I don't know much about how it will turn out, but you can ask in the thai forum.
There are many rail enthusiasm there and not many visit this thread.

MRT expects rebound with a retail focus Plan is to make better use of station space

Published: 23/12/2011 at 12:00 AM

SET-listed Bangkok Metro Plc (BMCL) aims for ridership of the capital's MRT subway system to rise 15% next year after passenger traffic fell significantly short of target in the past two months because of flooding.

Managing director Chaiwat Utaiwan, who took the helm at BMCL in mid-October, said revenue was 20% and 25% lower than originally projected for October and November.

Four out of 18 metro stations were affected when the floods hit the capital.

Currently, 240,000 to 250,000 passengers travel by MRT each day.

Thanks to the opening of Central Rama 9 department store, passenger traffic rebounded sharply this month.

"Revenue grew well in the first three quarters. Despite the decline in the past two months, targeted revenue will be met," said Mr Chaiwat, a former banker.

"We project ridership increasing 10-15% in 2012 from the average of 250,000 trips this year."

In the first three years of his term, Mr Chaiwat set a goal for revenue generated by underground retail space to account for 20% of the total, with the rest coming from passenger fares.

"We need to undertake structural changes to have MRT ingrained in the Bangkokian's DNA," he said.

"Just like the fact that we cannot choose the way we are born, MRT initially didn't have a choice in that there was no concept to integrate commuting with underground malls or amenities to lure off-peak riders.

"But now we have a concept after having conducted studies on commuter attitudes and the possible options for available space."

Still awaiting approval from the board of directors, the concept includes new development of underground malls, spas and even educational hubs in seven metro stations.

Of the existing 18 stations, 11 have space available for commercial use. Four have already been fully integrated with retail shops.

Shares of BMCL closed yesterday on the Stock Exchange of Thailand at 57 satang, down 1 satang, in trade worth 479,000 baht.

More trains for Airport Link, new route planned

Published: 14/02/2012 at 03:27 AM

The Transport Ministry will buy more trains for the Airport Rail Link and build a new line from Suvarnabhumi airport to Pattaya.

Pakorn Tangjetsakao, acting president of SRT Electric Train Co under the jurisdiction of the ministry, said the company needs five more trains worth 3 billion baht to add to the eight trains it has currently.

The new trains will allow existing ones to go in for maintenance and cut passenger waiting times from 12-20 minutes to 7-10 minutes.

Deputy Transport Minister Chatt Kuldiloke said at least two trains worth about 1.2 billion baht would be ordered this year.

The ministry will also deploy vans and small buses to transport travellers to and from several locations around Bangkok to the Airport Rail Link at its Makkasan terminal in coming months.

Soythip Traisuthi, chairwoman of the State Railway of Thailand, said the state enterprise would spend 255 million baht hiring a consultant to study a new route for the Airport Rail Link, from the airport to Chon Buri and Pattaya. She expected the study to be concluded in 12 months.

"Rabbit"? Because it was internally introduced in the year of the rabbit? Will that be changed to "dragon" when it actually is introduced (or even "snake"...)? I kind of like the name though.

I was visiting Bangkok a month ago or so, and the system wasn't introduced by then, I don't know if it is now.

BTS revenue jumps on higher ridership, routes extension

THE NATION March 2, 2012 1:00 am

BTS Group Holding expects its revenue to surge 17 per cent in the fiscal year ending this month thanks to rising ridership on the Skytrain and extensions to its lines.

Chairman Keeree Kanjanapas said yesterday that despite the massive flood from October-December last year, passenger traffic continued to increase because of the lengthening of the Sukhumvit Line to Bearing and the opening of shopping malls and condominiums along the routes.

The Skytrain, which is run by BTS subsidiary Bangkok Mass Transit System, plans to add two stations this year - Bang Chan and Bang Wa - to its Silom Line, which currently terminates at Wongwian Yai. The company has to seek the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration's approval before setting fares and operating the new services.

Congestion during rush hour was difficult to handle but in August, 35 more carriages will be delivered and four more will be ordered this year. The new carriages will serve the rising demand from commuters and the longer lines. By the end of 2012, the system should carry more than 600,000 riders a day, up from 570,000 now.

The Skytrain will remain the core business of the group, Keeree said. It contributes 60-70 per cent of revenue, followed by 20 per cent from VGI Global Media, an out-of-home media agency, and the rest from property development and hotel management.

Bangkok is testing a common ticketing system. The testing will begin in May. It will take about 4 months and it will be usable in September-October this year. The card is called Rabbit Card and the points you collect will be called carrot rewards.
