HKGCC Free Ride Day

HKGCC Free Ride Day was launched in 2011 as part of events to celebrate the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce’s birthday, which was established on May 29, 1861. Members of the public can ride on Hong Kong trams and the Star Ferry for free on Free Ride Day on 29 November. These are two of Hong Kong's oldest and most popular forms of transportation and, like HKGCC, have contributed significantly to the growth and prosperity of Hong Kong. In 2018, Free Ride Day will be held on 29 November to celebrate HKGCC’s 157th anniversary.
