For years the Southern District of Hong Kong has not had any connection to the rest of the territory by MTR. That all changes starting December 28, 2016 with the opening of the South Island Line.
The line is colored green on the map, and connects South Horizons and Lei Tung on the island of Ap Lei Chau, via Wong Chuk Hang and Ocean Park with Admiralty, where passengers can transfer to the Tsuen Wan Line or Island Line.
The entire line uses driverless operation, and should significantly cut travel times from the south of Hong Kong Island.
We’ve updated our online map, Android app and iOS app with the new line!
We recently upgraded all of our metro map app websites to use HTTPS. You’ll notice if you visit any of our sites like Explore Shanghai, Explore Singapore or Explore Bangkok, that the address bar starts with https:// instead of http://, and there should be a small green padlock icon.
One extra letter may not mean much, but HTTPS ensures that your information is safe and secure when using the internet. It also means no-one can impersonate another site.
We used the free Let’s Encrypt service to get our sites secure online. Only about 45% of page loads on the web are currently using HTTPS. Hopefully, by moving ExploreMetro to HTTPS, we’re helping get to 100% one little step at a time.
