Kowloon Tong Station

Kowloon Tong Station

Kowloon Tong is a station on MTR's Kwun Tong Line and East Rail Line in New Kowloon, Hong Kong.

Kowloon Tong Station serves Kowloon Tong and its vicinity, including Yau Yat Tsuen, the Festival Walk shopping centre, City University of Hong Kong and Hong Kong Baptist University.

This station serves as one of the two interchange stations for the East Rail Line, leading up to the New Territories and entry point to mainland China. Therefore, it is one of the busiest stations in the system. Originally being the only such interchange station, its load was heavily reduced when a new interchange station was built at Tsim Sha Tsui/East Tsim Sha Tsui.

A new concourse for East Rail Line was opened on 15 April 2004 in order to increase its capacity.

On 28 September 2008, the Kwun Tong Line and East Rail Line interchanging gates were removed.

Famous quotes containing the word station:

    How soon country people forget. When they fall in love with a city it is forever, and it is like forever. As though there never was a time when they didn’t love it. The minute they arrive at the train station or get off the ferry and glimpse the wide streets and the wasteful lamps lighting them, they know they are born for it. There, in a city, they are not so much new as themselves: their stronger, riskier selves.
    Toni Morrison (b. 1931)
