More eligible for JoyYou Card

The Government today announced that eligible people born in 1959 can apply for the JoyYou Card from tomorrow via the Octopus App mobile application or by posting application forms.   The JoyYou Card is a personalised Octopus Card tailor-made for the Government Public Transport Fare Concession Scheme for the Elderly & Eligible Persons with Disabilities ($2 Scheme).   It carries a personal photo and the holder's name for identification. Each eligible person will be issued with one card only.   The card will be sent to the applicant's Hong Kong postal address within four weeks upon receipt of the completed application.   The Government will subsidise the $20 fee for eligible people's first application.   For eligible people born in 1957 and 1958, a total of about 195,000 applications have been received so far, representing about 83% of the estimated local population born in the same years.   The Government will launch enhancement and anti-abuse measures of the $2 Scheme on February 27 next year, including lowering the eligible age from 65 to 60 to benefit more than 600,000 people aged 60 to 64. These beneficiaries will need to present their JoyYou Card to enjoy the fare concession.   Those aged 65 or above may continue to use their anonymous elder or personalised Octopus Cards to enjoy the $2 concessionary fare. Arrangements for them to apply for the JoyYou Cards will be announced in the first quarter of 2022.   Call 2266 2222 for enquiries.
