Free shuttles linking Bangkok’s downtown rail terminal to the capital’s new main station will commence Thursday.

To ease the transition of rail services from the Bangkok Railway Station to the Krung Thep Apiwat Grand Station – located about 10 kilometers away – regular buses will shuttle travelers between them. 

Thursday is when nearly half of the trains operating out of the former station (aka Hua Lamphong and actually a terminal) will move to the new national “terminal” (actually a station) in Bangkok’s Bang Sue district.

Blue NGV buses will travel between the two stations every half hour between 4:30am and 11pm. 

So, where to find the bus? As of 5pm on Tuesday, a BMTA rep said that they hadn’t figured that out yet.

The service will be run jointly by the bus operator Bangkok Mass Transit Authority and the state railway.
