KMB’s Enviro500 double-deck fleet to top 2,500 with latest order

Hong Kong’s largest bus operator The Kowloon Motor Bus Company has ordered 56 Enviro500 three-axle double deck buses from Alexander Dennis, to be delivered in the second half of 2021. 

KMB is the largest franchised bus operator in Hong Kong with a fleet of around 4,000 buses operating on over 400 routes. KMB’s new Enviro500, 12.8m long, Euro 6 buses will be able to carry up to 143 passengers, with all 98 seats fitted with three-point safety belts. 

This new order continues a long-standing relationship between Alexander Dennis and KMB, who have now ordered more than 2,500 Enviro500 buses from Alexander Dennis since the current generation model was launched in 2012. 

“We are very honoured that KMB continues to place its confidence in Alexander Dennis with this latest order for 56 double-deck buses,” says Paul Davies, Alexander Dennis president & managing director. “KMB continually challenges us to raise the bar and these latest 12.8m Enviro500 buses are testament to their commitment to world class passenger services.”
