Fares will be raised on the BTS skytrain's core 23.5-kilometre routes with effect on June 1, Bangkok Mass Transit System Plc (BTSC) announced on Monday.
Current fares range between 15 and 40 baht on the original routes from Mor Chit to On Nut and from the National Stadium to Saphan Taksin. The new fares will be between 15 and 42 baht, the first price hike in eight years.
