AIRPORT RAIL LINK
Airport Rail Link has abandoned plans to extend its 20-baht flat-rate fare scheme after failing to attract enough passengers.
The failure of the discount fare promotion on the City Line resulted in the service running at a loss of almost 2 million baht a month.
Chamroon Tangpaisarnkit, chairman of the SRT Electric Train Co which runs the Airport Rail Link, said yesterday the company board had decided not to extend the discounted rate because the number of passengers fell well short of the intended target. The 20 baht rate was introduced for the system's City Line on Oct 1 and ended on Dec 31.
