The collaboration is seeking to forge a mass transit connection from the campus to the Airport Rail Link’s Lat Krabang Station, explained BTS Group Holdings chief executive officer Kavin Kanjanapas. The campus is located just to the east of Suvarnabhumi Airport.
The partnership will also pave the way for knowledge exchange between BTS and the institute.
BTS Group Holdings executive director Surapong Laoha-Unya said two possible routes were being studied – Hua Takhe to Lat Krabang Station (4 kilometres) and a link directly from the campus to Lat Krabang Station.
Each tram-bus will have three carriages and capacity for 250 passengers. The study will take two to three years to complete.
