Glittering public transport!
One is so taken in by the mighty double deckers in HK that one tends to ignore the smaller 'Public Light Bus' types. Sixteen seaters, these are either green top (following fixed routes with fixed stops, they do accept Octopus smart cards) and red top, or maxi cabs, which run fixed routes, but can be stopped anywhere on demand. The red tops do not accept Octopus cards. Here a glittering green top Toyota Coaster Public Light Bus waits at a signal near the Star Ferry on HK Island. Hong Kong, Jan/ Feb. 2012.
