Ma On Shan Rail One-Month Pass on sale from 25 December
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) announced that the newly introduced Ma On Shan Rail One-Month Pass will be available for sale starting 25 December at the ticket offices of all Ma On Shan Rail stations and East Rail stations (except Lo Wu and Racecourse).
Ma On Shan Rail One-Month Pass will be launched on 1 January 2006 for a period of six months. Priced at only $200, the Pass is valid in the purchase month for unlimited journeys on Ma On Shan Rail between Wu Kai Sha Station and Che Kung Temple Station, and transfers from Ma On Shan Rail to East Rail on the standard class service between East Tsim Sha Tsui Station and Sheung Shui Station (excluding Lo Wu and Racecourse stations). Pass holders can also travel for free on East Rail feeder buses.
Passengers using the Pass are reminded to observe the following:
Normal fare for the second journey will be deducted when re-entering the same station within 20 minutes with the same pass;
Fare difference will be deducted for travelling with the first class service of East Rail.
Current holders of the East Rail One-Month Pass (ER Pass) can shift to the MOSR Pass. Passengers who now enjoy the $300 privileged price of the ER Pass can shift to the MOSR Pass, and can revert to the $300 ER Pass in later months if they continue to buy the MOSR Pass consecutively every month by using the same Octopus card. Otherwise, they will have to pay the normal price of ER Pass at $380.
