BTS has joined hands with Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) in implementing a slew of measures to contain the threat of Covid-19.

BTS has reorganised the stations during rush hours to ensure social distancing and rescheduled trains, as each train can now take only a quarter of the normal passenger numbers.
Surapong Laoha-Unya, chief executive officer of BTS Group, said that BTS Skytrain continued to be strict in enforcing public health measures. It has also increased the frequency of sanitisation inside the trains and the stations to prevent the spread of Covid-19.
BMA officials will help ensure that passengers at 17 main stations keep a safe distance during rush hours.
The new measures may result in many passengers missing their normal trains so BTS has requested the passengers to arrive earlier than usual.
In addition, to comply with the social distancing measures, BTS has brought all its 98 trains with four bogies for full passenger service starting May 7.
