Well, the online ticket booking page only has Chinese version. Thus you are suggested to purchase the tickets when you arriving there.
The HK-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge shuttle buses can depart from Macau.

Take bus Line k10 to Yinxin Garden Station, and transfer to bus Line 87 to Gongjiao Zhaohu Station, and walk north of 100m to your hotel. It takes around 1.5 hours with CNY2.
