BTS - Bangkok - Thailand

BTS Bangkok Thailand The BTS Skytrain is the safest, most comfortable and convenient way to get around Bangkok. In service since December 5, 1999, it has transformed the face of public transportation in the Thai capital, for the first time offering both residents and visitors a comfortable ride through central Bangkok - lifting commuters above the chronic congestion, noise and pollution of the streets below. Our modern electrified trains transport Bangkok's commuters in wide air-conditioned cars, saving them time with quick, reliable service. The BTS SkyTrain's high-capacity operating system ensures almost no breakdowns and a virtual 100% punctuality. Each train can carry over 1,000 passengers while a similar number of people would use 800 cars, making the BTS Skytrain the most environmentally friendly mass transit system in Thailand. Currently there are two routes, the Sukhumvit Line and the Silom Line. They cover much of the central city and its many commercial, residential and tourist areas, with extensions planned to outlying areas. The trains run daily between 6:00 am and 12:00 midnight with frequent service throughout the day, increased during rush hours. The fare is based on the distance traveled. The BTS is eager to help promote tourism in Bangkok and assist foreign visitors who use our system. At the BTS Tourist Information Center visitors can get useful information on Bangkok’s variety of attractions and assistance in traveling around town. Our services include offering boat tickets for the Chao Praya River Tour, and internet services. Kick off a great journey around Bangkok with the Skytrain - the city’s safest, most convenient, and most reliable transport. Take it to see Bangkok's many attractions, including some of its best shopping places and cultural sights. To make your visit even more memorable, we offer a river tour using the Chao Praya Express Boat Company to visit the magnificent historical places along the Chao Praya River. Find out just how easy and convenient it is to use the BTS SkyTrain to see Bangkok's many commercial, tourist, shopping and cultural sights with our one-day travel programs.
