Long Win Bus | 12-metre Volvo Olympian

Long Win Bus Company Limited ("LWB") started its operations on 22 May 1997. At that time only ten 12-metre Volvo Olympians, registered on 7 May 1997, were used. In 1999, the 12-metre Olympians, followed by the 11-metre buses of the same model, were transferred to Kowloon Motor Bus. The transfer of the Volvo buses made LWB a "Dennis-only" bus company for a long period of time.
