MTR commenced railway services 40 years ago, with the aim of connecting the people of Hong Kong with their communities. MTR has had a profound impact on Hong Kong's evolution in becoming a modern metropolis. Over the past four decades, we have expanded our network in Hong Kong to 230.9km in length and covering all 18 districts. By creating new integrated communities around our network, MTR has fully immersed into the lives of Hong Kong people.
Now we have grown even further to serve different corners of the world, expanding our operations to Beijing, Shenzhen, Hangzhou, London, Stockholm, Melbourne and Sydney. With more than 40,000 dedicated staff, we are recognised as a world-class operator of sustainable rail transport services that carry over 12 million passenger journeys worldwide every weekday.
To commemorate the 40th anniversary of MTR services, we have specially designed a representative icon. It symbolises us as a key part of Hong Kong, connecting people and communities for the past 40 years. Going forwards, we will keep on our caring services to Hong Kong and our journey together continues for an even better future.
