Bangkok Expressway and Metro Public Company Limited
Inaugurated in 2004, the subway of Bangkok, the MRT Metro - Mass Rapid Transit Network, was opened in 2004 and is next to the BTS Skytrain the second public transport, with which daily crowds are moved. For more than a decade, there was only one route from Hoa Lamphong to Tao Poon, known as the Blue Line. Meanwhile, the blue line has been extended by a second stretch, the purple line. This runs from Tao Poon to Khlong Bang Phai.
Good Public Transport
The MRI is an ideal complement to the BTS Skytrain. With the BTS, a large part of the city center is already being used for traffic purposes. The metro also complements the route network in the city center and, in addition to relieving the entire traffic, leads with a route to the north-western part in the direction of Nonthaburi. The two current routes comprise 34 stops and another route, which will then receive orange as color, is under construction and is scheduled to be completed by 2022.
The vehicles of the MRT are very similar to those of the Skytrain BTS. Also, the barrier system for entering and leaving the driving range is similar to that of the Airport Rail Link system, so-called tokens are used instead of a ticket.
Tickets oder Token
To drive with the MRT you need a ticket here too, who used to drive with the BTS, should remember that BTS and MRT are from different operators and both modes of transport use their own ticket system, which applies exclusively to their own line and not is transferable to the other system. Unlike the BTS, there are no single tickets on the MRT, but tokens for individual trips. Again, it has focused on a simple system and the fare is also aich according to the number of stops to be covered. If you drive often and often, you can buy a rechargeable prepaid card.
