If your destination isn’t shown on the screen, you’ll need to switch lines, which you may do by pressing the blue or purple button on the top left of the touchscreen. The precise fare will be shown on the screen. Tickets must be purchased one at a time from these Ticket Vending Machines.

It is also possible to buy a Saved Value Card, which is a smart card that can be stored and filled up with a value for several journeys, but if you are just visiting Bangkok as a tourist for a limited time and will seldom use MRT, it is typically not worth it. Any MRT Station Ticket Office may sell and top up a Stored Value Card.

The train’s doors will come to a halt directly in front of the arrows pointing back from the track, and passengers will exit there.

When you’re in the car, take a seat or grab anything to keep yourself from falling or stepping on someone else’s foot. This subway moves quickly, and stops are often short, so make sure you’re close to the exit door to get out on time. Expect other passengers to leave you alone, since they are usually unconcerned with other people’s affairs

If you are not fast enough you might miss your stop

Unlike the BTS, the MRT allows you to walk from one exit to the next without purchasing a new ticket. However, since some stations are fairly large, you will have to go all the way back if you choose the incorrect exit.

Reading the signs, which point out the important landmarks of each exit, is the best approach to find your exit. Local area maps are also available at the station and on the Bangkok Metro website.
