KMB Launches “KMB Fare Saver” Scheme with tertiary education institutions Offers $2 Fare Rebate

The Kowloon Motor Bus Company (1933) Limited (“KMB”) is introducing the “KMB Fare Saver” Scheme, which will be effective from 17 December 2018. Adult and Student Octopus card holders who swipe their Octopus card at a designated Fare Saver kiosk on the campuses of five tertiary education institutions within three hours of taking a bus trip will enjoy a $2 fare rebate.


There is no limit on the number of rebates that may be enjoyed by a passenger per day. Existing bus-bus interchange schemes and all existing promotional fare schemes such as the same-day return fare concession scheme remain valid after passengers collect their rebate at the Fare Saver kiosk. The rebate will be deducted from the total monthly fare expense in respect of the Government’s imminent Public Transport Fare Subsidy Scheme.


KMB is promoting the use of public transport by exploring innovative initiatives so that passengers will enjoy safe, economical and convenient journeys. Five tertiary education institutions have agreed to participate in the scheme, namely Hong Kong Baptist University, The Education University of Hong Kong, The Open University of Hong Kong, Hong Kong Shue Yan University and The Hang Seng University of Hong Kong.


KMB is in discussions with other tertiary institutions concerning the scheme, including The Hong Kong University of Science and Technology which will install a kiosk on campus soon. KMB expects more institutions to join the scheme, as it seeks to expand and optimise the scheme.


Eligible passenger type

Adult and Student Octopus card holders

(Except holders of Personalised Adult Octopus Card with “Persons with Disabilities Status”)

Fare Saver Scheme is valid for over 400 KMB routes, including regular routes, racecourse bus routes, overnight routes, cross-harbour bus routes (KMB solely operated), Route B1 travelling to and from Lok Ma Chau and weekend holiday special routes.
