BTS, BRT, Gold Line trains on track for normal services from Nov 1


BTS, BRT and Gold Line train services will resume normally from November 1, said Bangkok Mass Transit System director Surapong Laoha-Unya, adding that the resumption of normal services is in line with the government’s move to reopen the kingdom to foreign visitors from 46 "low-risk" countries.

He explained that the BTS, BRT and Gold Line will go back to normal operating hours from 6am to midnight, except for BTS Green Line stations in Samut Prakan and Pathum Thani, which will close at 11pm as these two provinces are not included in the government’s 17 tourism pilot areas.

He added that “park and ride” stations will also go back to normal opening times of 5am to 1am.

“The company is ready to provide transport services as our employees have been fully vaccinated and will take regular Covid-19 tests before performing their duties,” Surapong assured public commuters.

“In addition, the company will deploy 98 trains and undertake cleaning operations periodically in a bid to gain passenger confidence,” he added.
