MRT Pink Line set for trials on 21 November

The Thailand Consumer Council (TCC) has proposed to the government to set a maximum fare of 20 baht for the MRT Pink Line.

Starting today, the MRT Pink Line (Khae Rai-Min Buri) will begin operating in trial mode. During the trial period (until December 18), rides for passengers will be free, after which a fare ranging from 15 to 45 baht will be charged.

The TCC asserts that the fare would be too high, as the average operating costs on other lines from 2014 to 2019 were approximately 10.1–16.3 baht per person per trip.

However, the council also emphasized that the maximum fare policy of 20 baht, currently in effect for the Red Line and Purple Line, should also be applied to the Pink Line. According to the TCC, this will help people reduce expenses and contribute to alleviating air pollution issues.
