The Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA) has started selling week and month tickets aimed to help reduce each commuterís travel expense by 400 THB per month.

BMTA Director Opas Phetmunee stated that the week and month tickets had been introduced as an alternative for people who frequently use public bus services to save on their commuting costs. With unlimited trips, the weekly and monthly tickets are priced at 100 THB and 400 THB, respectively, for regular buses and 200 THB and 800 THB for air-conditioned buses.

Mr Opas expected approximately 10 percent of public bus riders, or about 100,000 people, to avail themselves of the new passes each month while the amount of money to be saved could be as high as 400 THB per month per person. They can be purchased at all BMTA offices from today onwards.
