Hundreds of passengers queued to take the shuttle bus at Jordan MTR Station as part of the Tsuen Wan Line suspended service today out of a door-ripped-off incident.

As of 4pm on Sunday, a free MTR shuttle bus service is operating between Lai King Station and Jordan Station for passengers as the services for this section are still blocked due to the incident.

MTR Staff members are maintaining orders at the bus stop as hundreds of passengers have to wait in line for traffic changes.

Around 750 passengers were affected during the incident this morning.

Commissioner for Transport Rosanna Law Shuk-pui said a free shuttle bus service with a three-minute interval is provided for transferring the affected passengers. Sixteen lines of buses have strengthened the services.

Secretary for Transport and Logistics Lam Sai-hung said the authorities had instructed the MTR Corporation to conduct a thorough investigation of the incident and resume services as soon as possible.

As of 4:30pm on Sunday, no resumption time was confirmed yet by MTR.

One of the affected passengers, Mr Chan, stated that it took at least 20 more minutes than usual to arrive at work. He criticises MTR that despite increasing their fare prices constantly, the services have worsened conversely.
