MTR in English

MTR Corporation aspires to be a leading multinational company with a vision to connect and grow communities with caring service.

The Corporation was established in 1975 with a mission to construct and operate an urban metro system for Hong Kong. In June 2000 it was re-established as MTR Corporation Limited and in October 2000 was listed on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong. On 2 December 2007 the operations of the Government-owned rail operator, the Kowloon-Canton Railway Corporation, were merged into the MTR, heralding a new era in Hong Kong railway development.

The merged rail network comprises nine commuter railway lines, a Light Rail network, an Airport Express link as well as a new High Speed Rail service connecting Hong Kong to the Mainland of China. With an average weekday patronage of nearly 5.8 million passengers in Hong Kong and 12 million passangers world wide, MTR is regarded as one of the world’s leading railway operators for safety, reliability, customer service and cost efficiency. MTR strives to grow and connect communities for a better future.

The Corporation is involved in a wide range of business activities in addition to its railway operations. These include the development of residential and commercial property projects, property leasing and management, advertising, telecommunication services and international consultancy services.

Today, from its starting base in Hong Kong, the Corporation has expanded into the Mainland of China and taken on a range of railway-related projects and operations internationally. In the Mainland China, the Corporation has been involved in the construction of and now operates Beijing Metro Line 4, Line 14 and Line 16, Shenzhen Metro Line 4 (Longhua Line) and Hangzhou Metro Line 1. The Corporation also operates and manages TfL Rail (will be renamed as "Elizabeth Line" in 2018) service in the United Kingdom, Melbourne Metro in Australia, Stockholm Metro, the Stockholm pendeltåg (Stockholm commuter rail) and MTR Express, an intercity railway between Stockholm and Gothenburg in Sweden. In September 2014, the Northwest Rapid Transit Consortium, of which the Corporation is a shareholder, was awarded the Operations, Trains and Systems Public-Private Partnership contract for the Sydney Metro Northwest project in Australia. In March 2017, First MTR South Western Train Limited, a joint venture of which the Corporation is a shareholder, was awarded the South Western rail franchise in the U.K. with effect from 20 August 2017. On top of that, the scope of the Corporation´s consultancy business also covers cities across Asia, Australia and the Middle East.

MTR has extensive end-to-end railway expertise with more than 40 years of railway projects experience from design to planning and construction through to commissioning, maintenance and operations. Going beyond railway delivery and operation, MTR also creates and manages dynamic communities around its network through seamless integration of rail, commercial and property development.

Based on the successful "rail plus property" development model in Hong Kong, the Corporation has expanded into the Mainland China with property business development and operations in Beijing, Shenzhen and Tianjin. The pre-sale of "Tiara", the first MTR property development project in the Mainland China, was well received.
