    The application arrangements

    The Transport Department has issued letters to inform eligible registered owners of local non-franchised public buses, school private light buses and local hire cars of the detailed arrangements for the subsidy under the sixth round of the Anti-epidemic Fund in late March 2022. Eligible registered owners are required to submit the required documents to the Transport Department on or before 30 June 2022. After the Transport Department has verified the submission, the subsidy will be disbursed through autopay in about one to two months.
