港鐵巴士部 MTR Bus Division

於一九八六年底,因應興建連接屯門及元朗的輕便鐵路系統,為向偏遠鄉村村落及地區提供接駁服務,九廣鐵路於是成立了巴士部門。九廣鐵路巴士部成立後,接管了部份原由九巴提供的區內巴士服務,並向乘客提供憑票免費轉乘輕鐵的服務。而另外,兩條原由九巴派車的九鐵接駁路線─K11及K12,也因應九廣鐵路巴士部成立,而同時改由九鐵派出自己的巴士行走。

九廣鐵路巴士部於一九八七年接收首批巴士,都城嘉慕都城型九點七米,於紅磡車站裝配上原廠車身後,外貌跟九巴同款車輛無異。而在翌年,九鐵再加訂八部同款車輛,在完成九鐵的訂單後,都城嘉慕也宣佈退出巴士製造商行列,亦令這批巴士成為該車廠最後的產品了。除了訂購新巴士,九廣鐵路巴士部亦於一九八八年在都城嘉慕協助下,向英國South Yorkshire PTE Ltd.購入二十部一九八零年款的都城型一型巴士,以確保有足夠巴士提供服務。

另外為提供更完善之服務,在一九八八年九月,九鐵向豐田購入十二部豐田Coaster小型空調巴士,用以行走龍鼓灘路線。一九八九至九零年,再購入十一架載客量更大的三菱MK117中型巴士,並於同年試用一架丹尼士飛鏢,但未有即時作出訂購。另外在九零年,九鐵為進一步提高接駁巴士服務質素,購入二十四架利蘭奧林比安十一米空調巴士,行走接駁九鐵車站路線。一九九五年,為取代退役的二手都城巴士,九鐵購入十八架配Northern Counties車身的單層空調巴士,包括十五架富豪B10M及三架丹尼士飛鏢,令九鐵成為全港擁有最多Northern Counties車身巴士公司。而在九七到九八年,再購入共十五架富豪奧林比安十一米空調巴士。

在二零零零年,九鐵購入二十二架配亞歷山大ALX500車身十一點三米丹尼士三叉戟,成為該公司首款低地台巴士。而在二零零四年十二月,從新巴購入的十點六米三叉戟巴士亦陸續投入服務,陸續取代都城嘉慕都城型,並於二零零五年全空調化。

二零零七年十二月二日,九廣鐵路及地鐵合併成香港鐵路,九鐵巴士部亦改稱港鐵巴士部,當時車隊色彩及營運網絡維持不變,只是原有的九鐵標誌,改以港鐵標誌示人,直到二零零九年八月及九月,東鐵及西鐵部的港鐵巴士各自推出新的企業色彩,為乘客帶來一個耳目一新的形象。

為取代車隊中的首批利蘭奧林比安空調巴士及全數三菱中型巴士,九鐵巴士於二零零七年向亞歷山大丹尼士訂購九架Enviro500雙層巴士及十一架飛鏢E200單層巴士,並分別自二零零八年年初及二零零八年第三季投入港鐵巴士服務,而港鐵巴士續於二零零九年再贈購十五架Enviro500,以替換餘下的利蘭奧林比安。港鐵巴士再於二零一零年落實購買十八架雙層空調巴士,用作取代隊中十八架配Northern Counties車身的單層巴士,訂單再一次落入亞歷山大丹尼士手上,提供九架十一米版Enviro500及九架Enviro400,當中港鐵巴士是本港第二家巴士公司營運量產型號的Enviro400。

除了營運東西兩鐵接駁巴士之外,港鐵機場快線亦有提供接駁巴士服務聯繫九龍站及香港站,穿梭巿中心酒店及商業中心區,不過有關服務以委託形式,由冠忠集團旗下泰豐遊覽車派車行走。

In 1986, KCRC Bus Division was established to provide feeder bus service in remote areas within Tuen Mun and Yuen Long as a response to the construction of Light Rail Transit system. All routes served by KMB in these areas were transferred to KCRC. Passengers can change LRT from feeder bus free of charge with valid ticket. In addition, KCRC bus division took over two free feeder services used to operate by KMB (route no. K11 and K12).

The first batch of MCW Metrobus were delivered to KCRC in 1987 and received their MCW bodyworks at Hung Hom Station. The look of the bus same as those in KMB fleet. KCRC then made a further order of 8 more buses and after this order, MCW quitted from buses manufacturing business. To ensure enough buses in operation, KCRC acquired 20 second-hand MCW Metrobus MK I with the help of MCW from South YorKshire PTE Ltd.

In Sept., 1988, 12 Toyota Coaster air-conditioned minibuses were purchased for Lung Kwu Tang route. 11 Mitsubishi MK117 midi buses and 24 Leyland Olympians were ordered between 1989 and 1990 to upgrade the service standard. To meet the decommissioned of 20 Metrobus MK I, KCRC placed an order of 18 air-con. single decker with Northern Counties bodyworks (15 of them are Volvo B10M and the remaining three are Dennis Dart). 15 Plaxton bodies Volvo Olympian were ordered by KCRC with two batches in 1997-1998. Like other bus operators in Hong Kong, KCRC also introduced super low floor buses in 2000 and the model was popular in Hong Kong, the Dennis Trident. 42 Dennis Trident 10.6m were introduced from NWFB in Dec 2004 to replace the Metrobus. In 2005, KCR Bus Division become fully air-conditioned.

KCRC were merged into MTR on 2, Dec. 2007. KCRC Bus Division was then changed into MTR Bus Division and the network remain unchanged. The MTR Bus Division livery was the same as the KCR era with the original logo was replaced by a MTR logo. In order to establish a new image, MTR introduced two different colour schemes on East Rail and West Rail feeder service in Aug., 2009 and Sept., 2009 respectively.

KCRC Bus Division placed an order for 9 Alexander Dennis Envio500 and 11 Enviro200Dart as the replacement for the first batch of Leyland Olympian and Mitsubishi MK 117J respectively. All buses mentioned above started to serve passengers since early 2008. A further 15 Enviro500 were acquired during 2009 to replace all remaining Leyland Olympian. Alexander Dennis successfully gained another purchasing order from MTR Bus in 2010. This order included 9 Enviro500 11.3m and 9 Enviro400 for replacing the aging single decker with Northern Counties bodyworks. MTR Bus is the second bus operator introduced the production unit of Enviro400 in Hong Kong.

Not only the East Rail Line and West Rail Line provided feeder bus service, Airport Express also provided shuttle service between Kowloon and Hong Kong Station and hotel and central business area. Tai Fung Coach Company, a subsidiary company of Kwoon Chung Group, is authorised  to run this service since 1998.
