Special offers on KCR East Rail
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) will be making even more special 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 redeem food products at a discounted price, movie coupons and Scratch’N Win game cards.
The Second Trip Discount Scheme for domestic East Rail passengers will continue until 30 September 2004. Under the scheme, a 20% fare discount will be offered to all Octopus card users on the second trip when taking two domestic rides within the same day.
In addition to this scheme, between 22 September and 19 October, passengers can use two bonus points (accumulated on the same Octopus card within a week) and redeem them for food products at a special price. New offers will be introduced every week. Redemptions can be made at all Ticket Offices (except Racecourse) in East Rail stations. With each redemption, passengers will receive a $10 discount coupon for the movie "Running on Karma" and a Scratch’N Win game card. Passenger will have a chance to win irresistible prizes including a mobile phone and electronic dictionary.
