The ongoing social unrest on Monday led the MTR to close many of its station early, to prevent vandalism and to ensure the safety of passengers and staff.

On the Kwun Tong Line, services between Whampoa and Ho Man Tin have been suspended. Trains between Ho Man Tin and Yau Tong are travelling at two-and-a-half-minute intervals but will not stop at Yau Ma Tei, Mong Kok, Wong Tai Sin and Kwun Tong. The service between Yau Tong and Tiu Keng Leng has also been suspended.

On the Tsuen Wan Line, Yau Ma Tei, Mong Kok, Kwai Fong and Kwai Hing are closed, with many of the evening's protests centred around the Mong Kok area.

Tseung Kwan O, Tiu Keng Leng and Hang Hau stations are closed on the Tseung Kwan O Line, and Tung Chung is closed on the Tung Chung Line.

On the Island Line, Sai Wan Ho, the scene of a shooting earlier in the day, is closed and at 9 pm Causeway Bay, another protest site, shut its doors.

On the East Rail Line, services are not stopping at Sha Tin, and between University and Lo Wu/Lok Ma Chau. On the West Rail, Tsuen Wan West, Long Ping and Siu Hong are closed.

Ma On Shan, Heng On and Sha Tin Wai are closed on the Ma On Shan Line.

All trains services will end at 11.30 pm, apart from the Airport Express.

The Airport Express is only running between Hong Kong and Airport stations at 10 minute intervals.
