New Bangkok BTS line to start running in December

A new Bangkok public transport monorail extension, the BTS Gold Line, is expected to start running before the end of the year. The scheduled run is the first phase of the BTS Gold Line to be rolled out along the Chao Phraya River in the Bang Phlad district.

The new 1.72 kilometre BTS line will link Krung Thon Buriskytrain station to Klong San district office.The system was designed using rubber tyres and electricity to self-drive through the capital of Thailand, which produces lower noise and vibrations throughout the city.

The Gold Line was launched in 2018 and features 3 trains with 2 carriages each, offering service to a maximum capacity of 42,000 passengers per day.
The 1st phase will open the stations of Krung Thon Buri, Charoen Nakhon and Klong San first with the line eventually increasing transport options to cultural tourism sites in Bangkok.
