Great to see MRT expanding. Good public transport is one thing that Bangkok was somewhat lacking for a long time. It seems to be changing now. I hope to try the new line out later this year.

From the reports by those who take the first ride, there are still lots of shortcomings which BEM and MRTA still need to address - esp the issue of ticket - since the exiting Blue line subway cards are not functioned in some stations - need to purchase the new one.

Here is my own account of Purple line on the Opening Day - 6 August 2016


New TVM that allow me to load cash to my store value card


Get ready to ride from Klong Bang Phai station


Inside Japanese EMUs for Purple line


Highlight of Purple line - Bridge across Chao Phraya - spotting Nonthaburi 1 Bridge and a barge along with the boats - wish Chao Phraya Express boat will run as a daily basis from Morning to evening to Pakkret to function as a feeder

After Junta issuing the decree that those vans would no longer be able to park at Victory Monument but they have to park at 3 bus terminals at Taling Chan, Ekkamai and Mochit 2, there will be free feeder vans to enable the passenger to reach Victory monument - effective on 25 October 2016

Official Map is here - with the exception that the connection between Blue ring and Purple line from Bangsue to Tao Poon has not finished yet - hope to be done by the end of March 2017 though



So far, those drivers need to take 6 months to train how to press the brake system at the right moment and right distance to cut down the delay due to the correcting the position with plantform screen doors

a few people told me that the ticketing counters of MRT (blue line stations) was changing the subways cards for free (this was news back in Feb) as they told them the new tickets can be used with both lines.

Not sure if the free exchange has ended.

For your information, on Tuesday I went to the ticket counter at MRT Blue Line to ask for the updating of my old card in order to be able to take a ride on the Purple Line and the officer has changed the new one for me free of charge.
