Public Transport Subsidy

Make a Donation

About Our Campaign

Large Cities are unaffordable

We enable more people to look for employment by providing them with free public transport

Eligiblility for tax relief

You may be eligible for a tax deduction receipt if your donation amount exceeds $100 HKD (or the local equivalent).

The Difference Card

For people living in rural locations, finding a good job that pays sustainable wages is hard. How can Make a Difference help?

We provide the underprivileged and marginalised with a smart-card that enables free, unlimited access to all modes of public transport. Currently on trial in Hong Kong, London and Sydney, this card works just like a transit card, except it provides users with free transport, subsidised by Make a Difference.

How It Works

The smart-card is a debit card provided by Make a Difference Foundation (in pursuant to a license by MasterCard) that works exclusively on public transport. Users who satisfy confidential means-testing requirements are provided with a personalised card for unlimited use on all modes of public transit which supports NFC payments.

Use of the Make a Difference Transit Smart Card for any purpose other than exclusively for commute on public transit is a violation of the Conditions of Ticket Issuance. The Make a Difference Movement (Change for Chance) Foundation, Limited. reserves the right to reclaim losses arising from misuse, improper, negligent or fraudulent use of the Difference Smart Card.

Sustainability and your part

In terms of sustainability, if this project proves to be a success, it would be a push for our local government to allocate resources for more affordable public transport. It would also bring more attention towards the opportunity gap between cities and rural areas.
