KCRC Model Passenger Selection
 
To raise safety awareness among passengers using East Rail, the Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) organised a Model Passengers Selection on 13 February at Hung Hom Station. Three model passengers who used the Escalator and Lift safely were presented with shopping coupons as a token of appreciation.
This event was one of the activities in the KCRC Safety Campaign. Other publicity activities have included putting up posters, distributing safety leaflets and deploying Safety Ambassadors to help passengers use the escalator and lift safely.
Mr Herman Chung, KCRC Safety Manager, said that Passenger Safety is one of the top priorities of the Corporation.
 
KCRC Model Passenger Mrs Lung Ho Kwan, aged 70, was selected because she always holds the handrail while using the escalator.
Another KCRC Model Passenger, Mr Cheung Chiu, was selected because he uses the lift when carrying bulky luggage.
