Sukhumvit Line is one of the main BTS lines you can take to visit many interesting spots and neighbourhoods in Bangkok. It now has 4 more stations added to the route, making commuters living in Bang Khen district of Bangkok able to travel into the city faster and easier. 


Free trips between new stations from 4th June 2020


Extended from Kasetsart University BTS station, 4 more new stations will be opened for service on 4th June 2020. The stations include Royal Forest Department (N14), Bang Bua (N15), 11th Infantry Regiment (N16) and Wat Phra Sri Mahathat (N17).

During the trial period, BTS users can travel within these 4 new stations for free from 1PM on 4th June 2020 until further notice.
