    Absolutely, I agree..... BTS (and MRT) are at their peak right now; fast, affordable and effective. I simply say - run more trains at peak travel times. There is a 'comfort limit' to the trains (where people do not want to board); I watch people not get on because there is not enough room. Run a couple more trains-at peak times, that's all. The demand is there, people like it. I say protect the reputation before it becomes like the bus system.

    As I understand it, BTS are insisting on an extension to their franchise before they'll agree to spending more money on additional stock. The BMA should be insisting that BTS improve their passenger's comfort before talks about an extension can continue.

    I understand that the BTS management wants to make profit and they should make some profit to keep the skytrain up and running. But if carriages are crowded more and more and if passengers are uncomfortable then they will lose customers and money.
    I think the only positive aspect about many passengers is the fact that with more passengers talking it’s harder to hear the annoying advertisement. But I guess the management will react to that soon and turn up the advertisement volume...
