Transport fare subsidy extended

The Transport Department today said the temporary measure to relax the monthly transport expenses threshold of the Public Transport Fare Subsidy Scheme from $400 to $200 will be extended till December 31.   The monthly cap of the subsidy will also be temporarily increased from $400 to $500 from April 1 to December 31, the department added.   During the period from April 1 to December 31, the Government will provide a subsidy amounting to one-third of the actual public transport expenses in excess of $200, subject to a maximum of $500 per month for each Octopus.   The department reminded commuters that they can collect the subsidy of the previous month from the 16th of each month. The subsidy for each month is valid for collection within three months.     Commuters can also check their record of public transport expenses and subsidy amount through the Octopus app or the scheme’s hotline 2969 5500.
