HZM Bus HZMB Macau Port HZMB Hong Kong Port 001

The HZM Bus Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge Shuttle Bus is the main transport link on the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge. Running 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year, the HZM Bus Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge Shuttle Bus plies only on the restricted area on the Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge between the HZMB Hong Kong Port and HZMB Macau Port or HZMB Zhuhai Port.

As I was heading to Hong Kong International Airport to catch my flight, I chose to head back to Hong Kong by the HZM Bus Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge Shuttle Bus as it would be a lot nearer than getting the ferry back to downtown Hong Kong, and a lot cheaper than getting the infrequent direct ferry to Skypier.

The HZM Bus Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge Shuttle Bus fare for a daytime journey between 6.00am and 11.59pm costs MOP65 (~S$10.97). You can pay with Macau Pass, Octopus, Visa, Mastercard, Cash, mPay, WeChat Pay, Alipay, UnionPay, and QuickPass, which is more convenient for me.

My ticket for the HZM Bus Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge Shuttle Bus from HZMB Macau Port (Posto Fronteiriço da Ponte Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau / 澳门口岸) to HZMB Hong Kong Port (澳门口岸).

Once done with ticket purchase, the path leads to security and customs clearance, followed by immigration clearance. After which, there is a junction to lead you to HZMB Zhuhai Port (but why would you do that when you should be using Border Gate?) or to Hong Kong ie. the HZM Bus shuttle bus.

There is another HZM Bus Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge Shuttle Bus ticket counter here just in case you haven’t bought your ticket. And no, you’re not allowed to walk to Hong Kong for obvious reasons.

You can’t miss the bus bay for the HZM Bus Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge Shuttle Bus with this big sign and the many gold buses behind it.

The interior of the MAN RR2 with SC Chivalrous bodywork. What an uninspiring bus ride, feels like I’m going to Parkway instead of going to Hong Kong.

Before departure, a ground crew ensures that all passengers have their seat belts on.

I was hoping to get the MAN A22 bus, but seems that luck was not on my side.

Not that my luck was about to get better with the amount of single-deck buses on standby.

The HZM Bus Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge Shuttle Bus has a speed indicator facing passengers, just like the minibuses in Hong Kong.

There is an annoyingly slow speed limit of 80km/h on this rather straight bridge, which will be further reduced to 60km/h on days of bad weather or visibility.

Overall, a fuss-free journey with the HZM Bus Hong Kong–Zhuhai–Macau Bridge Shuttle Bus with frequent departures and no confusions since there’s only one way to get across from Macau to Hong Kong.

Next, to get to Hong Kong International Airport to catch my flight back to Singapore.
