History[edit]

The stop was opened to the public on September 18, 1988, as Ferry Pier Stop (屯門碼頭站). On the previous day, the Light Rail Transit system was declared open by Anne, Princess Royal, at this stop; the commemorative plaque she unveiled still remains intact. The stop was renamed Ferry Pier Terminus (屯門碼頭總站) later.

On June 13, 2010, the terminus was renamed Tuen Mun Ferry Pier Stop (屯門碼頭站).

Hazard to pedestrians[edit]

As from the planning of this Light Rail station, the pathway for the pedestrian is very close to the rail. When a pedestrian wants to cross from one platform to another platform, there will be a hazard to the pedestrian when a train is also approaching to that platform. However, some pedestrian crossing signal lights were added. When a train is approaching to a platform, a yellow light will be lighted to inform people a train is approaching.

The biggest terminal[edit]

As there are six light rail line uses this station as their terminal, 507 (to Tin King direction), 610 (to Yuen Long Terminal direction), 614 (to Yuen Long Terminal direction), 615 (to Yuen Long Terminal direction), 614P (to Siu Hong direction), 615P (to Siu Hong direction), this station- Tuen Mun Ferry Pier Terminal Light Rail Stop became the biggest station and terminal of Hong Kong Light Rail Train System. There is a passenger service centre (for Light Rail Train passengers) in this stop.
