BANGKOK, Nov 4 (TNA) – The commuter train service on the Red Line railway is serving 6,105 people a day and will fully open in December, according to the transport minister.

 

Transport Minister Saksayam Chidchob reported the progress of the Red Line project after chairing a meeting on the commuter train service on the Red Line and the operation of the Bang Sue Grand Station.

 

He said that the Transport Ministry would officially open the Red Line commuter train service in December. The service made its soft opening on Aug 2 and has continued without a fare since then. It is carrying 6,105 people a day and shows a traffic growth rate of 13%, Mr. Saksayam said.

When it's free! I'm not convinced it will rise much when passengers have to pay. 

 

More parking at Rangsit might encourage me to use it but it would mean having to change trains at Bang Sue to get to work rather than driving a bit further and using the BTS and just one train (office is at MoChit/Chatuchak Park).

They still have not adjusted teh fairs on the lines.  They need to get them in order.  I can tell you that the Khu Khot line has a lot of people using it in the morning and at night.

 

Not sure how the red line will do it is sort of out of the way.  Does anyone know if they bult a parking area there.

Used it about a fortnight ago to get to the vaccination centre at Bang Sue.  Spent more time waiting at stations than travelling.  Had to change trains as some guy stole a part of the electric cable.  He was caught on CCTV.  You just cannot cure stupid.

Been like that on both lines since it started. Took 45 min to Taling Chan normally 12 min stopping everywhere due to technical difficulties. No maintenance, security, care or motivation.
