Thus, on the city center bus 5, 9 and 105, tram 47 and 49, trolleybus 74 and 76, and metro line 30, in addition, flights 85, 136E and trolleybus 80 departing from shopping malls and metro stations are also expected to increase traffic, they wrote.
In connection with the gradual restart, from April 12, additional flights will be more frequent between eight and ten o’clock in the evening, but BKK will constantly monitor passenger traffic and, if necessary, will place spare vehicles on the market.
The current holiday schedule is expected to be replaced by a school schedule on 19 April, in line with the opening of schools and kindergartens, and BKK will also maintain the previously introduced peak traffic restrictions.
