Light Rail & Bus Services

Hong Kong's Light Rail network has been an integral part of daily life in the northwestern New Territories since 1988. As more new towns have been established, the Light Rail network has expanded, too. Following the opening of the Tin Shui Wai extension in 2003, the system now covers 68 stops across 36.15kms of track. In addition to serving the growing population of the New Territories, the expanded network also doubles as a feeder service for the MTR at its Tuen Ma Line interchanges at Yuen Long, Tin Shui Wai, Siu Hong and Tuen Mun stations.

To further add to your convenience when using the Light Rail service, the MTR provides feeder bus services to and from many MTR stations in the New Territories. When using your Octopus Card, you will also enjoy an integrated fare system that offers free travel on the feeder bus services that link many housing estates to designated stations.

Notice to All Passengers
  1. The prime objective of ticket inspections is to protect the interests of the fare paying passengers. Ticket inspections will be carried out by Light Rail officials inside LRV compartments and at platforms. A passenger must hold a validated Octopus or a valid single journey ticket whilst travelling on Light Rail, and produce it to any Light Rail official for inspection.
  2. Each Octopus or single journey ticket is valid for a single journey from the stop where the Octopus is validated or ticket is issued to one other stop in a single direction without repeating any stop. A passenger is required to re-validate Octopus or buy another appropriate single journey ticket for return or another journey (including all circular routes).
  3. Any child aged 3 years or above but under 12 years or any person aged 65 years or above is entitled to use a concessionary ticket. Any person aged between 12 years and 64 years (and not having 「Student Status」 / 「Persons with Disabilities Status」 encoded on their Personalised Octopus) must pay the full adult fare. Each adult passenger accompanied by more than two children under 3 years of age must purchase a ticket for each child exceeding two in number.
  4. A single journey ticket is only valid for traveling to another stop within the fare zone(s) in the direction imprinted on the ticket. Any passenger who wishes to travel to any other stop, not within the fare zone(s) or not in the direction imprinted on the ticket, is required to buy another appropriate single journey ticket.
  5. A validated Octopus or a single journey ticket is valid for two hours. After the validity period, the validation or the ticket shall expire and become invalid.
  6. Ticket Inspection Team consists of Light Rail officials authorized to enforce the Mass Transit Railway (North-west Railway) By-law. Any passenger breaching the By-law shall produce proof of his identity and provide personal particulars when requested to do so by a Light Rail official. The collection of personal data from By-law offenders by the Corporation is in compliance with the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance.
  7. Any person travelling without a validated Octopus or a valid single journey ticket is liable to pay a surcharge (50 times the prevailing maximum adult single fare), and prosecution.

The time limit for any interchanges is 30 minutes from the exit validation to the entry validation.
    9.2 Interchange between Light Rail / MTR and Bus
    Interchange must take place within 60 minutes from Light Rail / MTR to Bus after the Octopus is validated at the Light Rail / MTR exit processor, or within 60 minutes from Bus to Light Rail / MTR after the Octopus is validated at the bus processor.
