Zhuhai passengers alighting at Hong Kong Boundary Crossing Facilities of the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge will be able to take buses directly to Disneyland.
Choy Siu-min, vice president of Hong Kong Disneyland Resort Communications & Public Affairs, discussed the bus amenity and more during a meeting with Zhuhai news media on May 10.
Zhuhai tourists, after passing clearance at Hong Kong Checkpoint, can take Bus B5 25 minutes to Disneyland without transfer. The route will operate from 8 to 11 am and 8 to 10 pm at intervals of 15 to 20 minutes when the bridge opens this summer.

According to a tourism sales executive, since last October the number of tourists from Zhuhai rose 10 percent over the same period last year.
