9th November 2019 – (Hong Kong) After evaluating the risks of potential vandalism over the weekend, train service on all MTR Lines (except Airport Express), Light Rail and MTR Shuttle Bus will end at 10pm today. Repair progress at most stations has improved significantly but there is still a lot to be done. MTR will continue to assess potential risk and reduce service hours if public amenities at the stations are destroyed again. All MTR Stations remain open today until 10pm this evening.

Meanwhile, Airport Express is running normally between Hong Kong, Kowloon, Tsing Yi, Airport and AsiaWorld-Expo stations.

As requested by the Hong Kong Government and Airport Authority, starting from 10pm today, Airport Express will be running between Airport and Hong Kong stations only. Trains will not stop at Kowloon, Tsing Yi and AsiaWorld-Expo stations.

MTR staff and Airport Authority staff will check flight tickets and travel documents in Hong Kong Station. Please allow more time for travel.

In-town Check-in service will be suspended at Kowloon Station starting from 9pm. In-town Check-in service at Hong Kong Station will remain normal and please allow 90 minutes ahead of the scheduled flight time for the check-in service.

Meanwhile, Light Rail service has been adjusted:
