  • 1933

    On 13 April 1933, Tang Shiu Kin, William Louey Sui Tak, Lui Leung, Tam Woon Tong and Lam Ming Fan established The Kowloon Motor Bus Company (1933) Limited (KMB), which was granted the right to operate franchised bus services in Kowloon and the New Territories. There were 106 small single-deck buses in the embryonic KMB bus fleet, offering two classes of seats, namely first class (with cushion) and second class (without cushion) wooden seats.

  • 1941-46

    By the time of the Japanese occupation in December 1941, KMB had 140 buses operating on 17 routes. With its buses requisitioned by the occupying force, KMB operations came to a virtual standstill, with just two routes still running in 1944. By February 1946, in order to resume a full service to the community as soon as possible, KMB converted some second-hand military trucks to carry passengers. At the same time, the class seating was abolished.

  • 1949

    After the war, the population of Hong Kong soared. To handle the increased demand for its services, KMB supplemented its fleet with 20 Daimler A buses from England, becoming in the process the first bus company to introduce double-deckers to Hong Kong.

  • 1953-54

    KMB established bus stops on all its countryside routes on roads where previously passengers could get on or off buses as they wished. One year later, the Daimler A buses were fitted with front doorways and sliding metal gates, operated by conductors.

  • 1955-59

    Owing to a large influx of immigrants from the Mainland, the population has risen to 2.5 million, a more efficient transport system was required. This led to the further development of KMB routes in the urban Kowloon area, which by the end of the decade was home to 28 bus routes. During the late 1950s, KMB started its employee development programme, and designated experienced bus captains as driving instructors for trainee bus captains.

  • 1972

KMB's first boundary service, Route B1, running between Yuen Long West Rail Station and Lok Ma Chau Spur Line Bus Terminus, was launched. This new route has enabled KMB to expand its bus service to meet the growing demand for transport between Hong Kong and Shenzhen.
