PR008/15 29 January 2015 MTR Celebrates the Auspicious Year of the Goat with a Commemorative Ticket Set Two joyful goats are celebrating the start of an auspicious Year of the Goat with MTR passengers as they accompany them to visit relatives and friends on the first day of the Lunar New Year. The two goats are making graceful appearances on the MTR Year of the Goat Commemorative Ticket Set which will be available for sale beginning this Sunday (1 February 2015). The Commemorative Ticket Set includes two souvenir tickets, one featuring traditional Chinese art derived from the famous painting “Sheep and Goat” by Yuan Dynasty artist Mr Zhao Mengfu, and the other featuring a contemporary illustration by modern US artist and designer Mr Joshua Brill. The Commemorative Ticket Set includes a specially designed ticket holder and 20 exquisite “lai see” with greetings for a joyous and successful Year of the Goat. “The goat is often seen as a graceful, joyful and energetic creature. As we welcome the Year of the Goat, the MTR wishes Hong Kong people a happy and prosperous Year of the Goat,” said Ms Jeny Yeung, Commercial Director of MTR Corporation. “The MTR Lunar New Year Commemorative Ticket Set has, through the years, become a part of the tradition of Chinese people visiting relatives and friends to deliver warm personal greetings by offering passengers a whole day of unlimited rides on the MTR. The souvenir tickets featuring images of the goat can also be an ideal gift for passengers to wish their relatives and friends a year of joy and success,” she added. Priced at HK$68 each, the Commemorative Ticket Sets will be available at all MTR and Light Rail Customer Service Centres (except Airport Express, Lo Wu, Lok Ma Chau and Racecourse stations) while stocks last.
