Mr. Surapong Laohasanaya, managing director of BTS plc. told the press that the company is currently conducting a study to change its magnetic ticket system to a chip card system which will be integrated with Pink and Yellow monorail lines in the future. Also, it is studying to introduce new method to buy tickets at station counters as well. The company expect to launch it by December this year. In the mean time, BTS is in the process of receiving new rolling stocks for Green Line extensions, 22 from Siemens and 24 from CHRC (184 cars in total). These new trains will be used for track testing and trial run in south extension (Samrong - Samut Prakarn), beginning from next month onwards. If the tests were successful, BTS will continue the delivering process from Siemens and CHRC until it is complete by 2019. By that time, BTS expected to operate the system with 98 four-car trains (392 cars) in its fleet.

interstingly, the news also mentioned that BTS already received 2 new trains, though not specify from which party, as disclosed by Mr. Laohasanaya. This is very skeptical because if those trains were really arrived, there should have been at least photos of docking at sea port released on the internet by now.

However, BTS already began track testing on south extension since June 12:

BTS received new Inspiro trains at Bozankaya plant yesterday:
Quote:
First Inspiro for Bangkok unveiled

David Burroughs | International Railway Journal | June 19, 2018

Siemens unveiled the first Inspiro metro train for Bangkok at its consortium partner Bozankaya’s factory in Ankara on June 19, the first of 22 new four-car sets for the Thai capital’s Green Line extension.

Bangkok Mass Transit System (BTS) awarded contracts in May 2016 worth a total of Baht 10.9bn ($US 305m) for two fleets of metro trains. Siemens is supplying 22 Inspiro sets while CRRC Changchun Railway Vehicles, China, is building 24 four-car trains. The 140 tonne metro train, which started productions in April 2017, will begin its journey from Ankara to the Turkish port of Borusan-Gemlik at the end of June, with the 15,000km journey to Bangkok taking about six weeks.

Arrival at the Thai port of Laem Chabang is scheduled for August 2018, and will be followed by static and dynamic commissioning including test runs on the Green Line tracks in Bangkok. The trains will operate on the existing BTS (Skytrain) system and its extensions, and will help boost the capacity of the lines to more than a million passengers a day.

Mangmoom Card is here! but minus a few legs:

On June 22, Ministry of Transports officially launched Mangmoom Card (Spider card) for public uses. However, the card will initially usable only with MRT Blue Line and Purple Line whereas Airport Rail Link and BMTA buses will join the system by October. It is still not clear whether this card would eventually compatible with BTS trains or not since the said party already established its own Rabbit Card system years ago. BTS is reluctant to join because Rabbit Card is quite well-established while MRTA have yet to reach a deal with them.

Bangkok launches Common Ticketing System for mass transit commuters

Xinhua | 2018-06-22 21:05:34

A Common Ticketing System was launched Friday for Bangkok's mass transit commuters, after the initiative was firstly put forward some three years ago.

Transport Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith presided over the launch ceremony for the Common Ticketing System in which Mangmoom (spider) Card is provided for the conveniences of Bangkok commuters who can use it with Purple Line and Blue Line of Bangkok's metro from Saturday. From October, Mangmoom Card can be used with buses of the Bangkok Mass Transit Authority and rail services of the Airport Rail Link, according to the transport minister.

As for the two elevated train lines running in the center of Bangkok, or the green lines, operated by BTS Group, the ministry so far has not reached a deal with the company on the introduction of the Mangmoom card into the BTS system. Pairin Chuchotethavorn, deputy minister of transport, called on Thais to use the Mangmoom card and then urge BTS Group to join the government's common ticket system.

Arkhom said the card can be used in all future mass transit lines of Bangkok and may extend to public transportation, stores, shopping malls around the country. He also mentioned that a version 2 of the common ticket system may allow commuters to use their credit card or debit card for the country's mass transportation service. There are three categories, including Blue Mangmoom Card for general people, Golden Mangmoom Card for elderly persons and Silver Mangmoom Card for students. Both Thais and foreigners can get a card with 150 baht (4.5 U.S. dollars), 50 as deposit and top up a minimum of 100 baht, from this Saturday.

Skytrain delays till year-end:Rushhour glitch brings commuter misery. 26 June 2018 THE NATION

BANGKOK’S Skytrain is facing a growing number of complaints from city-dwellers and visitors over break?downs and extended delays the operator says might not be solved until year-end. Transport Minister Arkhom Termpitayapaisit yesterday said he had asked representatives from Bangkok Transit System plc (BTSC) to clarify the situation. Anat Arbhabhirama, director and advisor of BTSC, said the problem has been caused by radio frequency interference in the BTS train management system, especially at the busy Siam station.

Since the start of this year, there have been a total of 27 breakdowns and extended delays on the BTS system, which handles more than 900,000 passengers per day, with yesterday’s delays lasting more than four hours in the morning rush-hour and affecting tens of thousands of passengers. There have been as many as eight delays this month alone.However, Anat said the current BTS service still has a very high standard of service when delays lasting more than five minutes are taken into consideration, achieving 99.5 per cent of its target for punctuality.

The company is in the process of installing a new radio communication system for Siam and other stations. It will be fully protected from interference but won’t be completed until later this year, Anat said. The repeating problems have been caused by interference from other nearby radio frequencies, including those used by mobile phone operators in business and tourist districts, he said. The company has only two options: to shut down the entire system or to switch off the automatic train management system and operate the trains manually. Once trains are manually managed, service frequencies have to be reduced sharply, resulting in extended delays and long queues of passengers spilling on to streets at some stations. Anat said the overall signalling system will be much more stable later this year when the extended Bearing-Samut Prakan route becomes operational.

Transport minister Arkhom said the company, which operates the BTS service under a concession from the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration, needs to solve its problems quickly to avoid a further impact on the commuting public. Yesterday, the BTS’s extended delays started around 6am, with passengers strand?ed on the entire Skytrain network due to a signal malfunctioning at Siam station at the worst possible time of the week – Monday rush hour. The knock-on effect caused trains on the Sukhumvit route to slow. BTS broadcast a message to waiting passengers that technicians were trying to fix the problem as soon as possible. A follow-up message 35 minutes later, at 6.50am, said the signal system had malfunctioned on both the Silom and Sukhumvit routes, meaning trains would be delayed by 15 minutes. At 8.15am, BTS said the signal system on both the Silom and Sukhumvit lines was still faulty, causing the trains to move slowly – and reiterated that technicians were still trying to fix the problem.

BTSC is going to install MOXA frequency filter to deal with signal interference along with the change of frequency from 2400 MHz to 2500 MHz - after the threat from BMA to impose 1.8 million Baht fine a day for frequent breakdown

Are this all fake windows and doors (except for the obvious station entrances)? Or will those buildings house some commerce or shops, oriented towards the street?

In nay case, that station is a great thing for central Bangkok. Finally the metro is getting there.

Some windows are just façades, some can be opened and AFAIK, no, these buildings will be used only for commuters.

To clarify my question, neither of these stations is a terminal station. In order to use part of a line, the train would need to turn around. I can't imagine they designed a section of track to have a crossover? How will the trains be able to turn around if they just open a few stations on the line?
