Cameras top list in fight against MTR sex pests
The Standard
Friday, November 25, 2011

A women's rights group has urged MTR Corp to install CCTV cameras on its trains and to increase patrols to protect travelers from indecent assaults and sexual harassment.

The call is in response to a survey of the Association Concerning Sexual Violence Against Women, which asked 2,168 respondents over the past two months on how indecent assaults may be prevented in stations and train compartments.

The installation of more CCTVs in compartments topped the list with 329 votes.

It was followed by a call to make the prevention of sexual assault part of MTR corporate social responsibility, with 252 votes.

Other measures that were strongly supported include increasing staff patrols, more plainclothes police on trains and greater frequency of services so as to prevent the overcrowding of compartments.

Linda Wong Sau-yung, executive director of the rights group, said a monitoring system has only been installed on the West Rail, Ma On Shan and Disneyland lines.

There are no CCTVs on the Tsuen Wan and Kwun Tong lines.

"About four million passengers use the MTR every day. The company has a responsibility to protect women from being assaulted or have pictures taken from under their skirts," Wong said.

According to police, there were 105 reports of indecent assault and 55 of under-the-skirt photos taken on the MTR in the first eight months of the year.

In 2010, there were 151 cases of indecent assault and 94 of indecent photo- taking.

Wong said such reports represent only a fraction of cases because most victims are too embarrassed or afraid to tell the police.

"These complaints are only the tip of the iceberg. Many victims may not not know how to react."

She said it is important for passengers to go to the aid of victims if they witness any incidents.

Member Tan Kong-sau cited a case in which a 30-year-old woman screamed for help after being assaulted, but was ignored by other passengers.

Tan said this happened six months ago when the victim was traveling from Prince Edward to Kwai Fong.

"Since no one offered to help her she felt disgusted and left the train at Kwai Fong station."

An MTR spokesman said it has taken measures to address the problem, such as strengthening patrols at crime blackspots. The MTR also displays posters, saying "Don't be a Silent Victim, Report Indecent Assault," to encourage victims and witnesses to report to the authorities.

Well I don't think labeling it because of "Mainland" construction is fair. Obviously a problem that can be avoided.

Anyway, new train introductions on the MTR seem to always have some platform problems. Remember the introduction of the ROTEM trains on the Tung Chung line? That required some reconstruction work on all platforms!

One thing I'm surprised is that the trains seem pretty loud (in the videos) when they accelerate. Anyone been on them to tell?

When the trains were in testing, they overshot one of the station in which the computer failed to recognize the signal.

Glad they haven't cluttered the station announcement with simplified Chinese. Don't like the acceleration noise though, seems less smooth than the old M-trains.

Rail chief awaits next stop
The Standard
Tuesday, December 13, 2011

Prominent members of the community attended a farewell party for MTR Corp chief executive Chow Chung-kong, who is retiring by the end of the month.

Chow took the stage to introduce his successor, Jay Herbert Walder, before going down memory lane on his days with the corporation.

During his tenure - he was appointed CEO in December 2003 - he spearheaded many projects, including the extension of the Island Line.

But the most important must be completing the merger of the two railway operators, a formidable mission involving multiple parties with diverse interests.

The road to the merger was a battle of wits and skills that saw the government defending public revenues, politicians fighting for the traveling public, and MTRC management speaking up for its interests.

As a business, a railway isn't at all easy to run as it takes a long time to get return on investment, and fares affect the public directly.

One of the trickiest issues in the merger was how the MTRC could absorb the humungous asset base of the Kowloon-Canton Railway Corp. In the end, ownership vested with the government, and the MTRC pays a leasing fee.

Even so, the issues of leasing cost and splitting returns still led to protracted negotiations between the MTRC and the government.

The two sides entered into a tug-of-war just over the fine detail of whether earnings before interest, tax and amortization should be used as the basis for calculation.

An official at the negotiating table said Chow drove a hard bargain.

