Chairman Keeree Kanjanapas said the BTS, the first company to raise funds through an infrastructure fund, plans to bid for the Green Line extensions from Mor Chit to Saphan Mai and from Bearing to Samut Prakan. The Pink Line from Khae Rai to Min Buri is expected to call for bids no later than next year, while an 18-kilometre light-rail project from Bang Na to Suvarnabhumi airport is in the pipeline.
