The Deputy Secretary of the Transport and Housing Bureau So Wai-man said that the three bus companies are interested in applying for the franchise renewal. The government will discuss with the company to renew the contract. If it goes well, a 10-year new franchise will be granted.

So Wai-man said that the three bus companies are interested in applying for franchise renewal, but the operating environment is still quite difficult in the foreseeable future.
