How Do I Get The Tourist Day Pass?

Tourists can download KMB’s ‘App1933’, and find the ‘eCoin’ section. They then need to enter the first four digits of their passport number to buy the pass, after which they will be directed to the payment page. They can choose to make their purchase using digital payments methods such as VISA, MasterCard, AlipayHK, Alipay, WeChat Pay, BoC Pay, and UnionPay. Once they complete the sale, they will be sent a 16-digit activation code to redeem their pass, which they will then get in the form of a QR code within 24 hours. They can then scan the code at the e-payment reader on the bus after they board.

Can I pick up my pass in person?

Alternatively, passengers can get their passes at any one of 19 designated sales points across the Hong Kong between 9am and 9pm, depending on the operating hours of each centre. Purchase points include the Lok Ma Chau bus station, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge bus terminus, and the Star Ferry Bus Terminus in Tsim Sha Tsui. They must present a valid passport to the staff, and will receive a card with the 16-digit activation code, which they can enter in the KMB app.

What routes does the pass cover?

The Tourist Day Pass can be used on more than 450 daytime and overnight KMB and LWB routes across the SAR. This includes the B1 bus to Lok Ma Chau Station and the B9 bus to the Heung Yuen Wai Control Point, as well as buses to the Hong Kong International Airport and the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macau Bridge bus terminus. However, the pass can’t be used on Routes K12, K14, K17, and K18. In addition, the routes you can use the pass on can change, so refer to the KMB website for the most up-to-date information.
