Fares on new city-Don Mueang bus routes set at B50

Fares on two new air-conditioned bus services between the inner city and Don Mueang airport have been set at 50 baht - an increase from the 30 baht charged on two other routes.

The Don Mueang airport airport director Petch Chanchroen said he was advised of the fare by the Bangkok Mass Transit Authority.

The 20 baht rise in the cost of a ticket on the A3 and A4 bus services reflected the actual operating cost, according to the BMTA, he said. The new service began on May 1. 

The A3 bus operates between Don Mueang airport and Lumpini Park. The A4 bus runs between Don Mueang airport and Sanam Luang. 

The route is longer than the existing A1 and A2 bus services, which were launched earlier. Those fares remain at 30 baht.

The A1 bus line runs between Don Mueang airport and Chatuchak and the A2 route between Don Mueang airport and Victory Monument. 

The A3 route is along Don Mueang tollway to Din Daeng, Ratchaprarop, Makkasan intersection, Pratunam, Ratchaprasong, Ratchadamri, Sarasin intersection, Sala Daeng and Witthayu Road with the final stop opposite Lumpini police station.

The A4 route is along Don Mueang tollway, Lan Luang, Phan Fa, Ratchadamnoen Avenue, Democracy Monument, Din So, Wat Bowon Niwet and Khao San Road to Sanam Luang, said Mr Petch.

Don Mueang airport had already made the necessary changes to the bus fares shown on its information posts and altered its database, he said.
