BANGKOK — Commuters can now use their cleverphones to pay for fares by QR code at six BTS Skytrain stations, the operator announced Thursday.

 

The system is being piloted at BTS Siam, Ari, Chong Nonsi, Samrong, Paknam and Kheha, with the aim of expanding it to all stations by next month, according to BTS chief Surapong Laoha-Unya.

'Often, commuters without enough coins for a ticket have to line up to get change from an attendant then requeue to pay the machine'.

 

Because it would be too sensible, logical and common sense to give the customer a ticket instead of change for them to queue again at a machine.

Difficult to understand why it is not done on the Skytrain as the Underground is doing it since the beginning. I guess different "administrators". The one for the Skytrain never used it !

The QR payment works pretty well, a lot slower than banging in a few coins, but far faster than queuing to get change (of course you could use one of the machines that take notes).
