About the BTS in Bangkok
The BTS, or ‘Sky Train’ as it is also known, is Bangkok’s elevated suburban railway network. This popular service gives passengers the dual benefits of avoiding Bangkok’s congested road network and great views of the city from the vantage point of the tracks high about street level. There are two BTS lines, the Sukhumvit Line and the Silom Line, with a combined track length of 53.5 km and 43 stations on route. The BTS network also has interchanges with the MRT (metro), the Airport Link (to Suvarnabhumi Airport), train services operated by the State Railways of Thailand, and the Chao Phraya Express Boat Service. Once you access the BTS system you can travel quickly and cheaply to most parts of the city centre, except for the area around the Khao San Road which is yet to be connected to Bangkok’s rapid transport network. Most visitors familiar with Bangkok tend to use a combination of the BTS, MRT and Chao Phraya Express Boat services, along with meter taxis, to get around Bangkok with more ease than simply relying on the city’s overcrowded road network.
Buying a single journey ticket for travel on the BTS is very simple. Before the ticket gates there are coin operated ticket machines. You select the destination by pressing a touch screen and the ticket machine will tell you how much money to insert into the coin slot. Once you pay a ticket is issued which you use to pass through the ticket gates as you enter and leave the BTS network. By international standards the BTS is cheap, although the tickets are a lot more expensive than travelling by bus and for this reason many of Bangkok’s low income earners do not use the BTS, instead taking long journeys on slow city centre bus services. As of January 2020 typical one-way adult fares include:
- Nana (Sukhumvit Road) to Siam (Siam Square): 26 THB
- Chong Nongsi (Silom Road) to Saphan Taksin (Chao Phraya Express Boat Pier): 26 THB
- Bang Wa (closest BTS station to the Southern Bus Terminal) to Phaya Thai (interchange to the Airport Link): 59 THB
