The Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) is negotiating with the Bangkok Mass Transit System Plc (BTSC), which operates the skytrain network, to cap train fares at 65 baht as a condition of being granted a 30-year contract to operate the entire system after its concession for the original route ends in 2029.

A source at the BMA said City Hall is considering awarding the contract from 2030-2059, under the public-private partnership (PPP) model to the BTSC with a condition that train fares are kept at a maximum of 65 baht until 2029.
