From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Park Island Transport Company Limited (PITCL, Chinese: 珀麗灣客運有限公司) operates bus and ferry services between Ma Wan Island and other parts of Hong Kong territory. It was established in 2002. Park Island is a major private housing estate on the island.

Contents

Corporate structure

PITCL was originally created as a joint venture company between a wholly owned subsidiary of KMB Group (operator of Kowloon Motor Bus) and a wholly owned subsidiary of Hong Kong & Kowloon Ferry Limited (HKKF). PITCL was a wholly owned subsidiary of Transport International Holdings Limited. After 2009, it became the wholly owned subsidiary of Sun Hung Kai Properties.[1]

Bus

PITCL operates four bus routes:

The buses that operate in these three routes are ten second-hand Dennis Dart SLFs bought from KMB. In 2004, because of the rapid growth of residents in Park Island, the company bought new Dennis Dart SPDs from the UK and the very first Designline electronic-motivated HEV bus from New Zealand which is more environmentally friendly.

List of PITCL buses:

  • 6 Dennis Dart SLF (from Kowloon Motor Bus)
  • 1 Designline Olymbus (NZ) hybrid-electric bus (previously 3, 2 retired)
  • 13 Dennis Super Pointer Dart (SLF)
  • 2 Toyota Coaster
  • 1 MAN 16.280 (second hand from Sun Bus, 2 new buses ordered, awaiting delivery)

Ferry

PITCL operates a fleet of 6 high-speed double-deck air-conditioned catamarans. The two ferry routes are:
