New Yellow Line Monorail Gets Positive Reviews

Thailand’s Yellow Line monorail trial run delighted commuters who gathered at Samrong station in Samut Prakan this past weekend to take the inaugural ride. The 30.4-kilometer line connects Lat Phrao in Bangkok to Samrong, with 23 stations. During the trial, service is available for 13 stations from Hua Mak to Samrong, providing a 30-minute travel time. The new Line aims to alleviate congestion on Srinakarin Road and enhance transportation convenience into the city. The monorail, operated by Eastern Bangkok Monorail (EBM), will begin commercial operations next month, with fares ranging from 15 to 45 baht. The Yellow Line integrates with the Green Line, Airport Rail Link, and Blue Line, while a future connection to the Orange Line is in progress. The trial run, offering free service until the end of June, operates from 9am to 8pm daily.

Our Take


I was actually planning on heading out to the Eastern Suburbs on opening day but wasn’t able to make it. From what I have heard and read though, it seems like it’s a great addition to that part of the city, and will be especially awesome once it’s fully connected to all of the other lines in the area based on the expansion map.
