    BTS and BMCL Integrated Ticketing

    BTS and BMCL (the Subway operator) anounced some time ago that they were discussing options for future integrated ticketing. Has there been any updates on this - and what is the projected time for this to be implimented?

    Will it ever happen?

    It took 40 years to build the new airport. This is a bit easier so maybe in 2028 I estimate.

    Prolly never happen as the casual riders use different methods of payment. One is tokens and the other cards. Only the multi-pass use the rfid cards on both systems.

    Large costs associated with changing all the entrance/exit toll machines to say nothing about the money changers and token purchase machines.

    Unless that is, there are a few million baht to be made by some shyster.

    I am sure the shyster quotient is still quite high.

    the reasons for different machines it the first place would have had nothing to do with public convienance.

    I am sure the scam merchants are working on another system to be deployed onto public buses

    Except for the free ride ones. Not much profit to be made there.
