Mangmoon common ticket card is in testing phase. 200,000 people can register and test the card during the testing period. Priority is given to those, who use mass transit every day.

At the end of the year. Mangmoom card can be used in all Bangkok's mass transit e.g. BTS, MRT, ARL and BRT. For next year the card can be used for buses, ferries, motorways, expressways and convenience stores. In the future, the card can also be used for all new double tracking railway lines and high speed rail lines.

The first two are free payed by Thai people tax money. Some of them will be replaced when the new 489 NGV buses arrive in November.
In the meantime, they will gradually get an overhaul, which would take a year to renovate all the old buses.

These are the first lot of the renovated buses.



Quote:
BMTA is repairing the current fleet of 671 old buses in the first phase and 500 more in the second phase. The repair of each old bus will take about 40 days but after that it can be used for up to 15 years.

Old buses will be fitted with GPS, CCTV & Station Announcements

The first bus has already been repaired and will be equipped with four security cameras, an audio bus station announcement system and a Global Positioning System (GPS).

In the first phase it is expected to take a year to fix all the old buses.

The BMTA will avoid any interruption to bus services during the repairs.

The BMTA also plans to install smart bus stops that can automatically announce bus routes and arriving buses.

What does it mean to renovate a bus (motorcoach)? I don't understand.

Does it still have the old engine, drivetrain, old brakes, etc?

It's more like an overhaul. New engine, new brakes, new lightning, new seats, new aircon, new interior and exterior. They will also be fitted with GPS, CCTV and Station Announcements.

Something like "Pimp My Ride".
