The bus - In October 2009, New World First Bus officially announced details of its Rickshaw Sightseeing Bus. Volvo Olympians No. VA51-VA55 had been converted to open top ready to operate the two tourist routes, H1 and H2.

On 15th August 2011, a model of VA51 was issued by 80M Bus Model Shop and details can be found by following this link.

In December 2010, Duple Metsec bodied Dennis Trident No. 3360 appeared in Rickshaw Bus livery, retaining its roof, presumably for use in inclement weather. and as a reserve vehicle. Four years later, in 
December 2014, the service was restructured with Route H2 being cancelled and route H1 extended to Kowloon side. 

In April 15, the five Volvo Olympians were replaced with Alexander ALX500 bodied Dennis Tridents, having been converted to open top but retaining a cabin at the front.
