It would be interesting how Cross Rail in London is run by the MTR, assuming that it would be significantly more expensive to use than HK due to lack of subsidy from property, but will it be as expensive as the Tube?
You can say people in HK are spoiled by the general efficiency and safety of the MTR and I suppose there is some truth in that, but nevertheless they do have a good reason to have high expectation of the firm. Like I said, they rely on the subway to a larger degree than many other cities in the world. The MTR literally keeps the city going and is at the heart of the public transport system. So they need the MTR to be at it's best to maintain their daily lives. If the MTR starts to go down hill, then that can be a problem for many in HK. That is the main worry here.
