BTS Skytrain Offers 2 Free Trips to Appease Commuters

BANGKOK — The BTS Skytrain will compensate commuters affected by crippled service on Wednesday, and even those not directly affected may exploit the offer.

The Bangkok Mass Transit System Public Co. Ltd. announced Friday morning that passengers who experienced delays or abandoned their fares Wednesday are eligible to receive two free rides.

The only requirement is holding a valid Rabbit Card or 30-Day SmartPass with trips remaining as of Wednesday.


The free trips can be added at any BTS ticket booth beginning Tuesday through April 30.

On Wednesday morning, thousands of passengers were left stranded after a switching problem between the BTS Siam and Chit Lom stations resulted in reduced train frequency.

Service returned to normal Thursday after the switching system was repaired overnight.
