  • Application Schedule for the 2022/23 school year 

Date

 Activity

18 May 2022

Open application for the following transportation arrangements for CBS*, including:

 

(1) Special Quotas for Cross-boundary School Coaches (CBSC)

(2) Prohibited Zone Permit / Closed Road Permit for Local School Buses at Lok Ma Chau Spur Line BCP

(3) Local School Buses Accessing Lo Wu Station Road (MTRCL Section)

(4) Closed Area Permit for CBS (Lo Wu and Lok Ma Chau Spur Line BCPs)

5 July 2022

(before 3:00 p.m.)

Deadline of all the applications listed above

*In view of the development of the COVID-19 epidemic, the Education Bureau (EDB) will grant "approval-in-principle" to successful school bus operators of transportation arrangements for CBS for the 2022/23 school year.  The operational arrangements will be based on the resumption of full operation of all boundary control points (BCPs) and full resumption of classes for CBS studying in kindergartens, primary and secondary schools in Hong Kong in the 2022/23 school year.  The above operational arrangements will not be applicable if, at any time during the validity period of operation, the EDB announces that all schools in Hong Kong will be suspended, that classes for individual class levels will be suspended, or that special transportation arrangements will be implemented for CBS (e.g. implementation of half-day schooling or all CBS will be required to take school buses for a direct commute between the BCPs on the Hong Kong side and schools and will not be able to use public transport on their own, etc.) due to the epidemic development or other considerations.


Parents should keep close contact with schools and their selected operators, so as to learn about the latest news and application details of the transportation arrangements for the coming school year.  If the selected school coach operator has not been granted the approval for operating the transportation service, parents should contact other qualified / permitted operators for available seats and service details as soon as possible, or consider using public transport such as railway, cross-boundary coaches, franchised buses or green mini buses to school.
