Commuters using the two BTS sky train Green Line extensions are being charged 15 baht per trip on each extension from today, after two years of free rides.

The extensions run from Baring to Kheha in Samut Prakan and from Mor Chit, through Saphan Mai, to Khu Khot in Pathum Thani.

Commuters who want to travel beyond the two extensions will not pay the entry fee for the use of the main line from Baring to Mor Chit.

Meanwhile, commuters using the Pink Line monorail train will continue to enjoy free rides until January 6th, after which they will have to pay 13-38 baht while maintenance of the conductor rail is being completed.

Once work is complete and all 30 stations are operational, the fares will rise to 15-45 baht.

About five kilometres of the conductor rail detached from the supporting beam and fell onto the Tiwanon Road in Nonthaburi on December 24th, resulting in the suspension of the train service for a day. Service resumed, but only from the Chaeng Wattana to Min Buri. The service between the Nonthaburi Civic Centre to the Pak Kret bypass station remains suspended pending completion of the repair work.
