KMB and LWB Offer Free Rides for Disabled on International Day of Persons with Disabilities
To support the International Day of Persons with Disabilities 2021, KMB and LWB will offer people with disabilities and one accompanying carer free rides on 14 November 2021 (Sunday)1.
Qualified passengers are required to show the “Registration Card for People with Disabilities” or tap their personalised Octopus card for “Persons with Disabilities”. The amount deducted for such Octopus transactions will be set at $0 on that day. One accompanying carer will be offered free rides as well.
KMB and LWB bus fleets are equipped with various accessible facilities, including a super-low floor, a ramp, wide entrance and exit doors, non-slip flooring and a wheelchair space. Some buses provide two parking positions for wheelchairs. They are mainly assigned on routes travelling via hospitals, and stickers showing “Double Wheelchair Parking Space” are displayed on the windshield.
Inside the compartment, we have the “Bus Stopping” Indicator and the Bus Stop Announcement System to remind passengers of bus stop information by sound and text. App1933, a smartphone app, also has a reminding function to help passengers.
Passengers may call the KMB Customer Service Hotline on 2745-4466, Long Win Customer Service Hotline on 2261-2791, or visit KMB and LWB website or App1933 for more details.
１ Not applicable to Routes P960 and P968
On some buses with double parking spaces, a sticker will be displayed on the front of bus.
Through the App1933, passengers may check if there are any parking spaces on the next trip. If yes, a wheelchair sign will be shown next to the departure time/arrival time.
