So after having read this thread, I came to the conclusion that to go to Sukhumvit Soi 11, a taxi would be a better and faster choice. At least I have a Free trip to/from the Airport that I'll use on my return. Though at 7 - 8 PM there might be traffic on the road.

I think that depends on time of your travel. I don't think it's a good idea to travel to Sukhumvit area during rush hour. You could amazingly stuck for an hour at 200 meters at the expressway exit.

On the other hand, travel by ARL + BTS or MRT is much more faster and convenient (eventhough it could be pretty overcrowded during peak time).

Lower fares on way for Airport Link

Published: 15/09/2011 at 12:00 AM

The Transport Ministry will encourage commuters to use the loss-making Airport Rail Link between Suvarnabhumi airport and inner Bangkok by deploying more taxis at its inner Bangkok terminal.


It will also increase the frequency of commuter trains on the link, and cut fares.

Wan Yubamrung, secretary to Deputy Transport Minister Kittisakdi Hathasongkorh, said an insufficient number of taxis at the Makkasan terminal during rush hours was limiting the popularity of the Airport Rail Link.

The limited taxi services were the result of some influential parties demanding money from taxi drivers who wanted to pick up passengers at the Makkasan terminal.

Mr Wan, who has been appointed Airport Link Ambassador and assigned by Mr Kittisakdi to promote the Airport Rail Link, vowed to end the illicit business at the Makkasan terminal in a week.

Mr Wan said he would request 20 Bangkok taxi cooperatives to send their drivers to the Makkasan terminal during peak hours.

Mr Wan also promised to improve road access to the Makkasan terminal. He said a traffic island installed by the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration was blocking access from Ratchadaphisek Road. Railway authorities will ask City Hall to remove it.

Small shuttle bus services would be provided to carry commuters between the Makkasan terminal and the subway station on nearby Phetchaburi Road, pending construction of an elevated walkway between both stations.

A source said the Transport Ministry may shorten commuter train wait time on the Airport Rail Link from 15 to 10 minutes, and cut fares from 15-45 baht to a 20-baht flat rate to make the service more attractive.

20 Baht from Airport to Bangkok? That sounds good!

Travelling public transport with luggages is not a good idea, having to carry the luggage from the station to the hotel isn't good either. In Dubai I have a metro station just 300 - 400 meters from my home, and I'm still not convinced to take the metro to and from the airport.

I don't think increasing the frequency to 10 minutes from 15, is a good idea. It will just skyrocket their expences while not imcreasing the ridership at all. They just have to solve those other problems.

As I see it, the City Terminal location is their biggest problem.
