Is there any news about the trial running of Purple line ? It was said that it would be free for people to ride the line from Mar.

Still on test run by BEM though - while the connection between Blue ring and Purple line has to wait until the next 15 month after opening the purple line on 12 August 2016 due to political football between MRTA vs NESDB.

MRTA insists that better let BEM who also runs Blue line to make 1 km extension to connect with Purple line without bidding while NESDB insists that the bidding for concession on that 1 km extension must be called.

The soft opening with free rides will be in May. From inside information, the extension to connect the Purple and Blue lines is already under construction by Ch Karnchang without contract, as they realize that the connection is essential. CH Karnchang hope that they will get compensated once the political football is over. CH Karnchang are the major shareholder in BEM, the operator of the Blue Line. They have also been given a 2 year operation for the Purple Line. The political reasons for preventing the connection at Bang Sue is due to the usual suspects seeking an incentive, by calling for a separate operator for each line. They even hope to call for a separate operator for the Blue Line extension. Fortunately they did not succeed in their proposal for a separate operator for the Green line extension from Morchit.

What happened to this thread? It went from page 69 to 75 in one day. I'm guessing a thread got merged into this one?
