Bangkok’s Yellow Line Monorail trial run proceeds smoothly

Mr. Keeree Kanjanapas, the Chairman of BTS Group, led the Board of Directors and management team on a trial run of the Yellow Line monorail from the Yellow Line depot to Sri Nut station.

This trial run went smoothly after the earlier successful trial run of the Pink Line monorail discovered no issues either. Whilst there are still many milestones to complete before operation, the operating team will keep testing periodically to ensure that all the systems work consistently, effectively, and safely.

Mr. Surapong Laoha-Unya, CEO of MOVE, expected that the operation of both monorail lines will open in phases. The first phase of the Pink Line that will open is from the Government Complex (PK12) to Min Buri (PK30) except Noppharat (PK26), while the Yellow Line first phase is from Phawana (YL02) to Samrong (YL23) within this year.

The Pink and Yellow Monorail Lines are the next phase in BTS Group’s commitment to give passengers a choice to travel on non road based and non carbon emitting forms of transport, providing a better life options and air quality to people in Great Bangkok and its vicinity, as well as enhancing Thailand’s economy.
