How to take Bangkok BRT buses?

BRT buses in Bangkok

The BRT (Bangkok Bus Rapid Transit sytem) is a bus system a little different from the classic buses in Bangkok. It is a kind of mix between bus and BTS, the metro station. The stations and selling ticket process are very similar to those of the BTS and if they are buses, they have their own lane and therefore are not impacted by trafic jams so that must explain the word 'rapid' in their name. There is only one line that has 12 stops from Sathorn to Ratchapruek. Each end of the line is connected to the BTS: at Chong Nonsi station in Sathorn, close to Mahanakhon skywalk and Talat Phlu for Ratchapruek. There is a single 15 THB fare, regardless of the distance. This bus system, which was almost stopped in 2017, still works and allows you to easily reach the surprising 'Marvel & Manga temple' Wat Pariwat.
