MTR Launches "Year of the Dragon" Ticket Set
Energetic Dragons Bring Blessings to the Community

HK$120 for each set

Last year, we created a new series of MTR Chinese Zodiac Tickets by putting Chinese calligraphy and modern illustration side by side. The upcoming "Year of the Dragon" ticket set will continue the spirit by featuring the calligraphic work of retired MTR architect Abe Au and local artist Edward Li. A limited number of the new ticket sets will go on public sale on 21 January 20241. The tickets can be used for unlimited domestic journeys on the MTR 2, Light Rail, MTR Bus and MTR Feeder Bus on the first day of the Lunar New Year (10 February 2024).

The two ticket designs adopt red and gold, the most auspicious colours in traditional Chinese culture, as their main palette. We worked again with Mr Abe Au, who has provided his brushstroke of the Chinese character "dragon" for one of the tickets. The other design carries a modern depiction of the mythical creature by local artist Mr Edward Li. While in vastly different artistic styles, the two designs echo one another with their portrayals of the fierce and strong Chinese dragon, expressing wishes for good health and a great spirit in the Year of the Dragon.

The ticket set also comes with a pack of red packets, which feature the playful element – pull on the dragon carrying a gold ingot and reveal a "pictogram" formed by Li's dragon illustration interchanging with Au's calligraphic work. MTR Mobile users can also download six WhatsApp stickers inspired by the illustration by scanning the QR code on the back of the red packets and share them with friends and families as holiday greetings.

The "Year of the Dragon" ticket set, which includes two tickets of different designs, a ticket holder and eight red packets, is priced at HK$120. The ticket set will be available from 21 January 2024 to 10 February 2024 at MTR e-Store3 and MTR and Light Rail Customer Service Centres4 (unpaid area). MTR Mobile Registered Users can enjoy an exclusive price of HK$108 (Original Price: HK$120) and earn MTR Points when they order the ticket set online upon login, where they can also convert MTR Points to cash5 for payment.
