By implementing these new measurements the passenger carrying capacity will be increased by about 3 million weekly passenger journeys. MTR train frequency will be boosted and increased. MTR passengers will enjoy more comfort and convenience after adding these additional train rides.

The remaining 530 additional weekly trips will be added later during this year to ease crowding and reduce waiting times throughout the MTR system.
