Any idea when the rolling stock/systems contract will be awarded for the Blue Line Extension? This decision seems to be eternally delayed.

Only when MRTA has awarded the contract to run the Blue Line Extension to a company, will the company in question (most likely BEM) purchase rolling stocks for the extension.

Pink line, Yellow line, Orange line (east) and Blue line extension will all be up for bidding this month.

BEM seems to prefer Siemens, yes?

It depends, I think. BEM got the right to run the Purple line, but the rolling stocks are ordered from J-Trec in Japan and they seems to like it. They said on the news that they might consider buying more trains from Japan in the future for other lines.

BMA will terminate Bangkok BRT, when the contract ends in April 2017 due to lower than expected ridership, 23,000 people a day vs the expected 30,000 a day and a loss of 1,000 million baht (28 million USD).

Instead a tram system is being considered to replace the BRT. The tram is under study for advantages and disadvantages, from the initial study, it will use battery and solar cells and can charge itself at the station. The Tram will connect with the BTS Silom line.

I've read in other news that a lot of people actually depend on BRT as a cheap alternative mode of transport. The ridership is not that far below projection, hope they will extend operations beyond April '17.

Assuming they will replace it with a tram system, it would mean they'll probably only able to start work after the BRT has stopped ? hope current users can find alternative solutions to travel.

Either the tram will replace it or the Grey line monorail phase II.

Big Too (PM Prayut) gone mad after learning that BMA refusing to run boat service along Phadung Krung Kasem as a regular basis
http://manager.co.th/Daily/ViewNews....=9590000059234
http://www.matichon.co.th/news/172014

Big Pok (Minister of Interior) got the order from Big Too to revive Phadung Krung Kasem boat service as a regular service after BMA is unwilling to do so despite of the fact that BMA has run the extension of Saensaeb boat service from Wat Sri Bunrueng to Minburi and from Wat Paknam Phaseecharoen to Phetkasem Soi 69
