Public Transportation in Bangkok

Update 16/09/2018


While it is entirely possible for you to drive yourself around during your stay in Bangkok, traffic can often be a problem, and it can be a bit confusing trying to make your way around with all the interweaving roads. Fortunately, Bangkok has a very good public transportation system that makes it much easier for you to get around.

One of the most popular ways of getting around the city is by using the Bangkok Mass Transit System, also known as the “BTS,” or sometimes the “Skytrain.” The BTS is an elevated train system, which allows for some pretty spectacular views as you ride along on tracks high above the normal ground traffic. It is made up of two lines – The Sukhumvit Line and the Silom Line – And stops at 34 stations. Riding the BTS will allow you easy access to most major destinations around Bangkok. The trains run every day from 6:30 am to 12 am. Keep in mind that the busiest hours for the BTS are between 7 am and 9 am, and 4 pm to 7 pm, and trains tend to be very crowded during these hours.

Whereas the BTS is above ground, the Bangkok Mass Rapid Transit network (or MRT) is the city’s underground transportation system.  The MRT currently only has one operating line, but there are plans to have four in total. It currently has 18 stations along its 12 mile route. The wait between trains at any given station is usually in the five-to-seven-minute range. The busiest operating hours for the MRT are between 7 am and 9 am, and 4 pm to 7 pm. Trains run daily from 6 am to 12 am.

If you would rather travel by car but don’t want to drive yourself, you can take a taxi to get around Bangkok. They are usually pretty easy to find, especially around hotels and popular tourist attractions. Fares typically start at around $0.98, but then start adding $0.30 for every additional mile. If you end up stuck in traffic, fares can be a little more expensive, charging around $3.38 per hour you are stuck in traffic. You can ride cabs to just about any destination around the city, though keep in mind that traffic may cause issues in terms of reaching your destination on time. If you decide to travel by taxi, give yourself extra time to reach your destination.
