More interchange discounts for KCR East Rail passengers
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) today announced that KCR East Rail passengers will enjoy a fare discount of $1 for interchanging with green minibus route 21K starting from Monday (26 April 2004).
Green minibus route 21K is a circular route plying between East Rail Mong Kok Station and the Olympian City of Tai Kok Tsui. The full fare of the route is $3.5 and the sectional fare is $3.
Passengers using Octopus cards can enjoy the fare discount provided that they take the minibus within 45 minutes of exiting Mong Kok Station, or continue their journeys on East Rail from Mong Kok Station within two hours of boarding the minibus.
KCRC General Manager, Marketing Mr Michael Lai said, "This interchange concession is one of the Corporation’s initiatives to provide KCRC passengers better value for money service."
This interchange concession scheme will be valid for six months and the Corporation will review the scheme at the end of the period.
At present, East Rail passengers also enjoy a $1 fare discount for interchanging with bus route 701 (West Rail Nam Cheong Station to East Rail Mong Kok Station) or minibus route 79K (East Rail Mong Kok Station to Park Avenue).
