     The Government has put in place the Fund (previously named the Pilot Green Transport Fund) since March 2011 to subsidise and encourage the testing and more widely the use of green innovative transport technologies for a variety of commercial transport tools, including goods vehicles, taxis, light buses, buses, vessels, motorcycles, non-road vehicles and the aforesaid transport tools of charitable/non-profit making organisations providing services to their clients. There are two categories of application under the Fund - the Applications for Trial (AT) and the Applications for Use, respectively. The former is to subsidise trials of green innovative transport technologies, whilst the latter is for direct procurement of products of technologies that have been proved under AT to be relatively mature and suitable for local adoption. The Steering Committee advises the Government on the operation of the Fund and the approval of funding for applications.
