The Group’s origin dates back to 1962 with the inauguration of a passenger ferry service between Hong Kong and Macau.

In 2003, TurboJET launched “TurboJET Airport Routes” (previously known as ‘TurboJET Sea Express’), a unique inter-regional multimodal connection of air-sea network comprising a ferry service that links major international airports in the PRD. The bonded service connects air transit passengers of the Hong Kong International Airport with Macau and various destinations in the PRD region, further strengthening connectivity amongst PRD cities and world destinations.
Today, the Group is involved in the operational management of three key ferry terminals in the region. These include the Hong Kong SkyPier, Hong Kong Tuen Mun Ferry Terminal and Macau Maritime Ferry Terminal. The management of passenger ports strategically anchors the multimodal transportation development within the region.
On land, Shun Tak & CITS Coach (Macao) Limited has an operating fleet of 141 vehicles, providing local and cross-boundary coach services between various mainland cities and Macau.
The division is one of the participating parties in a consortium that has succeeded in the tender of the sole right to operate cross-border shuttle bus, popularly known as “Golden Bus”, across the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau (HZM) Bridge. In a strategic move to further reinforce its land transport network, the division has also cooperated with veteran land transport operators to launch three additional cross-boundary land transit options via the HZM Bridge, including the “HK-MO Express”, “TurboJET Cross Border Limo”, and “Macau HK Airport Direct” services.
