Bring your mother and ride for free on Skytrain next Sunday
Mothers and their children – adults or kids – can ride the BTS Skytrain for free next Sunday, which is National Mother's Day, the operator said today.
BTSC confirmed in a statement that news circulating on social media about free rides on National Mother’s Day (August 12) was real, not fake.
The operator added that passengers who accompany their mothers on August 12 can also travel free of charge on the Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) system and the Gold Line monorail linking the BTS Silom line with Iconsiam shopping mall.
The free rides will be available from 6am to midnight, with the condition that children and their mothers get on and off at the same stations.
The free tickets will be available at ticket booths of the three public transportation services operated by BTSC.
Children up to the height of 90 centimetres will also ride for free.
The statement added that members of the public who suspect any information might be fake can check by calling BTSC at (02) 617 7300.
