Rail Gen 2.0

Rail Gen 2.0 Next Generation Rail


We are striving to enhance our existing railway network to Rail Gen 2.0, a next generation rail that brings superior connectivity, better facilities and enhanced services to the general public.

With the extension of the Island Line to the Western District, the extension of the Kwun Tong Line to Ho Man Tin and Whampoa, the opening of the South Island Line, and the upcoming Shatin to Central Link and Express Rail Link, the existing and new rail lines will be knitted together to form a more superior railway network that will provide enhanced connectivity and accessibility to more areas and additional cross-harbour options.

Major upgrades of infrastructure and facilities are underway alongside the new lines in order to construct a better railway network for our future. Overall customer experience will be improved through the provision of new trains and new light rail vehicles, conversion of the West Rail and Ma On Shan Lines from seven-car into eight-car trains and from four-car into eight-car trains, and an upgrading of the signalling system and station facilities, such as installation of automatic platform gates, station modification works at major interchange stations, and the replacement of air-cooled chillers. We hope to provide you with a more caring and personalised experience by continuously enhancing MTR Mobile functions which provides a new customer experience under Rail Gen 2.0.

Upgrading our signalling systems for more frequent train services is now in full swing

The upgrading of the signalling systems of the East Rail, Tsuen Wan, Island and Kwun Tong lines is now in full swing. There may be a chance of disruptions to the next day's train service, but we will do our best to minimise the impact on your journeys. With a new signalling system and upgrades to other facilities, you will be able to enjoy more frequent train services.
