A total of 11 bus routes will be extending their late night services to the early hours of tomorrow morning – to accommodate people welcoming in the Year of the Dragon, the Transport Bureau (DSAT) has announced. That’s three more than were originally scheduled.

The bus routes are, namely, 3, 3X, 22, 23, 26A, 32, 33, MT4, 60, 61 and 65. The first eight will run until 1 am on 10 February, the last three will go until 2 am.

Passengers should beware that multiple bus routes and stops have been changed to accommodate Chinese New Year activities across the city. All buses to Taipa Village will be rerouted while the area is temporarily designated as a pedestrian zone from 10 to 18 February, between 12 pm to 7 pm.

Macao’s two public bus companies are also ramping up the number of buses plying certain routes to facilitate travel between major destinations during the Chinese New Year period. 

TCM, for example, will run its 3BX bus between Praça de Ferreira do Amaral and the Border Gates every 15-20 minutes between 4 pm to 7:30 pm. Transmac’s 25BS bus will run between Hengqin Port and Estrada da Baía de Nossa Senhora da Esperança from 12 to 17 February, between 9 am to 3 pm. 

Meanwhile, the LRT is set to operate right through the night – with its new Barra Station expected to be busy with midnight visitors to nearby A-Ma Temple, a traditional spot for welcoming in the new lunar year.
