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 was listed on the Stock Exchange of Hong Kong in October 2000. On 2nd 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 and a high-speed Airport Express link. With an average weekday patronage of more than 5.5 million passengers in Hong Kong, MTR is regarded as one of the world’s leading railway operators for safety, reliability, customer service and cost efficiency. 

The Corporation is involved in a wide range of business activities in Hong Kong in addition to its railway operations. These include the development of residential and commercial property projects, property management, shopping malls leasing and management, advertising media and telecommunication services in trains and stations.

The Corporation also offers worldwide railway consultancy and contracting services. Clients served include metro companies, government authorities and rail system suppliers in the Mainland of China, India, Australia, the Middle East and Southeast Asia.
