Full MRT Yellow Line service starts on Monday
The MRT Yellow Line will be fully operational spanning 23 stations from Lat Phrao to Samrong, starting from Monday (June 19).
This will be another important network for improving the connectivity of the mass transit rail system, as it connects to the existing mass transit rail network at the following four points:
1. Samrong Station, which allows transfers to the BTS Green Line at Samrong Station (Exits 2 and 3).
2. Hua Mark Station — to the Airport Rail Link at Hua Mark Station (Exit 2) and the Eastern Line at Hua Mark Station (Exit 3).
3. Lat Phrao Station — to the MRT (Blue Line) at Lat Phrao Station.
4. Lam Sali Junction Station — to the MRT Orange Line rail project, specifically the Thai Cultural Center - Min Buri section (Suvarnabhumi) that will be opened in the future.
During the trial opening of the MRT Yellow Line for the public, private sector concessionaire Eastern Bangkok Monorail Co Ltd said service is free daily from 6am to 9pm until July 2. The service hours will later expand to regular operating hours (6am to midnight). Fare collection will begin from July 3.
