The busStagecoach Hong Kong commenced operation of Resident's Services in January 1994, initially with a fleet of five Volvo B10Ms with air-conditioned Alexander PS bodies. These were joined in 1995 by six 12 metre tri-axle Volvo Olympians with Volvo engines and Alexander 'R' type air-conditioned bodies capable of carrying 110 seated and 37 standing passengers.
