Mong Kok East Station
is a station
on Hong Kong
's East Rail Line
. Only out-of-system interchange is available with Kwun Tong Line
and Tsuen Wan Line
at Mong Kok Station
via a footbridge
. The station opened in 1910 as Yaumati Station
(different from MTR Yau Ma Tei Station), and a new building was built in 1968 to replace the 1910 building. The location of the station was exactly the same as today's Mong Kok East Station.
The station was named Mong Kok Station
(same name with the current MTR Mong Kok Station) before the takeover of KCR
operations by the MTR Corporation
on 2 December 2007.
Although the station is in the same region and quite close to Mong Kok Station
, the fare are quite different each other. An extra fare of $0.8 minimum is charged on passengers using Mong Kok Station
instead, from stations of East Rail Line
north of Kowloon Tong
, and for the reverse direction, about $3 will be charged for passengers coming from Tung Chung
or Disneyland Resort
Platform 1 is very narrow and it is the terminus platform for some southbound trains during peak hours. The platforms are curved and the platform gap is relatively large compared to other MTR stations.