The merger was a mammoth endeavor - whether you look at it from the political, financial, people management, or public issue angle.

But its successful completion has greatly enhanced the cost-effectiveness of our rail transport system.

Recalling tough dealings with the MTRC, the official said with a smile: "Luckily, the government was the majority shareholder, with a 75 percent stake in the company."

Some suggest Chow, 61, is well qualified to be Hong Kong's next financial secretary, but given the current political climate, it would be advisable for him to think carefully if he receives such an offer.

It seems the Hong Kong Jockey Club is the fastest mover in getting Chow, as it has invited him to join its board, even before he completes his term at the MTRC.

And someone who had previous dealings with Chow said if he ever indicates an intention to start a new chapter in his career, companies will queue up to make him an offer. Siu Sai-wo is chief editor of Sing Tao Daily

New MTR boss refuses to be drawn on size of hikes
The Standard
Wednesday, January 04, 2012

The MTR Corp has yet to make a decision on the size of its planned fare increases, according to its new chief executive Jay Walder.

When asked what the railway operator has in mind, Walder replied yesterday: "We do not have a percentage yet for the increase. There is a fare adjustment mechanism under which the MTR operates. That mechanism is an open and transparent one."

It allows adjustments for inflation and increases in wages.

He said the MTR already has concessions for children, students and the elderly.

It will continue to look at promotions to increase passenger numbers, because this is something helpful to both the company and public.

Walder, 52, was former chairman and chief executive of the New York Metropolitan Transportation Authority before resigning in July. He has 30 years' experience in the railway business.

After becoming head of the MTA in 2009, he laid off 3,500 staff and reformed the company.

He managed to save US$520 million (HK$4.06 billion) in operating costs within two years.

However, Walder said the layoffs were down to the MTA not having enough money to operate, and denies he will do the same with the MTRC.

"The assets were not renewed and the infrastructures were in terrible condition," he said.

Walder, who became the head of the MTRC on Sunday with a term of 30 months, said he will focus on three things.

He said he will make sure the five new rail lines are constructed in a "seamless and effective" way.

The new routes include the West Island and South Island lines.

He will look at further expansion and also strengthen MTRC commitment to the community.

Walder said he arrived in Hong Kong in November to get familiar with the railway system.

He met operations staff, went to different stations and looked at MTRC property developments.

His annual salary is HK$7.2 million, which is about 1.6 times his MTA pay.

But this is still far short of the annual salary of HK$13.9 million of former MTRC head Chow Chung-kong.

"I am here to stay," Walder said.

Which are the other 3 lines? I think the MTR is also constructing the HK part of the HSR to Guangzhou, so if that is one, then that leaves two.

Are they talking about the East Rail line extension, etc?

My guesses :

- Shatin Central Link
- Kai Tak monorail
- Whampoa spur line

Airport line on track with more trains
The Standard
Friday, January 06, 2012

The frequency of Airport Express trains will be increased to 10-minute intervals - from the current 12 minutes - from January 15 to meet growing demand.

"We have seen a steady growth in demand for the Airport Express service, which provides fast and seamless connections to the airport and AsiaWorld- Expo," said MTR Corp operations head Ivan Lai Ching-kai.

The extra trains will boost capacity by 20 percent.

"The service enhancement is being introduced just ahead of the busy Lunar New Year period when Hong Kong people often take advantage of the long holiday to travel overseas," Lai said.

Airport Express capacity rose from nine million passengers in 2009 to 12 million last year.

Over the peak travel days of the Lunar New Year, January 20 to 22, the service will also start earlier with the first train departing Hong Kong Station at 5am, or 50 minutes earlier than normal.

The Tung Chung line, the Airport Express' sister commuter service, will also increase train frequency from the current 10 minutes to eight minutes on Saturdays from January 21 between noon and 10pm.

The enhancement is expected to boost the line's capacity by 25 percent.

