政府近年大力推行巴士重組計劃,二零一三年七月十四日開始,港島區推行多個大型重組,當中23A,25C及529取消服務,而在眾多重組項目中,由於最影響到居民往返寶馬山,取消25C是當中最具爭議性。25C是一九九八年城巴接管原中巴經營十四條路線下的產物,跟25A同日開辦,以順逆時針路線方式,替代原中巴11A及25M。

Effective from 14 Jul., 2013, Island route 23A, 25C and 529 were cancelled as a result of routes rationalization imposed by Transport Department.
