KCR East Rail Octopus Card promotions
 
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation will launch two Octopus bonus point promotion programmes for East Rail in June: one for the chance to earn bus coupons for family outings in the countryside on Father’s Day, and the other to win aromatherapy body care products.
During the "Enjoy the Countryside on Father’s Day" promotion, KCR East Rail will operate shuttle buses between University Station and Ma On Shan Country Park, and between Sheung Shui Station and Tai Lam (Tai Tong) Country Park. Passengers can earn bonus points for bus coupons on these shuttle routes by travelling with an Octopus card from 2 to 14 June on East Rail. One bonus point will be earned for every East Rail journey. With three bonus points accumulated on the same Octopus card in a week, two bus coupons to Ma On Shan or Tai Lam (Tai Tong) Country Park can be redeemed. Redemptions can be made at the Ticket Office of Kowloon Tong, Sha Tin, Tai Po Market and Sheung Shui stations.
In the second promotion, passengers who earn six bonus points can choose a bottle of aromatherapy body care products (150ml), including body lotion, hair Shampoo and conditioner, worth $99 at all East Rail ticket offices (except Racecourse). The last redemption date is 15 June.
Shuttle bus coupons and aromatherapy body care products are available on a first-come first-serve basis, while stock lasts.
For further programme details, passengers can call the KCR East Rail Customer Services Hotline on 2602 7799 or refer to the posters at East Rail stations.
