The application arrangements

The Transport Department has issued letters to inform eligible registered owners of non-franchised public buses, school private light buses and hire cars of the detailed arrangements for the subsidy under the second round of the Anti-epidemic Fund. Eligible registered owners are required to submit the required documents to the Transport Department on or before 31 July 2020. After the Transport Department has verified the submission, the subsidy will be disbursed through autopay in about one month.

 

Points-to-note

The Transport Department has issued letters in early May 2020 to remind registered owners who did not hold a valid vehicle licence of the NFBs or SPLBs as at day end of 8 April 2020 that the registered owners have to renew the vehicle licence(s) (by the same registered owners) successfully on or before 7 July 2020. Vehicle licence renewed after 7 July 2020 is not eligible for the subsidy unless the Transport Department's prior agreement has been sought. If the registered vehicle owners have successfully renewed the subject vehicle licences on or before 7 July 2020, the Transport Department will notify them in due course to submit registrations for the collection of subsidy.
 
Note: Under each round of the Anti-epidemic Fund, the subsidy will be provided to each licensed NFB, SPLB, GV and hire car once only.
