Under the threat of Covid-19, many local residents are heeding the call of the government to stay home. However, many commuters have seen their monthly passes and citysavers expire, forcing them to buy new ones.
Meanwhile, the Tuen Ma Line Phase 1 has been commissioned and many residents have expressed that the fares are too high. It has put a financial burden on these commuters during this economic downturn.
We hope the MTRC will perform its social responsibilities and tide over this difficult time with the public by proactively considering the following proposals:
Lengthen the eligibility period for monthly passes by at least one month.
Review the existing fare structure and reset the fares for the West Rail Line and Tung Chung Line by comparing to the fares of the East Rail as a way to lower the current fares.
