Our Customer Service Pledge reinforces our commitment to safe, reliable and efficient journeys for our customers. It is updated annually and posted on our customer website to inform our passengers of our ambitious quantitative targets across 15 areas of performance.
To ensure we fulfil our Pledge, we consistently work to enhance customer experience alongside our continuous asset upgrades. Providing a smooth and enjoyable ride for our customers is a primary objective which is achieved through caring service and technological solutions.

During peak periods, we have deployed additional station assistants to help manage crowds at major interchange stations and support customers who require special assistance. Keeping our customers informed in real-time through various means including new LCD information display systems and a range of mobile applications is an important aspect of our people-oriented service. In 2017, we enhanced our mobile applications adding new features such as chatbot, fast exit, and fare suggestions which provides details on the most cost-effective fare options. We are proud that our digital communication efforts resulted in MTR being selected by International Data Corporation as “Hong Kong Digital Transformer of the Year” and “Asia Pacific Digital Transformer of the Year”.
To make MTR journeys more safe and enjoyable, we launched the Travel Happily Every Day in the MTR campaign to highlight the importance of positive, safe and courteous behaviour for a pleasant and comfortable traveling experience. In an effort to realise an inclusive community, we strive to ensure accessibility for all members of our community through barrier-free access to our rail and property facilities.
