The Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA) will provide QR code ticket-buying services on two more airport bus routes following the success of test services on two routes this week.

Prayoon Chuaykaew, acting BMTA director, said there were no technical errors during the test runs on the A1 Don Mueang-Mor Chit and A2 Don Mueang-Victory Monument services on Monday.

Prayoon said 376 passengers used their mobile banking apps to pay for bus tickets - 273 on A1 buses and 103 on A2 buses.

Prayoon said the QR code payment service will be officially launched on the A1 and A2 bus routes on June 14.

The BMTA will start using QR code payments on the A3 Don Mueang-Lumpini route and A4 Don Mueang-Sanam Luang route on July 1. It will consider adding the service to other routes later, Prayoon said.
