SRT maintains red signal for suspended train services


The State Railway of Thailand (SRT) has extended the suspension of 121 long and short train services until the Covid-19 situation is resolved, SRT Governor Nirut Maneephan said on Monday.

He said the decision was in line with the Centre for Covid-19 Situation Administration's move to ask people to avoid or delay their travel plans and extend the state of emergency for another two months from June 1 to July 31 in a bid to contain the virus.

"However, 115 long and short train services are still available to meet people's demand for travel," he said.

"To gain confidence among passengers throughout the journey, SRT has implemented measures to contain the spread of Covid-19 as well."

He added that people who had already bought tickets for the suspended train services can request a full refund at train stations nationwide.
