The MTR train system partially reopened today (October 6) but 38 stations remained closed.

In an advisory, the MTR said its train service will remain open only up to 9 pm while the Disneyland Resort Line and the Ma On Shan Line were temporarily suspended.

“Part of MTR train service is resumed today, however, due to serious vandalism, some stations will not be opened for service, damaged facilities and station entrances/exits in other stations need time to repair,” the MTR said.

It added that the trains in the partially reopened lines will also run at “six-minute intervals.”

It said the Tsuen Wan Line was working but 10 stations remained closed: Admiralty, Tsim Sha Tsui, Jordan, Mong Kok, Prince Edward, Sham Shui Po, Cheung Sha Wan, Kwai Fong, Tai Wo Hau and Tsuen Wan stations are closed.

The Kwun Tong Line trains are also running but they will not stop at Mong Kok, Prince Edward, Lok Fu, Wong Tai Sin, Kowloon Bay, Ngau Tau Kok, Kwun Tong and Tiu Keng Leng stations because they are closed.

Island Line has resumed operations but seven stations are closed: Sai Ying Pun, Sheung Wan, Admiralty, Wan Chai, Causeway Bay, Tin Hau and Fortress Hill.

The South Island Line trains are running but Admiralty Station is closed, the MTR said.

The Tseung Kwan O line is back but the stations in Tiu Keng Leng, Tseung Kwan O, Hang Hau, Po Lam and LOHAS Park stations are closed.

Tung Chung Line trains are also running but Sunny Bay and Tung Chung stations remain shut down.

Trains on the East Rail Line are running but they will not stop in Tai Wai, Sha Tin, Tai Po Market, Fanling and Sheung Shui stations because they are closed.

Trains on the West Rail Line are also back but the East Tsim Sha Tsui, Tsuen Wan West, Yuen Long, Tin Shui Wai and Tuen Mun stations are closed.

“Crowd management measures may have to be implemented in some stations and train service may be adjusted,” the MTR said.

“These measures could include closing station entrances/exits, trains not stopping at certain stations or station closures,” it added.
