Also included in MTR Mobile is a redesigned MTR Club user interface. Users can register as a club member, check MTR Club information and view eNewsletter easily. During the promotion period of the Bonus Point Scheme, users can also check their bonus points and redeem their gifts anytime, anywhere!
Currently, the MTR has in place a notification system whereby a Red Alert will be issued if train service has been or is expected to be seriously delayed for more than 20 minutes and depending on different circumstances, passengers are advised to change routes or take other means of transport. In addition, severe tropical cyclones or typhoons affecting Hong Kong will also bring adjustments to normal train service levels, with service in open sections suspended when a No. 9 signal is issued.
MTR Mobile informs subscribers when a Red Alert is issued and provides information on the resulting changes in train service. It will also provide advisories on the stepping up and stepping down of train service during typhoons.
This application offers both Chinese and English versions. It also supports offline search for Journey Planner, MTR Exits, shops & station info. You can also manage the data update in here. MTR Mobile supports smartphones (tablets excluded) running Android OS 2.3 or OS 4.0 with screen resolutions of 480x800, 720x1280 or 800x1280.
