estates or business districts in Kowloon and the New Territories of Hong Kong.
