Wed, 14th Feb 2018

The Macao and Hong Kong governments have reached a consensus on the circulation of private (non-commercial) vehicles on the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao bridge and the number of vehicle quotas to be allocated per city.

Macao will hold 600 quotas for vehicles; 500 of the quotas will have a validity of 1 year and the remaining 100 quotas will have a validity of six months.

Hong Kong will hold 300 quotas with a validity of 3 years. The quotas for Macao vehicles will be issued by the Macao Transport Bureau, further details will be announced at a later date by the bureau.

It was also announced that there will be 140 shuttle buses with two routes available: Hong Kong-Macao and Zhuhai-Hong Kong. Shuttle buses will depart every 10 minutes, though authorities are looking to decrease this time to 3-5 minutes in the future.

Drivers must follow mainland China traffic rules by keeping to the right if they cross the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao bridge linking the three cities. Regardless of origin or destination, tolls on the bridge will be paid in renminbi while non-cash payment methods include bank cards, as well as electronic wallets Alipay and WeChat Pay.
