KCRC extends the West Rail discount for elderly and children
 
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) is pleased to extend the concession for children and senior citizens to ride West Rail for $2 on weekends and public holidays from 1 July until 31 December 2005 to encourage more families to use West Rail for fun and leisure outings.
Children aged between 3 and 11 and senior citizens aged 65 and over, who travel by West Rail using Octopus cards, will continue to be able to enjoy a $2 concessionary fare and free interchange with Light Rail, KCR feeder buses and other designated feeder services launched during the promotional period on weekends and public holidays.
At the same time, normal fares for Octopus card users transferring between East Rail and MTR at East Tsim Sha Tsui Station will be resumed on 1 July 2005 after the interchange discount ends as scheduled on 30 June 2005.
KCRC always makes efforts in introducing various tailor-made promotional initiatives to bring more benefits to regular passengers. For enquiries, passengers can call the KCRC Passenger Service Hotline at 2929 3399 or visit KCRC’s website (http://www.kcrc.com).
