West Rail passengers enjoy more interchange discounts
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) announced that starting from today, West Rail passengers will be able to enjoy free connection between West Rail Tsuen Wan West Station and Kwai Fong MTR Station on green minibus route 87M. Route 87M runs between Tsuen Wan Transport Complex and Container Terminal No.4 at a full fare of $5. An interchange discount of $2.7 will be offered to West Rail passengers who travel the whole journey.
The route will provide a service between 06:30 and 23:30 daily at a frequency of 10 – 15 minutes. To enjoy the concession, passengers must use an Octopus card and take the minibus within 45 minutes after exiting the West Rail Tsuen Wan Station, or continue their journeys on West Rail from the Station within two hours of boarding the minibus.
The interchange concession is one of the latest initiatives of the Corporation to enhance the connectivity of West Rail in order to bring more benefits to West Rail passengers.
KCRC has prepared publicity materials such as posters and leaflets to inform the public of the new interchange concession. For enquiries, passengers may call the KCRC Hotline at 2929 3399 and the operator hotline at 2612 0290.
