KCR East Rail regulates Lo Wu train services to cope with the passenger flow during the long holidays
KCR East Rail anticipates a lot of passengers will make use of the holiday of the National Day and the Chung Yeung Festival to travel to the Mainland. To provide a pleasant journey for passengers, KCR East Rail will closely monitor the passenger flow at Lo Wu and other stations and regulate the train services accordingly to ensure a smooth cross-boundary flow.
"As with the past long holidays, KCR East Rail will closely monitor the flow of passengers to Lo Wu and regulate the train services as required in order to tie in with the handling capacity of the boundary authorities both on Hong Kong and Shenzhen sides during the peak period," said Mr Cheung Kam Ming, Acting KCR East Rail Customer Services Manager.
If passengers want to enquire the cross-boundary arrangements at Lo Wu during the holidays, they could call the East Rail Customer Services Hotline on 2602 7799 before starting their journeys. The hotline information will be updated every half an hour.
