Summer offers on KCR East Rail
This summer, the Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) will be offering even more offers to its passengers who travel with an Octopus card. In addition to the existing Second Trip Discount Scheme, passengers travelling with an Octopus card will also have the chance to earn discount coupons for Cafe de Coral and $10 coupons for the movie "Good Times, Bed Times"
The Second Trip Discount Scheme for domestic East Rail passengers will continue until 31 August 2003. Under the scheme, a 20% fare discount will be offered to all Octopus card users on the second trip for two domestic rides made within the same day.
In addition to this scheme, passengers will be able to earn one bonus point for every ride on East Rail with an Octopus card between 21 July and 17 August 2003. Three bonus points accumulated on the same Octopus card within a week will earn passengers a set of two Cafe de Coral discount coupons. New offers will be introduced every week. Redemptions can be made at all Ticket Offices (except Racecourse) in East Rail stations. Each set of discount coupons consists of one $5 Cafe de Coral cash coupon and one special coupon for breakfast, lunch, tea or dinner meal set.
Another offer, valid between 21 July and 10 August 2003, will entitle passengers to receive a $10 discount coupon for the movie "Good Times, Bed Times" when they redeem the Cafe de Coral discount coupons. All discount coupons 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 and leaflets at East Rail stations.
