Causeway Bay is a primary shopping district in Hong Kong with exits from the MTR leading directly into major outlets such as Sogo and Times Square, which can be accessed through a long, upward sloping pedestrian walkway at Exit A.
Unlike other MTR stations, there are three different concourses in Causeway Bay station. After exiting the paid areas through the turnstiles, the other two concourses are inaccessible underground. The west and east concourses were opened on 31 May 1985 with the opening of the station, while the south concourse and Exit A were opened in 1994 with the opening of Times Square.

Plans to expand Causeway Bay Station
|This section is outdated. (June 2014)|
In November 2006, MTR announced they would build an underground shopping mall and expand the current Causeway Bay station. The station will add 5 new exits:
- E1: East Point Road
- E2: Great George Street at Hong Kong Building
- F1: Former Hennessy Center
- F2: Yee Wo Street at McDonald's Building
- F3: Paterson Street
and the current Exit E (Great George Street next to The Body Shop) will be removed. The plan also triples the current station size.
