IDC, Traffic and Transport Committee 
Paper T&TC 27/2021 
Question on replacement of overnight ferry service 
with overnight bus service in Discovery Bay
 
   Ms Amy YUNG notified this Council that she would raise the following enquiry at the Traffic and Transport Committee meeting to be held on 17 May 2021. 
 
“   I conducted three questionnaire surveys in 2018, 2019 and early this year to consult Discovery Bay residents on replacement of overnight ferry service with overnight bus service, and each received over 1 000 responses.  Although 90%, 82% and 76% of the respondents opposed the proposal respectively, the Transport Department (TD) approved the application of Discovery Bay Transportation Services Limited (DBTSL).  It is learnt that DBTSL conducted a survey and submitted the result to Islands District Office (IsDO).  The survey result was that among the 1 842 responses, the majority supported the proposal. 
 
As such, I would like IsDO and TD to arrange representatives to attend the meeting to respond to the following: 
 
1. Since the two similar surveys produce contrary results, what criteria are used by TD in decision making?
2. How to ensure the survey results are genuine? ”
