More than 20,000 people on average took free rides every day to five stations of the extended route of the Blue Line subway during the free trial run from Monday to Friday, a senior Mass Rapid Transit Authority (MRTA) official said.

Deputy MRTA governor Witthaya Phanmongkol said the transport agency allowed people to take the trains for free to five stations on the extended route -- Wat Mungkorn, Sam Yod, Sanam Chai, Issaraparp and Tha Phra.

The free rides were allowed from 10am to 4pm.

Witthaya said about 40,000 passengers travelled for free to the five stations on Monday, which was a public holiday. The numbers, however, dropped to 20,000 per day during the four remaining working days.
