The Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce (HKGCC) will celebrate its 153rd anniversary with another “Free Ride Day” on May 29, 2014. To mark down the HKGCC’s establishment in 1861, visitors and locals are invited to participate in this special celebration event and can enjoy free rides on Hong Kong’s popular and iconic Star Ferries and Ding Ding Trams. For an entire day, everyone will be able to ride Hong Kong’s Ding Ding trams between Kennedy Town and Shau Kei Wan as well as the Star Ferry between Tsim Sha Tsui and Central/Wan Chai for free.
The “Free Ride Day” event has been launched three years ago to celebrate the 150th anniversary of Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce. Due to the huge success the Hong Kong General Chamber of Commerce decided to repeat the “Free Ride Day” event in the following years (for more information about previous events take a look “Free Ride Day” event in 2012 and 2013). Aside giving people from all walks of life the opportunity to enjoy some savings on public transportation, this special event purpose is to enhance the public awareness of the chamber as the voice of business as well as to show their way of caring for the community and bringing Hong Kong’s community closer together.
The HKGCC added two new features for the “Free Ride Day” Event 2014. The first one are special designed trams with the company’s names and logos printed on individual t-shirts on the trams panels. Passengers taking Hong Kong’s iconic tram and looking out of the windows will look like if they wear special designed t-shirts. Friends and family can enjoy taking special fun photos. These special designed trams will run from mid May until mid June. The second feature will be a photo booth at the Central Pier Link Building. Passengers who wish the HGCCC “Happy Birthday” can enjoy some free picture shooting and take a printout at home or post the softcopies on Facebook, Instagram and co.
