Mass Transit Railway (MTR) is the rapid transit railway system in Hong Kong. The system currently operated by MTR Corporation Limited includes 211.6 km of rail with 155 stations, becoming one of the busiest rail transit systems in the world with a daily passenger rides over 2.45 million. In 2006, MTR Corporation decided to upgrade its wireless communications system, replacing its present MPT 1327 system with a more advanced TETRA system to better serve its expanded businesses. And an open tender of Radio Systems Replacement was offered. Following a competitive tender process, MTR Corporation awarded this project to CLP Engineering, EADS and SEG Communications, a Hytera subsidiary for rail transit communications. For more than three years, engineering and configuration, the whole new system was operated in June 2010, greatly improving communications and dispatching efficiency.
