The current MTR system map

This is a list of the stations of the MTR, the metro system in Hong Kong, sorted according to their service lines. After the merger with the Kowloon–Canton Railway on 2 December 2007, the operations of the East Rail Line, the West Rail Line, the Ma On Shan Line and the Light Rail system were transferred to the MTR Corporation. The metro system currently encompasses 10 heavy rail lines and 87 stations.[1] Serving exclusively the northwestern New Territories, the light rail network comprises 12 routes, serving 68 stops. The network is being expanded and several new lines are being proposed or under construction.

Notes[edit]

  1. ^ A temporary station was actually set up at Lo Wu from the first day of Kowloon Canton Railway operations of 1 October 1910.[2] 14 October 1949 was when through-train service to Mainland China was stopped after the Communist capture of Canton on the same day, and since then, passengers to the Mainland have had to get off the train at Lo Wu and cross the Lo Wu Bridge to take another (Chinese) train to Guangzhou from Shenzhen. Lo Wu Station has since gradually developed from a "border halt" (in the words of the 1949/50 KCR Annual Report) into a proper terminal station.
  2. ^ a b Kwu Tung and Lok Ma Chau are stations on the Lok Ma Chau Spur Line, a branch from Sheung Shui Station of the East Rail Line. Kwu Tung is proposed.
  3. ^ The current station is a new station to reprovision an old one. The new one is about 0.8 kilometres (0.50 mi) south of the old one. The old Tai Po Market Station started off as a temporary flag station at KCR's opening on 1 October 1910.[4] On 11 November of the same year, it was turned into a passenger station.[5] Tai Po Market Station was then built into a Chinese Style station in 1913, discontinued as a railway station on 6 April 1983,[6] and re-opened as the Hong Kong Railway Museum on 20 December 1985.[4][7]
  4. ^ Its forerunner was Ma Liu Shui Station, which was renamed as University Station on 1 January 1967. University Station was rebuilt and moved slightly seawards to tie in with KCR electrification, and was opened on 26 April 1983.[8][9][10]
  5. ^ Racecourse Station was opened to tie in with the opening of the new Shatin Racecourse on that date. The station was upgraded and reopened on 1 October 1985 to tie in with the opening of a new grandstand at the racecourse.[11][12][13]
  6. ^ a b Fo Tan and Racecourse are parallel stations. Racecourse Station is only open when horseracing or a special event is held at Sha Tin Racecourse.
  7. ^ Originally called Yau Ma Ti Station; first renamed as Mong Kok Station on 1 January 1969, redeveloped and partially re-opened on 3 May 1982, and further renamed as Mong Kok East Station on 2 December 2007.[15][16][17]
  8. ^ a b c Mong Kok East Station of the East Rail Line and Mong Kok Station of the Tsuen Wan Line and Kwun Tong Line are not physically connected. There is pedestrian transfer via a footbridge; the journey time is approximately 10–15 minutes on foot.
  9. ^ It was first called Kowloon Station and the terminus of Kowloon Canton Railway, replacing the old Kowloon Station (terminus) at Tsim Sha Tsui. Kowloon Station was formally renamed as Hung Hom Station in February/March 1996.[18]
  10. ^ Yau Ma Tei Station is an unannounced interchange station. Changing trains in this station lacks the convenience of cross-platform interchange in Mong Kok Station. The platforms for the Kwun Tong Line and Tsuen Wan Line in Yau Ma Tei station are on separate levels.
  11. ^ Tsuen Wan Station of the Tsuen Wan Line and Tsuen Wan West Station of the West Rail Line are not physically linked, but green public light bus route 95K (free transfer with an immediate West Rail journey record on the Octopus card) connects the two stations. It normally takes 15-20 minutes to go to Tsuen Wan West Station on foot.
  12. ^ a b c d e f g h i Ceremonial opening took place on 21 June 1998, while public opening occurred on 22 June 1998
  13. ^ a b c Kowloon Station of the Tung Chung Line and Airport Express and Austin Station of the West Rail Line are not physically connected. There is pedestrian transfer via a footbridge; the journey time is approximately 10 minutes on foot.
  14. ^ Plans intend to expand Kam Sheung Road Station in the future, to act as an interchange station between the West Rail main line and the Northern Link extension. For the time being, Kam Sheung Road is a plain through-station without any interchange facilities.
  15. ^ Tsuen Wan West Station of the West Rail Line and Tsuen Wan Station of the Tsuen Wan Line are not physically linked, but green public light bus route 95K (free transfer with an immediate West Rail journey record on the Octopus card) connects the two stations. It normally takes 15-20 minutes to go to Tsuen Wan Station on foot.
