Representatives of the Hong Kong team made a breakthrough in this year's Tokyo Olympics. After fencing athlete Zhang Jialang won the gold in the men's foil, He Shibei won the silver medal for Hong Kong in the women's 200m freestyle.
KMB announced a few days ago that it will give the bus naming rights to all Hong Kong athletes participating in the Tokyo Olympics.
Each member of the representative team can name a KMB bus. The nameplate containing the naming content and information will be installed at the front of the bus compartment to commend the elite Hong Kong athletes for their fighting spirit and outstanding achievements in Dongyun.
KMB Communications and Public Affairs Director Lin Zihao pointed out on the commercial channel program this morning (30th) that some details are still to be finalized, but initially, the relevant nameplate may be placed in the driver’s cockpit or side door position. The relevant brand name will "follow me" until the bus is retired.
Lin: Communicating details with the Hong Kong Association and Olympic Committee
Lin Zihao pointed out that many buses in foreign countries do this kind of work. There is a sign in the station or in the carriage that writes tribute, commemoration, etc., and thinks that this time is "small and careful, not a big deal."
He said that the company has studied different options. The initial idea is that it is in a position "you can see it as soon as you go to the door", such as the position of the driver's cockpit, the door of the driver's seat, etc. The details are still to be studied, as for the content information. Communicate with relevant athletes, hoping to give some encouragement to outstanding athletes in Hong Kong.
For other details, we still need to communicate with the Hong Kong Association and Olympic Committee.
In terms of age, Lin Zihao said that these contents will follow the bus until it is retired, that is, "follow the first". The current bus can generally serve for 18 years, and it is hoped that more Hong Kong athletes will be awarded by that time.
When asked if there will be information provided to let people know where the bus carrying relevant athlete information is, Lin Zihao said that because the content will follow a car, the public will definitely know the route, license plate information, etc. of the bus. I believe that some bus fans are "well-informed."
In addition, the day before yesterday (28th) KMB announced that it will give away bus passenger micro-insurance "BUS RYDE" premiums to passengers holding KMB monthly passes. Passengers will enjoy additional personal property and accidental medical protection when travelling on any route, including personal insurance. A total of up to 2,000 yuan in total, such as mobile phones, headsets, wallets, etc.; and accidental medical protection up to HKD 5,000.
Lin Zihao said that on the one hand, this plan hopes to bring new technology into the business, and it also hopes to provide more protection to the most loyal passengers, and the ride experience will be better.
