New subway contract for Honk Kong Metro
The contract between Metro Hong Kong and MTR Corporation (MTR) for distribution of Metro in the public transportation system in Hong Kong has been renewed. The new agreement will be effective from 1 October 2010 and is valid for a period of three years under similar terms as previously.
The new contract continues to provide Metro Hong Kong the exclusive right to distribute along five MTR lines and at selected stations along the East Rail Line and the Man On Shan Line, a total of 63 stations across the MTR network.
The partnership between Metro and MTR dates back to 2002, when Metro was launched as the first free daily newspaper in Hong Kong. (Metro Press release)
