  • The role of goods vehicle is to provide service for the carriage of goods. Passengers should not use light goods vehicle (LGV) as a mode of passenger public transport. Wherever you want to go, you should not hire the service of a LGV even if you have some things to carry as long as you are able to carry such things yourself and travel by public transport.


  • In accordance with the ordinance, no person shall:
    (a) drive or permit other person to drive a LGV for carriage of passengers for hire or reward;
    (b) solicit or attempt to solicit any person for hire or reward to travel in a LGV.
    Any person who contravenes the ordinance is liable to a fine of $5,000 and 3 months' imprisonment on a first conviction, and to a fine of $10,000 and 6 months’ imprisonment on a subsequent conviction.


  • When a LGV is used for carriage of passengers for hire or reward, the third party insurance covering the vehicle may become invalid.
