The fare increase requested by bus companies, which could lead to a rise of up to 50 percent on some routes, was met with strong criticism from most passengers. A passenger named Tsui stated that a 50 percent increase in airport bus route services is too high. Lawmakers said that the Citybus and New World First Bus, generally looking for a HK$2 fare increase, is unreasonable. He hopes the Executive Council would prevent the fare proposal from going through as the general public would not accept it. The government states that they will carefully examine the proposal with the bus company's interest and the general public's ability to adjust or reject the proposal if the fare increase is too high.
