Deputy Bangkok Governor said fee will be collected from passengers travelling on the 5 stations comprising Bang Chak, Pannawithi, Udomsuk, Bangna and Baring stations which are the new extension of the BTS.

The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration had earlier resolved to exempt fee for the route when it started operation on 12 August - 1 January and later extended the fee exemption to the end of April to help people affected from flooding.

The Bt5.3 km extension on Silom route from Wongwianyai to Bang Wa will be in operation on 5 December this year.

From 1 May will have to pay 15 baht for BTS rides on the stretch from the station of Onnut to Baring station which has been in operation free of charge since last year.
