All Aboard for Free Ride Day
Here at the Chamber we are getting ready for one of our most important events, Free Ride Day, which will take place on 29 November. Every year on Free Ride Day, everyone in Hong Kong can enjoy free travel all day on the tram and the two cross-harbour Star Ferry routes.
Like the Chamber, the tram and ferry services have been operating for more than a century. They are a key part of Hong Kong’s history as well as essential links in our city’s excellent public transport network.
The trams and Star Ferries are appreciated by locals for their convenience and by tourists for their historic charm – not to mention the wonderful views they provide of our beautiful city.
Free Ride Day is held to mark the Chamber’s anniversary and this year we celebrate 157 years. This makes us the longest established business chamber in Hong Kong, but we also remain the most dynamic, with a wide range of seminars, talks, networking opportunities, overseas business missions and much more.
Free Ride Day is one of our signature events, and every year around 300,000 people enjoy the benefits of free trips. The whole event is made possible by the Chamber member companies who sponsor the occasion to show their support for the local community.
Giving back to the whole community in Hong Kong is a key part of our mission at HKGCC. Free Ride Day is a fun and also meaningful event that is well appreciated by residents and visitors alike. Jump on board, and we hope to see you on 29 November!
