MRT Purple Line Missing Link: Bang Sue – Bang Son Free Shuttle Train

With the opening of the MRT Blue Line Tao Poon Extension, the MRT Purple Line Bang Sue – Tao Poon Free Shuttle Train is no longer in operation.


With the opening of the MRT Purple Line between Tao Poon and Khlong Bang Phai, there is a missing link to the rest of the Bangkok Metro network as the section of the MRT Blue Line between Tao Poon and Bang Sue has not been completed.

As a replacement, there are free shuttle trains on top of free shuttle buses plying between Bang Sue and Bang Son until the missing link is completed. The free shuttle trains operate only on weekday peak hours at 15-minute intervals.

The free shuttle train service is provided by SRT with British Rail Class 158/T Sprinter DMUs.

The free shuttle train service between Bang Sue and Bang Son operate during weekday peak hours only, from 6.30am to 9.30am and again from 4.30pm to 8.30pm, operating at 15 minute intervals. The boarding location is the same as the waiting area for the free shuttle buses at Bang Sue Railway Station Platform 1.

    Now, such a feeder from Bangsue to Bangson is running ONLY on weekdays though as Buses can cover better – Hope that this will be relieved after Junta has applied the decree to realize the real 1200 meter extension from Bangsue to Tao Poon in August 2017 and red line commuter with the opening of Bangsue Central along with red line commuter networks in 2020.
