BANGKOK, 20 April 2012 The Bangkok Mass Transit System Public Co (BTS) is introducing a “Rabbit Pass” to current holders of BTS 30-Day Smart Pass to use on the newly extended On Nut-Bearing section on the Sukhumvit Line.
Surapong Laoha-Unya, Executive Director of BTS Group, said a new flat-rate fee of 15 baht for the extension from On Nut to Bearing stations will not be applied to passengers holding a 30-day smart pass. A new pass titled “Rabbit Pass” will replace the old one, and holders of valid smart passes can obtain the new pass free of charge at all BTS ticket offices by presenting staff with the old 30-day pass, starting from April 23 to December 31 this year.

Mr Surapong said the company is planning to discontinue the distribution of the 30-day Smart Pass and start selling the Rabbit Pass to BTS passengers on April 23.
He added that the price of the 1-day travel card will also be adjusted from 120 baht to 130 baht, commencing on May 1.
