Getting around Bangkok is easy. The city has a vast transportation network offering various options for getting around the city. Local transport in Bangkok includes the efficient elevated BTS Skytrain and MRT underground Subway systems. They are both undergoing rapid expansion with extensions to the existing routes under construction. More new lines have been scheduled for completion between 2020-2022. There are also plans for an e-ticketing system to combine all the city’s public transportation systems. Firstly it will start with a joint ticket for the BTS/MRT/Airport Rail Link networks available before the end of 2019. City buses, Canal, and Riverboats will join at a later date. Apart from the Sky Train and Subway, Bangkok has a vast Bus network, Canal Boats, Riverboats, Taxis, Tuk-Tuks, and Motorcycle Taxis.
If you’re leaving the city to travel around Thailand or on to other destinations there are several low-cost airlines as well as trains, passenger vans, and long-distance buses.
