KCRC launches Intercity Through Train e-Ticketing System
 
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) announced that it would launch its Intercity Through Train e-Ticketing System on 28 June 2005. The new services will allow travellers to purchase Guangzhou-Kowloon Through Train tickets on the Internet anywhere in the world.
Starting from tomorrow, travellers can purchase tickets simply by going to the website (www.throughtrain.kcrc.com). The e-Ticketing system has a "Ticket Express" function enabling travellers to purchase train tickets online. Passengers who have purchased tickets on the Internet can collect their tickets at the Intercity Passenger Services Centre at Hung Hom Station 20 minutes before train departure.
At present, travellers can also buy through train tickets over the Intercity Tele-ticketing and Enquiry Hotline (2947-7888) or at designated KCR stations or appointed ticketing agents.
