Kai Tack Motor Bus Company

HF: Our recently posted article, Wong Kwong-tin, manager of the Kai Tak Company, Managing Director of the Kai Tak Motor Bus Company, linked below, says “he is also pioneer Managing Director of the Kai Tak Motor Bus Company, which has been a most important factor in, and largely responsible for, the development of the Kowloon Peninsula.”

Here are a few snippets about the company, which appears to have been spelt Kai Tack rather than Kai Tak. Very many thanks to IDJ for sending the bus images.

I would be grateful for any further information about or images of the company.

“In 1923, The Kai Tack Motor Bus Company Limited (The Kai Tack Motor Bus Co. Ltd.) started the Tsim Sha Tsui Ferry Pier to Kai Tak Bund in Kowloon City via Ma Tau Chung to serve residents of the bund area.” (1)
