Just stunned, 30 days, 20 baht throughout the line, a loss of 7.4 million per day! It's surprising. Minister of Transport No press conference on the implementation of the 20 baht electric train policy throughout the line for the Red Line and Purple Line. After using it for 30 days or 1 month, which is enough to evaluate that Are the results satisfactory? This is different from the first day of activation of this policy on October 16, 2023, where the Minister of Transport Held a big press conference by holding up a 20 baht note and smiling widely in front of many reporters.1. Evaluating the policy of 20 baht throughout the line over a period of 30 days is a comparison of the results before using this policy 30 days during the period from 16 September 2023 to 15 Oct. 2023 with after using this policy for 30 days during the period. 16 Oct. 2023 to 14 Nov. 2023, excluding public holidays2. Revenue dropped by 5 hundred thousand per day, loss of 7.4 million per day after implementing the policy of 20 baht throughout the line for 30 days. It was found that these 2 electric train lines had an average daily income of 1.3 million baht, consisting of revenue from Red Line 5. 800,000 baht for the Purple Line, 8 hundred thousand baht, a decrease from the original 500,000 baht per day, or 28%, while having expenses for operating both lines, averaging 8.7 million baht per day, causing a loss of 7.4 million baht per day. As for the volume of passengers, it was found that these two electric train lines had an average of 91,450 passenger trips per day. If passengers traveled 2 trips per day, it would be calculated as 45,725 people per day, consisting of 13,064 Red Line passengers. There are 32,661 people on the Purple Line, an increase from the previous 10,893 trips per day, or 5,446 people per day, equivalent to 13%. 3. Continue or is this enough? It is the duty of Minister of Transport That must be considered. Is the reduced revenue worth the increased passenger traffic? And most importantly, a way must be found to significantly increase the number of passengers. I would like to recommend that the Minister of Transport Secretly went to the area to observe the use of the Red Line and Purple Line. according to various stations without having to invite journalists along will get the fact that Why didn't the number of passengers increase as planned? Then find a solution to significantly increase the number of passengers. This will help reduce losses. This period is a good opportunity to increase passenger numbers. Due to the opening of the Pink Line which has a station connected to the Red Line and Purple Line. This allows passengers on the Pink Line to easily and quickly switch to the Red and Purple Lines. As a result, the Red Line and Purple Line had more passengers. Minister of Transport The 20 baht policy must be expedited for all lines for every color of the electric train, by paying 20 baht just once, using any line, any color, not only the red line and purple line only. As campaigned.
