S4 is under construction, supposed to open back end of next year.

 

I'm not aware of any plans for N6 I'm afraid.

I rode from Hat Yek to Phra Khanong the other day and was amazed at how fast I could make that schelp. Im very impressed by the system. I know there are niggling problems, but its world class.

Most know by now with Crossy's great updates that the section from Five intersection Latphrao to Kasetsart Uni will open on Dec 4 - from 1pm I believe?

 

It depends upon what dignitaries are involved, 1PM is probably close for public operation.

 

By the way, the extension will be free to ride at least until early next year.

 

I also see that MoChit is getting the "missing" stairs and the escalator up to the northbound platform.

 

And don't forget you can now top up and buy passes for your Rabbit card at the big ticket machines at all BTS stations.

Four stations of the Blue are opening tomorrow for free rides....looks like you can start by Gateway Mall at Bang Pho, but not Tao Poon.  They have been doing a lot of work on the ferry terminal there, but have yet to bring the stop over from the west side of the river.  I predict Bang Pho will be a boom town kind of place, and massive transportation hub.

It dawned on me while travelling today that the Samut Prakan extension must have been open nearly, or more than a year now and still free to ride....not that I'm grumbling about still only paying 15B to ride from Paknam to Bang Chak (E10). 😎

Just got back from the new blue stations.  You can board anywhere that is open and ride to the four new stations, but not free unless it is travel within the four new blue.

The question remains, when will the river boats start using the Bang Pho Pier?
