Yau Ma Tei Police Station was built in 1922. Additions were made after World War II, including a 1957 extension wing to serve as barracks and an accommodation block, to the west of the existing station.

The district has the third highest population density of all districts. The 2006 By-Census recorded the total population of Yau Tsim Mong District at 280,548. Formerly two districts, the Yau Tsim District and Mong Kok District, it was combined in 1994 as an acronym of three of its major areas: Yau Ma Tei, Tsim Sha Tsui, and Mong Kok. Tsuen Wan Line and Kwun Tong Line converge from the north at Prince Edward Station, then Mong Kok and Yau Ma Tei where Kwun Tong Line terminates. Tsuen Wan Line continued to Jordan and Tsim Sha Tsui stations before crossing the harbour to Hong Kong Island.
Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Jordan Road is a road in Yau Ma Tei, Kowloon, Hong Kong. It spans from the West Kowloon Highway in West Kowloon, through Ferry Point to Gascoigne Road, and is a major east-west road in southern Kowloon. At the end of the road, there was the Jordan Road Ferry Pier in Ferry Point, with ferries carrying passengers and vehicles to Central of Hong Kong Island. Until the completion of the Cross-Harbour Tunnel, it was a major transport hub to and from the Hong Kong Island. There was also an important bus terminus, Jordan Road Ferry Pier Bus Terminus, near the pier. The bus terminus hosted many routes to the New Territories. After the completion of major part of reclamation in the West Kowloon, the bus terminus was moved to Jordan (Wui Cheung Road) Bus Terminus in the new reclamation nearby, near the Kowloon Station of the Mass Transit Railway (MTR) and the Airport Express. These factors make Jordan Road an important transportation access point.

It is the western terminus of the Kwun Tong Line, and is also located on the Tsuen Wan Line. Yau Ma Tei is an interchange station, yet it is used less frequently for this purpose than nearby Mong Kok station since the platforms are not designed for cross-platform interchange. The Kwun Tong Line platforms are thus beneficial mostly to local travellers. This station is used by many students during commuting hours, since it is in the vicinity of many large schools. The station's livery colour is grey, with red, white, and blue stripes representing the colors on French national flag. The stripes, however, are being removed as part of current renovation works as of October 2005. Helvetica, the original typeface used in station name signs, is also being replaced by Myriad under the scheme.
