Not a big deal anyway, I always stand on the MTR, the best (funnest) place to stand is in between two cars, where the joints move around. Otherwise I like leaning against the glass by the side of the seats.

Anyone know whether MTR has or has any realistic plans of bringing wifi to the stations/trains?

They should have put in the glass partition between the "multi-user area" and the seats like they usually do near the doorways.
