The system consists of two lines, the Sukhumvit Line, which shows up as light green on the BTS System Map and the Silom Line, which shows up as dark green on the BTS System Map. There are about 34 stations total across both lines of BTS Bangkok and the trains serve well over 500,000 passengers per day. There is a link at the bottom of the page that shows the system map and how you can use BTS Bangkok to connect to the Airport Rail Link, the Mass Rapid Transit Route (MRT), and the Bus Rapid Transit Route (BRT).

If you are going to be staying in Bangkok for an extended period of time it may be more worthwhile to get a Rabbit Card. The Rabbit Card is an e-money system that allows you to add money to the balance of the card so that you can use it for payment. The good thing about the card is that you can use it at a number of retailers such as McDonald’s, Burger King etc., not just for BTS Bangkok.
