MTR Temporarily Adjusts Train Services of Two Urban Lines on Saturdays 
No Overnight Train Service on Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve 
 
In view of the latest development of the COVID-19 pandemic, the Government has implemented measures to reduce social contacts, resulting in a drop in the number of railway passengers. After prudent consideration, MTR Corporation will temporarily adjust train frequency on Saturdays on the Island and Kwun Tong lines starting from 12 December 2020 (Saturday).  Train services during weekday peak hours will remain unchanged. 
 
Besides, normal operating hours will be maintained on Christmas Eve (24 December) and New Year’s Eve (31 December) and no overnight train service will be provided. The Corporation will keep a close eye on the operations on the Winter Solstice (21 December), Christmas Eve and New Year’s Eve, and deploy additional trains to serve passengers as and when needed.
