Bangkok city ordered to pay 11.75 billion baht owed to Skytrain operator

The Central Administrative Court on Wednesday ordered Bangkok City Hall to pay 11.75 billion baht it owes to Bangkok Mass Transit System Corp (BTSC) for operating the Green Line’s extension routes.

The court was ruling on a lawsuit BTSC filed against the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) demanding payment of the debt.

The debt consisted of 9.41 billion baht for the operation of the Bearing-Samut Prakan and Mo Chit-Khu Khot extensions from April 2017 to May 2021, and 2.34 billion baht for the company’s  operation of the Saphan Taksin-Bang Wa and On Nut-Bearing extensions from May 2019 to May 2021.

Rides on the Mo Chit-Khu Khot and Bearing-Samut Prakan have been free of charge. The BMA took over the extension projects from the Mass Rapid Transit Authority.

Earlier, BTSC said that the BMA owed it about 40 billion baht, which included charges for the installation of electrical and mechanical systems on the Green Line.
