Interim Reply from Transport Department

Dear Ms. Yung,

I refer to your message dated 18 October 2019 and our subsequent telephone conversation on 29 October 2019.

You may wish to note that the Government plans to provide the “Central – Discovery Bay” licensed ferry service with the Special Helping Measures (“SHM”) subject to funding approval by the Finance Committee of the Legislative Council. Details of the SHM as well as the associated terms and conditions will be announced by the Government in due course.

The ferry operator is now re-examining its proposal for replacement of overnight ferry service of “Central – Discovery Bay” route with a new overnight residents’ service plying between Central and Discovery Bay in the light of the financial implications to be brought by SHM . We shall update you with the latest development in due course.

Thank you very much for writing to us.
