The Transport Department (TD) issued a reminder to those who have received a vehicle tag but not yet opened an HKeToll account to do so. They will need to open an account and set up their payment option so that they can pay tunnel tolls through the HKeToll service.
Commercial vehicle owners and rental drivers can split the tolls by using the HKeToll mobile app, monthly statement or two-piece device (i.e. driver card and card holder).
TD said that more than 610,000 vehicle tags have been issued as of 3 April, of which over 62 percent of vehicle owners had opened HKeToll accounts.
With effect from 7 May, a deposit of HK$100 will be refunded when a rental driver of commercial vehicles (including taxis and public light buses) returns the first driver card they purchased, provided that the card functions properly and is not damaged.
The department will continue to strengthen the publicity on the HKeToll services through various channels, including television, radio, newspapers, social media platforms and more.
