In the early 1990s, Kinson also served the Tai Po Yongnan Food and Kangli Electronics Factory. However, with the development of Hong Kong’s population, the British Hong Kong government set out to develop the new town of Tin Shui Wai.

We followed the trend to develop northwestern Hong Kong. At that time, the demand for school buses in many primary and secondary schools in Tin Shui Wai increased, and the number of school children in Hong Kong was also very high. Therefore, Kinson was able to lay a foundation here in the early 1990s and has been entrenched in the northwestern New Territories until now. At that time, the primary and secondary schools served by the firm included 1.Queen Elizabeth Old Students’ Association Primary School, 2.Tung Wah Group of Hospitals Yao Dazhi Memorial Primary School (Yuen Long), 3.Hong Kong Management Association Lo Kwai Cheung Secondary School, 4.Tin Shui Wai Catholic Primary School, Tung Wah Group of Hospitals Li Donghai Primary School, etc.

At that time, the bus seats were usually 56 seats to 61 seats. Huang Ming’s body factory has gradually declined, replaced by the up-coming Jit Luen Auto Body, China-Hong Kong body factory, New Asia and Asian body factories. The industry is dominated by Isuzu, featuring a 6-speed front engine with one main engine. And air-conditioning engines have independent fuel tanks and radiators.


In the late 1990s, the light rail network connecting Yuen Long, Tin Shui Wai and Tuen Mun in the northwest of the New Territories became more mature. Since 1997, all primary schools in Hong Kong have gradually changed from part-time to full-time studying. In addition, the birth rate is very low. The beginning of the year ushered in the first low tide since its establishment. School children began to switch to the Light Rail to go to school.

Since 1997, all primary schools in Hong Kong have gradually changed from part-time to full-time studying. In addition, the birth rate is still very low. The beginning of the year ushered in the first low tide since its establishment. School children began to switch to the Light Rail to go to school.

The so-called main school and branch schools appeared due to the splitting to the morning and afternoon classes in the elementary school. Therefore, the number of passengers on the school bus remained unchanged but the destinations were doubled. Making it difficult for school bus dealers to cope for a while. The Atypical pneumonia epidemic raged in Hong Kong in 2003, which brought all walks of life to the bottom. Kinson also had to sell cars to cash out funds to maintain daily expenses and the salary of drivers and babysitters.

By 2005, in view of the surplus of non-franchised buses on the road, the Hong Kong government restricted the licensing conditions and encouraged the passenger bus industry to purchase existing vehicles to fill the fleet crew. Meanwhile a large number of school bus and tour bus dealers were in their retirement age. From 2005 to 2010, the tour bus industry began to have a wave of mergers and acquisitions. Under this circumstance, Kinson is still possible to maintain a small room in the northwest region.

New Asia and Asian body factories

At that time, the bus seats began to be unified from 56 seats to 61 seats, with a 3+2 seat arrangement. In the past 10 years, Isuzu chassis also accounted for a large share of the Hong Kong tour bus market. However, after 2007, Scania, Volvo and other European manufacturers emerged into the Hong Kong market, and at the same time, there are also Chinese brands including King Long, Shenlong, Yutong, etc. (that are delivered together with the chassis and the body.)

2011 to 2020

The financial tsunami in mid-2008 caused Hong Kong’s economy to decline. In 2009, the central government allowed eligible Shenzhen residents to apply for multiple visits to Hong Kong in one year for “individual travel” endorsements (one visa for multiple lines). The number of visitors from mainland China to Hong Kong increased significantly from 6.38 million to 40.75 million in 2002 to 2013. The proportion of tourists visiting Hong Kong each year soared from 41.2% to 75%. With the rise of free travel, joint infrastructure and real estate site projects began to flourish, and there was a strong demand for site shuttle services. Kinson also dispatched a large part of its fleet to meet the demand. On the other hand, the number of school children has been declining year-on-year, so school bus dealers have begun to shift from 61-seater buses to 27-seater Toyota Coaster, 29-seater Mitsubishi Rosa and 16-seater school buses to meet the demand for school buses.

From 2010 to 2018, benefiting from the substantial increase in mainland tourists, the travel bus industry has been smooth sailing. BUSPRO was also formally established in 2017 and became a Subsidiary of Kinson . The Anti-amendment campaign that began in mid-2019 has led to a sharp drop in inbound tourists, bringing the tour bus industry into another decline. Next year, the New Coronavirus epidemic swept the world and depressed all businesses in Hong Kong. The school bus industry was not immune from school suspension.

2010 after: Jit Luen body

Since 2010, 65-seat buses have gradually become mainstream. Scania, Regal, Isuzu, Foton, and Daewoo have become the main brands of tour bus discs in the market, and manual gearboxes have gradually been replaced by automatic gearboxes.
