Citybus will give passengers who use its overnight bus services 50% off their fares on National Day. The bus operator’s discounted fares will kick in at midnight on October 1, and will include the 11.45pm departures on specific routes.
The discount will apply to 23 of Citybus’ overnight N routes, and Hongkongers and visitors to the city who use Octopus cards or other forms of e-payment are eligible for these half fares. The bus operator hopes that this initiative will allow its passengers to attend late-night events that are being held across the city as part of the government-led Night Vibes Hong Kong campaign.
In addition, Citybus will provide special bus services on September 29 on the occasion of Mid-Autumn Festival for residents of the city who wish to leave work earlier. There will also be special services on Route 173R from Stanley to Tsim Sha Tsui East (Mody Road), and additional departures on Route X15 between Central (Star Ferry) and The Peak.
MTR has also announced that it will provide overnight train services on September 29, and will add about 900 train trips to its schedule for the upcoming long weekend between September 29 and October 2. All passengers can take the Light Rail and MTR buses for free on October 1, while children aged 3-11 can ride the MTR for free on this day.
