Ride Bangkok's MRT subway for free next Monday

Ride Bangkok's MRT subway for free next Monday

Adults can ride Bangkok’s MRT train system for free next Monday when Thais celebrate National Father's Day.

MRT fares will be waived all day on December 5, which marks the birthday anniversary of the late King Bhumibol Adulyadej the Great (Rama IX).

The free subway rides are aimed at boosting family ties and lowering energy use by encouraging people to travel by public transport, said the MRT’s operator.

The free tickets will be available at MRT Blue and Purple line ticket booths from 6am to midnight. Children must pay the usual fare, though.
