I was late to some meeting as all the "Add Value Machine" machines for Octopus were under repair at the MTR station where I was hoping to charge it. Where can I find up-to-date, online information regarding which facilities are closed in the MTR stations in Hong Kong?

1I think it's optimistic to assume that this question has an answer, my experience was always that this type of information was notoriously hard to come by, and when you did it was often only provided in Cantonese, if you were lucky it also came in broken and barely understandable English. Just getting this type of information for entire MTR stations is hard enough, getting it for something specific as "the self-service kiosks in every station" I think is assuming too much from the MTR Corporation.– pzkpfwNov 2, 2019 at 12:03
4Side note - you can top up your octopus at any 7-elevens, which exist in most of the MTR stations.– B.LiuNov 2, 2019 at 15:47
