Citybus Limited ( ) is one of the three major bus operators in Hong Kong. It provides both franchised and non-franchised bus service. The franchised route network serves mainly Hong Kong Island, cross-harbour routes (between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon/New Territories), Ocean Park, North Lantau (Tung Chung and Hong Kong Disneyland) and Hong Kong International Airport. The non-franchised routes serve mainly City One Shatin. It also provides bus rental services and staff bus services for some large companies such as TVB and China Light and Power.

The company is wholly owned by Chow Tai Fook Enterprises and NWS Holdings, which together also own the third largest operator, New World First Bus.

From 1984 to 2001 the company offered a cross-border service (Hong Kong <> China) using mainly Leyland Olympians, but this was discontinued due to stiff competition. However, from 2007, Citybus began route B3, which goes to Shenzhen's Bay Port.

The livery of Citybus's buses is yellow, red and blue.
