BTS Fares Rise Oct 1 2017

The operators of the BTS Skytrain have announced fares will rise between 1-3 baht from October 1.

The new rates are 16, 23, 26, 30, 33, 37 and 40 baht for one to seven stations and 44 baht for eight stations or more. The new prices apply to only the original BTS lines, not any extensions – Mo Chit-On Nut and National Stadium-Saphan Taksin.

Holders of 30-day passes will pay just 1 baht more per trip while those using a Rabbit card won’t see any increases for another six months.

This price increase is the first since June 2013 despite the owners concession allowing rises every 18 months.

Higher operating costs is believed to be the reasoning behind the move with the statement reading 46 new 4-carriage trains are set to be delivered in 2018, disabled facilities installed across the network and new touch screen ticketing machine set to be rolled out in the months ahead all listed as ways the operators are improving services for passengers.
