Common stored value ticket


Common stored value ticket

Common Stored Value Ticket was a system of plastic magnetically sensitive card used for paying fares on the MTR and KCR railway systems in Hong Kong from 1984 to 1999. It was also used on Citybus and KMB for some MTR and KCR feeder bus services. The system was replaced by the Octopus card system in 1997 and phased out on 2 January 1999. The MTR and KCR have continued to issue magnetic strip cards for single-journey and souvenir tickets.

History

In 1981, MTR Corporation started using magnetic strip cards as tickets. The turnstile would confiscate the ticket when the passenger leaves the subway system.

On 15 October 1984, KCR automated its ticketing system. The two companies jointly produced the Common Stored Value Ticket.

On 31 August 1998, MTR and KCR announced that the tickets were no longer to be sold. They would be replaced by the Octopus card starting on 2 January 1999.
