Special arrangement during strong wind on Desire Bridge

When the wind speed on the bridge is higher then 40 km/h, buses are not allowed on the Desire Bridge. At that time, 148 will be splited into 2 routes. One has a routing same as normal but shortened to Hospital Island (Western Hopsital), while another route goes to Container's Island only via Central - Western Bridge without stopping after Moon Island Bypass , which will be named as Route S148.

Usage Status

This route connects Container's Island, Dove Island, Northern Island (Sunshine University, North Island Estate). Therefore it has a high passenger level. The departures are frequent, every 7-10 minutes throughout the whole day.
