SRT 'ready' to handle holiday commuters
The SRT has prepared 245 train routes to transport 96,746 passengers around the country and make sure that no New Year holiday commuters are left behind at Bangkok railway station on Saturday.
Thakoon Intharachom, director of the train operation division, said the State Railway of Thailand would be ready to provide extra train services if needed to ensure that all passengers leave Bangkok and get to their destination.
On Friday, he said, the SRT provided 244 normal train routes and three extra routes to transport more than 100,000 passengers nationwide.
He said passengers could call the 1690 SRT hotline around the clock to inquire about available train services.
