進智公交是香港第二大的專線小巴營運商，其品牌口號為「進取之道，智慧每步」。進智公交前身是香港仔專線小巴，創立於一九七五年，為本港第二家的專線小巴營運商。進智公交的英文名稱AMS由來正是昔日公司英文名稱Aberdeen Maxicab Service的縮寫，自二零零四年起，正式改名成進智公交並於港交所上巿，亦是芸芸香港小巴營運商中，唯一一家於香港股票巿場上巿的公司。
AMSPT (AMS), known as Aberdeen Maxicab Service before Mar, 2003, was established in 1975, is the second large Green minibuses (GMB) operator in Hong Kong and the only GMB operator listed in the Hong Kong stock market since 2004.
"Moving ahead with every wise step" is the motto of AMS and it is easy to know it was first founded in Aberdeen, the Southern Part of Hong Kong Island, from the previous company name. The first three routes (route 4, 5 and 6) of the company first entered service with bargain fare in Jul ., 1975 and route 4 once 24-hours operated, the first overnight GMB service in Hong Kong. Aberdeen Maxicab Service upgraded it fleet to full air conditioned in 1983 and it is the first full air conditioned GMB fleet in Hong Kong.
Since 1990s, though the base of Aberdeen Maxicab Service still in Aberdeen, it started expand it networks and the first service operates outside Aberdeen is route 481, linking Fo Tan and Tsuen Wan and the overnight service 482 between Tsuen Wan and Sha Tin Central. Another service operated from Shek Lei to Sha Tin with another brand name, 403 was introduced two years later after the success of both 481 and 482. More branch service of the routes mentioned above was commenced and become another public transport choice for commuters between Sha Tin and Tsuen Kwai area. As Octopus become more popular, Aberdeen Maxicab Service accept this payment method in 1999 and again, it is the first GMB operator to do so.
During 2001, Roadshow was allowed to broadcast their production in Aberdeen Maxicab Service and this is the first in GMB operator. The relationships among Aberdeen Maxicab Service and Roadshow was not last long and since 2012, AMS introduced mobile media again with Motion Media. The networks of Aberdeen Maxicab Service further expanded in Sep ., 2001 after the acquisition of Tai Po Minibus Service Co., Ltd. In 2002, we saw another milestone of Aberdeen Maxicab Service, the awarded of route 69 linking between Cyber Port and Quarry Bay and the fleet of route 69 is Toyota Coaster EX version decorated with outstanding all white livery. 2004 is a meaningful year for Aberdeen Maxicab Service, not only the name of the company changed into AMSPT, but also to be a listed company in HKEx and the stock number of AMS is "77", and this is good explanation of several minibuses with registration number 77 in the fleet. AMS once also invested on cross boarder bus service between 2006 and 2011.
The fleet of AMS is composed of Toyota Coaster and Mitsubishi Rosa and the former is already outnumbered in the Hong Kong minibus market. AMS is actively in evaluating minibus powered by alternative fuel, LPG version Toyota Coaster and Vicmax electric minibus were both first evaluated in 2000 while since Nov., 2013, the GMI Gemini hybrid minibus started to serve commuters for evaluation purpose.