Lai also addressed recent incidents on the Light Rail and West Rail, saying human factors were involved but denied that the drivers lacked appropriate rest. He said both the drivers involved are undergoing retraining.

On January 1, passengers on a Light Rail train were unable to get on or off at the Tuen Mun Hospital stop. Passengers had to get off at the next stop.

A week earlier, passengers also had problems getting on and off a train on the West Rail line. At 2am on December 25, a train stopped at Long Ping station, but while the train doors opened, the platform screen doors stayed shut.

The driver failed to notice this and was only alerted to the problem by station staff as he began pulling away. He then had to reverse the train to the correct position at the platform.

LCQ12: Installation of CCTV cameras in public transport vehicles
Wednesday, January 11, 2012
Government Press Release

Following is a question by the Hon Wong Sing-chi and a written reply by the Secretary for Transport and Housing, Ms Eva Cheng, at the Legislative Council meeting today (January 11):

Question:

It has been reported that the first mainland-assembled train of the MTR Corporation Limited (MTRCL) came into service at the end of 2011, which is equipped with a closed circuit television (CCTV) monitoring system with four cameras on each train car and a total of 32 cameras in the whole train. According to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (PCPD), it has not received any written enquiry about the use of CCTVs from MTRCL. In this connection, will the Government inform this Council if it knows:

(a) whether MTRCL has informed PCPD of and made enquiry about the CCTV monitoring system in its first mainland-assembled train or other trains in service in the past or at present; if it has, of the details; if not, the reasons for that; whether at present there is any procedure or guideline regulating the installation and use of CCTVs on public transport vehicles (e.g. whether the relevant government departments or PCPD must be notified);

(b) from 2007 onwards, the number of trains in service on each MTR rail line in each year and among them, the number and percentage of trains with CCTV monitoring system installed (list by year and rail line); whether MTRCL has any plan to install CCTV monitoring system on train cars which are not yet equipped with such system; if it has, the details; if not, the reasons for that;

(c) the selection mechanism adopted and the conditions taken into account by MTRCL in acquiring trains; if CCTV is a necessary condition;

(d) given that MTRCL has indicated that the CCTV monitoring system is mainly used for coping with emergency incidents, and the recorded images will be erased weekly according to the usual practice, while access to these images is restricted to certain categories of staff, yet according to PCPD, organisations which plan to use CCTVs should first consider other less privacy-intrusive alternatives, post clear notices near CCTV cameras to inform the public of the CCTV monitoring and the reasons for such monitoring, as well as erase the recorded images according to a schedule and ensure safe custody of the records, how MTRCL defines the use for coping with emergency incidents; what mechanism has been put in place by the Government and MTRCL to ensure that the CCTV monitoring systems will not be used beyond the original scope and extent, and to prevent any misuse or abuse of the CCTV monitoring systems; whether MTRCL has considered alternative means, and whether it has posted notices;

(e) as it has been reported that according to the results of an online survey conducted earlier by a concern group for sex crimes occurred on public transport vehicles to collect public views on MTRCL's measures against sexual violence, most respondents consider that MTRCL should step up monitoring measures such as installing CCTVs in train compartments, whether MTRCL will use the CCTV monitoring system to curb sex crimes; and

(f) whether CCTVs are installed in the train cars or compartments of various kinds of public transport vehicles in Hong Kong; if so, of the details, together with the respective numbers of compartments in various categories of public transport vehicles which are equipped with CCTVs and the percentages of such numbers in the total number of train cars or compartments of the respective categories; whether the operators of these public transport vehicles have enquired PCPD in respect of the installation of CCTVs; if they have, of the details; if not, the reasons for that; whether public transport operators which have not installed CCTVs on their vehicles have any plan to install such devices?

