Bangkok MRT Blue Line Fare Increases Starting Wednesday

Effective this Wednesday, commuters on Bangkok’s MRT Blue Line will encounter a modest rise in fares, increasing by a minimum of two baht. Bangkok Expressway and Metro Plc (BEM), the operator overseeing the metro line, has implemented this adjustment in accordance with contractual obligations allowing for biennial fare revisions based on changes in the consumer price index (CPI). The new fare structure, ranging from 17 to 45 baht, supersedes the previous range of 17 to 43 baht and will be applicable until July 2, 2026.

The adjustment comes amidst efforts by BEM to maintain service standards and sustain operational costs amid economic fluctuations. In addition to the fare increase, BEM has announced discounted rates for specific demographics, including a 10% fare reduction for students with valid identification cards and a substantial 50% discount for seniors utilizing senior cards.

For further details regarding the revised fare structure or additional inquiries, commuters are encouraged to contact the BEM information center at 02-624-5200. Alternatively, comprehensive information can be accessed through BEM’s official social media platforms, facilitating greater accessibility and transparency for affected passengers.
