KCR West Rail One-Month Pass extended
The Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation (KCRC) today announced that to satisfy popular demand, the promotional scheme of the West Rail One-Month Pass will be extended for 6 months to 30 June 2007.
Priced at $400, the West Rail One-Month Pass is valid for unlimited travel on West Rail and free transfer to Light Rail, KCR Buses and other designated feeder services. Passengers now enjoying the privilege of buying the Pass at $300, will continue to enjoy this privilege so long as they continue to buy the Pass without a break every month.
KCRC is also extending the following promotional schemes to 30 June 2007, the $2 concessionary fare of West Rail for children and senior citizens during Saturdays, Sundays and public holidays, all existing free Green Mini Bus (GMB) feeders and inter-modal discounts on East Rail and West Rail, and the West Rail Discovery Pass. Passengers who purchase Discovery Pass starting from 1 January 2007 will enjoy dedicated free feeder transport services except New World First Bus routes 701, 702 and GMB routes 81K and 95K.
The limited duration promotional scheme of $2 West Rail fare rebate for transfer from taxi, will not be extended after 31 December 2006 due to the low utilisation rate.
