Published in early February 2013, this books comes in two editions. The hardback edition is limited and retails for HK$220 whilst the softback edition retails for HK$168. 

The fourth in this series of Yearbooks has the same general appearance as the previous editions, making it instantly recognisable. As with all the previous editions, it is presented in a colourful manner with a large number of colour photographs covering all aspects of Hong Kong's transport.

Half of the book covers buses, with a large section on aircraft and others featuring railways and ferries. Almost all the text in this book is in Chinese, however, most chapters have a brief English translation, which is helpful and enables those of us unable to read Chinese text to follow most articles. Lists of new buses and withdrawn buses are also in English. In the table below I have attempted to describe all the various articles and have included several page shots as well.

My interest in Hong Kong extends beyond its buses and this book provides an overview of transport in general. I particularly like the use of large colourful photographs.

Once again, JRTeam have maintained their high standards in producing another excellent Yearbook which is well worth the HK$220 (or HK$168 for a softback edition).
