Secretary for Culture, Sports and Tourism Kevin Yeung on Monday said the government has addressed transportation issues at the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal.
Cruise passengers had earlier complained about long waiting times for buses and taxis as well as the lack of options.
During a Legislative Council panel meeting, tourism sector lawmaker Perry Yiu urged the government to provide more options for incoming cruise passengers, while Starry Lee of the DAB said the existing four to five bus routes were not enough to accommodate people visiting the cruise terminal.
In response, Yeung said the government had allocated around HK$1 million to implement short-term measures to solve the problems.
He also said the authorities will make necessary adjustments for each cruise arrival to ensure a smooth experience for passengers.
"For the time being we have addressed the transport issues at the Kai Tak Cruise Terminal. It means that no matter how many cruises come to Hong Kong in the future, we have a plan with enough franchised buses, taxis, minibuses or even non-franchised buses to accommodate the passengers. We will make relevant adjustments to the arrangements according to the number of incoming cruise passengers and vessels."
The Transport Department also said it will introduce a new bus route connecting the cruise terminal and Tsim Sha Tsui next year.
