Public Relations director Aim-Acha Phongparnphanu said the expanded services will begin on Jan 14.
The company will increase the train schedule of the two Express Lines, the Phaya Thai Express (Phaya Thai – Suvarnabhumi – Phaya Thai) and Makkasan Express (Makkasan –Suvarnabhumi – Makkasan) to once every hour from 6am to midnight.
The City Line, which caters for regular commuters, is packed with passengers during the 8am to 8.30am rush hour, up to 113% of planned capacity, therefore another five trips will be added from the Express Line to ease the congestion during rush hours.
Moreover, the new schedule will be easy to remember and passengers can plan their trips accordingly, he said.
The schedule will also allow the trains to stop longer at each station, giving passengers more time to depart and board..
