This project addresses franchised bus emissions and their impact on disadvantaged communities in Hong Kong. Using interviews, literature reviews, and data analysis, it was found that franchised bus emissions contribute significantly to roadside pollution on main roads in Hong Kong. A modified Social Deprivation Index (mSDI) was also designed, and analysis of this showed a statistically significant (p < 0.05) relationship between high roadside air pollution and social deprivation in the districts of Wan Chai, Central/Western, and Yau Tsim Mong.
