MRTA to cut Purple Line train fares to boost passengers
in Business | August 24, 2016 10:06 pm

Starting September 1, train fares for the newly-launched Purple Line will be halved from two to one baht per kilometer distance which will make the fare for the entire route from Taopoon and Bangyai or vice versa only 29 baht instead of 42 baht as it is the case now.

On top of that, the train fare of the Blue Line between Hua Lampong and Bangsue will be reduced from 70 baht to 57 baht for the entire route.


However, the discount prices are for passengers who use the smart cards which are available at all train stations. Passengers who buy train tickets for single trips will still pay the same fares.

The discount train prices were agreed at the board meeting of the Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand and the Bangkok Expressway and Metro Public Company to encourage more people to use the Purple Line after its launch two weeks ago which saw an average of about 20,000 passengers using the service each day against the projection of 70,000 passengers/day.

The starting fare of the Purple Line remains unchanged at 14 baht for the first kilometre but the fare for the rest of the route which has 16 stations is one baht per kilometer instead of two. The new fare for the entire route covering 16 stations is 29 baht instead of 42 baht.

MRTA board chairman General Yodyuth Bunyathikarn said the board of MRTA and BEM also agreed to adjust down the parking fee for cars which park at the MRTA’s parking lots.

The new parking fee for two-hour parking is set at five baht instead of 10 baht and the monthly parking fee is halved from 1,000 baht to 500 baht.

General Yodyuth said that the discount fares are effective during the period when the connection between Bangsue station of the Blue Line and the Taopoon station of the Purple Line is yet to be fixed which is expected to take about five months.


Currently, a free bus service to link between the two points is provided to passengers who want to connect from one route to another.

The general hopes that the discount fares will boost the number of passengers using the Purple Line by about 30 percent.

Are the translations accurate? Some of them seem off to me. I know Silom as 席隆, for example.

In deed - even the railway station names in Thailand used to have Chinese characters until the replacement of black and white station sign board to white concrete sign after the WWII.

The rails are steel so they rust which protects the steel. Once the trains are in operation during trial runs the top of the rails will become shiny.

Very similar deadlines for the Brazilian systems under construction! But in Christian years

New Yorkers praising BTS Skytrain
http://www.businessinsider.com/the-b...to-new-york-14




the first day of Phadung Krungkasem boat service from Hua Lamphong to Thewet using 4 boats with capacity of 12 passengers per boat is a real success. It has carried 400 passengers to go between Hua Lamphong and Thewet in full load - and the most used pier is Hua Lamphong, Thewet, and Rajdamnoen Nok (Phadung Krungkasem floating market).

BMA will have to make a correction on some traffic issues including Mahanak intersection with Saen Saeb boat service before fully operated in March 2017 with the new pier at Wat Thewarat Kunchorn near Thewet pier of Chao Phraya express boat (opened in mid September 2016) along with 6 new boats with capacity of 20 passengers per boat to meet the popular demands - However, it would be a lot better to have Mahanak pier to connect with Saensaeb Boat to boost even more passengers

It is also confirmed that the Gold line will be driverless, run by a fully automated computer system, the first in Bangkok.

--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Cabinet approves Gold Line monorail
The Nation September 7, 2016 1:00 am



THE Bt3.8-billion Gold Line monorail project for western Bangkok along the Chao Phraya River was given the green light by the Cabinet yesterday, with the line expected to be in service in 2018.

The elevated monorail line is 2.7 kilometres long, stretching from the BTS Green Line's Krung Thonburi station and running through four stations to Prachathipok via Klong San.

The line will connect to the Purple Line's extended route to Bangkok's southern zone (Tao Poon-Ratchaburana) in the area adjacent to Wat Anong Kham Ram.

The Cabinet also instructed Krungthep Thanakom Co, a majority-owned enterprise of the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA), to study in more detail the possible impacts of the rail line. The concern is that it could hide the scenery of Rattanakosin Island in 25km radius in accordance to a restriction of the Cabinet's resolution in 1994, said Deputy Prime Minister General Prawit Wongsuwan, who chaired yesterday's Cabinet meeting.

Prawit, who is also defence minister, said the Cabinet did not set a deadline for the study. Once it is completed, the company can submit its finding to the Cabinet for further consideration.

Apart from easing traffic in Thon Buri, the Gold Line is likely to benefit many buildings and shopping complexes located nearby. One of them is the IconSiam riverside shopping mall and condominium project of Siam Piwat, Magnolia Quality Development and Charoen Pokphand, which previously expressed interest in partial development of the Gold Line. IconSiam, on Charoen Nakhon Road, is set to open next year.

The Gold Line project, which will be under development by the BMA, is expected to produce an internal rate of return of 28.5 per cent, according to a study by the Office of Transport and Traffic Policy and Planning.

Moreover, the line is expected to save travelling time and fuel costs equivalent to Bt830 million a year after 2018 and Bt2.42 billion a year after 2038. The forecast is based on 47,000 riders per day in the first phase after 2018 and 81,000 riders per day in the next phase after 2023.

If it goes ahead as planned, the first 1.8km phase of the project will cost Bt2.51 billion and be completed in 2018. The second phase of 0.9km worth Bt1.33 billion will be completed in 2023 and will connect with the Purple Line extension.

The Gold Line monorail will use an automated guideway transit (AGT) system and each carriage can carry about 80 to 100 passengers, or 4,000 to 12,000 passengers per trip per hour.
