Minibuses are not going to help, more cars are not going to help. Another station might but I as I said, the trains are near capacity already.

    Your idea of infrastructure capacity does not match mine- not least in terms of quality of life. The Tolo highway used to have views across to Ma On Shan and Tai Mei Tuk, it is gradually becoming a corridor with buildings on either side.

    From a recent study

    For major corridors between Tsuen Wan/Sha Tin and the northern NT, the counter-peak direction traffic (i.e. northbound direction to the northern NT) is only about 60% of that of the critical metro-bound traffic during the
    morning peak period4 . Taking Tolo Highway and Tuen Mun Road, the skeletons of the road network in the NT,
    for instance, while the critical metro-bound carriageways are operating with volume to capacity ratios
    5 in the range of 0.9-1.0, traffic at the counter-peak direction is observed to be utilising about 50-60% of their capacities

    A volume to capacity (v/c) ratio is an indicator which reflects the traffic situation of a road during peak hours. A v/c ratio below 1.0 is considered acceptable. A v/c ratio above 1.0 indicates the onset of mild congestion and a v/c ratio between 1.0 and 1.2 indicates a manageable degree of congestion. A v/c ratio above 1.2 indicates the onset of more serious congestion.


    From personal experience it's a bit busy 8:20-8:40AM
