KCRC offers first free bus-rail interchange scheme with NWFB
 
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) will launch its first free bus-rail interchange scheme with New World First Bus Services Limited (NWFB) this Sunday (22 August).
From Sunday until 21 February 2005, West Rail passengers using Octopus cards can enjoy free interchanges with NWFB bus routes 701 and 702 and East Rail passengers using Octopus cards can enjoy free interchange with bus route 701.
Senior Director, Transport Mr Y T Li said, "KCRC is always on the lookout for new initiatives to provide passengers with services that offer the best possible value for their money. We are pleased to be offering our passengers the first free bus interchanges with NWFB, another testimony to our continuous efforts to improve the connectivity and competitiveness of West Rail and East Rail."
Route 701 and Route 702 are both circular routes. 701 plies between Nam Cheong Station and Mongkok, and Route 702 runs between Sham Shing Road and Shamshuipo via Nam Cheong Station. Apart from providing free interchanges to West Rail and/or East Rail passengers, both routes will also have their routeing changed on the same day, resulting in quicker and more direct services to Nam Cheong or Mong Kok stations.
Mr Li pointed out that since West Rail opened for service last December, KCRC has been offering a wide range of concessions for passengers. Passengers receive a 20% discount on trips between the North West New Territories and Tsuen Wan West, Mei Foo or Nam Cheong stations, and a 10% fare discount on other journeys.
Starting from mid-June, the elderly and children can also travel on West Rail for just $2 on weekends and public holidays. West Rail passengers also enjoy interchange discounts with 22 franchised bus routes (including routes 701 and 702) and eight mini-bus routes; free interchange with Light Rail, KCR Bus services and green minibus route 95K, and $1.2 interchange discounts if they transfer between the KCR and MTR networks at Nam Cheong or Mei Foo.
To promote the use of West Rail in summer, KCRC launched a West Rail Summer Monthly Pass, a Student One-Day Pass in July. A One-Month Pass, which is valid for use in the month of August, and a Student One-Day Pass, which is available from 21 July to 31 August, cost $300 and $18 respectively.
In addition, starting from this Monday, West Rail passengers using Octopus to interchange with a cross boundary bus route between Huanggang and West Rail Kam Sheung Road Station will enjoy a fare package at $25.
