Children in Hong Kong aged between 3 and 11 years old can ride more than 450 bus routes for free this summer. The Kowloon Motor Bus Company, aka KMB, announced that it would give unlimited free rides to kids with Child Octopus cards on all KMB and Long Win Bus (LWB) routes, except for the K12, K14, K17, and K18.

The offer covers 10 days during the summer holidays: July 1, 7, 14, 21 and 28; August 4, 11, 18 and 25; as well as September 1. During these days, the fare for passengers who tap their Child Octopus cards on the readers in these buses will be set to HK$0. 

The news comes after Hong Kong Chief Executive John Lee announced a series of freebies and discounts to mark HKSAR Establishment Day on July 1. During this public holiday, residents and tourists in the city can ride the city’s trams, light rail, and New Territories buses for free, and even get free entry to Hong Kong Wetland Park and indoor and outdoor venues run by the Leisure and Cultural Department.