Reply:

President,

The replies to various parts of the question are as follows:

(a) According to the Constitutional and Mainland Affairs Bureau, the Personal Data (Privacy) Ordinance (PDPO) does not require public transport service providers which intend to install closed circuit television (CCTV) system in their facilities to submit their proposal to the Office of the Privacy Commissioner for Personal Data (PCPD) for consideration.

Where the use of a CCTV system involves compilation of personal data, the data user would be required to comply with requirements under the PDPO. In this connection, PCPD has issued "Guidance on CCTV in Surveillance Practices" to organisations of various sectors in July 2010, which provides practical guidance on matters such as proper consideration to be given in deciding whether or not to install CCTV system, how it may be installed to minimise intrusion into personal data privacy, and the proper handling of images recorded.

The main purpose for MTR Corporation Limited (MTRCL) to install CCTV system in MTR train compartments is to enable the train captain to immediately understand the situation in the train compartment through the CCTV system and provide prompt assistance, when passengers activate the in-train intercom where necessary. Notices have been put up in train compartments to inform passengers that the CCTV system has been installed on trains.

According to MTRCL, the relevant principles for compilation of personal data under the PDPO have been taken into consideration when installing CCTV in train compartments. At the same time, MTRCL has stringent regulatory procedures in place allowing only authorised persons to review CCTV recordings when necessary.

(b) The existing number of trains in service on each MTR line and the number of trains installed with CCTV system are set out in the Annex.

MTRCL does not have plan to install CCTV system in trains currently without CCTV.

(c) The new trains purchased by MTRCL have been designed according to international safety standards and MTRCL's usual stringent requirements for performance and safety. All of the trains' systems and their integrated operation are professionally designed to ensure compatibility with the fail-safe operation of the existing MTR system. The Corporation will also introduce appropriate facilities with the advancement of technology when purchasing new trains to enhance operational efficiency and service quality.

Currently, CCTV equipment is installed on all new trains purchased by MTRCL. As a matter of fact, other international railway operators also include CCTV as a standard technical specification when purchasing new trains for urban railway systems.

(d) and (e) Under emergency circumstances, train captains can immediately understand the situation inside train compartments to provide assistance should passengers activate the in-train intercom system.

If recording function is available in the CCTV system installed in train compartments, recordings are made in a continuous loop, with old images automatically being covered up by new recordings after a certain number of days, and old images are automatically removed.

At the same time, MTRCL has in place stringent regulatory procedures to ensure only authorised persons can review the CCTV images when necessary. Under special circumstances, such as cases involving crime or personal safety of passenger, MTRCL will provide video clips on request from the Police or other law enforcement agencies for investigation purposes. At present, notices are put up in train compartments to inform passengers that CCTV system has been installed.

(f) At present, there are around 5,800 franchised buses in Hong Kong, of which around 1,580 buses (i.e. about 27%) have been installed with CCTVs in their compartments to facilitate bus captains to monitor the safety and alighting of passengers. As long as the CCTVs installed will not affect the structure or safety of the franchised buses, franchised bus companies may install such devices without the need to make prior application to the Transport Department (TD). TD will inspect the CCTV installation during the routine vehicle examination, so as to ensure that the installation will not affect driving safety.

As for taxis, the taxi trade may, subject to their own operating conditions, decide whether to install CCTV system inside the taxi compartments without making prior application to TD. According to TD, the trade's installation of CCTVs in taxi compartments is not common. However, the taxi trade has to ensure that such installation will not obstruct or easily cause injuries to both drivers and passengers. TD will inspect the CCTV installation during the routine vehicle examination, so as to ensure that the installation will not affect driving safety.

Besides, all of the existing 163 trams are installed with CCTV system in the tram compartments to facilitate motormen to monitor passengers' boarding at the rear gate. The public light bus (PLB) trade in general has not installed CCTV system in PLBs and does not have any plan at present to install such devices.

TD has reminded public transport trades to observe the relevant requirements under the privacy legislation and make reference to the guidelines provided by PCPD in their daily use of CCTV systems.
