Sham Shui Po Ferry bus terminus was one of the major bus terminuses in Kowloon. In 1992, the ferry service between Central and Sham Shui Po was terminated. However, the name of the bus terminus remained unchanged.

Due to the re-development of the West Kowloon District, the Government had decided to move the bus terminus to a new one called "Sham Shui Po (Tonkin Street)", and make room for new public housing. The new bus terminus was opened on 7 March 1999.

As at 6 March 1999, there were 6 bus routes terminating this bus terminus, photographs of buses serving these routes are as follows. Unless otherwise specified, they were taken on 28 February 1999. All these 6 routes would be terminating the aforesaid new terminus from 7 March 1999.
