Now that all three driverless trains for the BTS Gold Light Rail Line have been delivered, trials on the 1.8-kilometre route will begin immediately before the service is officially launched on October 29.
The monorail will stop at three stations – Krung Thonburi, Charoen Nakhon and Klong San – before linking up with the BTS Green Line.
The unmanned Bombardier Innovia APM 300 trains can reach a maximum speed of 80 kilometres per hour.
Commuters can use the service for free until October 29, after which rides on the Gold Line will cost Bt16 per person.
