MTR fares will be increased by 3.14 per cent from June 30.
However, new concessions will be introduced together with the rise of MTR fares.
According to MTR, most of the MTR riders won’t be influenced by the fare increase considering the discount offered.
Four major discount schemes are:
- 3 per cent rebate for every Octopus trip from June 30 to January 1
- Price adjustment for the MTR City Saver, Monthly Pass Extra and Tuen Mun-Nam Cheong Day Pass to be deferred by six months
- Discount of 30 cents will be introduced when changing between the MTR and more than 500 green minibus routes for Octopus passengers with effect from June 3
- A 25 per cent discount scheme for adult Octopus users exiting one of 35 core urban stations between 7.15am and 8.15am on weekdays would be extended for a year.
