Lyndon Rees is the Welsh-born bus manager who led the transformation of Hong Kong bus services in the 1970s and 1980s. SIMON AYRES met up with him on a recent visit there where he is now retired.
I am apprehensive about meeting Lyndon Rees, although this is the highlight of my visit to Hong Kong. Anyone with knowledge of Hong Kong bus operations will associate him with Citybus, whose striking yellow air conditioned double-deckers are active in every corner of the former British colony. I hope to learn much more about this living legend, who left South Wales for Hong Kong in the 1960s and went on to found one of the most iconic bus companies in the territory.
