In 2015, however, the BMA, with support from the National Council for Peace and Order (Thailand's ruling military junta), began cracking down on street vendors in a bid to reclaim public space. Many famous market neighbourhoods were affected, including Khlong Thom, Saphan Lek, and the flower market at Pak Khlong Talat. Nearly 15,000 vendors were evicted from 39 public areas in 2016. While some applauded the efforts to focus on pedestrian rights, others have expressed concern that gentrification would lead to the loss of the city's character and adverse changes to people's way of life.
Bangkok is one of Asia's busiest air transport hubs. Two commercial airports serve the city, the older Don Mueang International Airport and the newer Suvarnabhumi Airport. Suvarnabhumi, which replaced Don Mueang as Bangkok's main airport after its opening in 2006, served 52,808,013 passengers in 2015, making it the world's 20th busiest airport by passenger volume. This volume exceeded its designed capacity of 45 million passengers. Don Mueang reopened for domestic flights in 2007, and resumed international service focusing on low-cost carriers in October 2012. Suvarnabhumi is undergoing expansion to increase its capacity to 60 million passengers by 2019 and 90 million by 2021.

The line was not part of the current M-Map Master Plan as the line was proposed by the owners of Iconsiam mall in July 2015 to provide a feeder service to Iconsiam. The project was approved by the Thai Cabinet in September 2016 with an initial planned opening of late 2018. Preliminary works began in June 2018 with major construction commencing in September 2018.
At the end of August 2020, overall work for the Gold Line was 95% complete. The line was due to open on 1 October 2020 and initial test runs began on 11 September. However, further test runs revealed that additional tests would be required of the signaling and operational systems before full operations could start. The President of the BTSC stated that a further two months of tests were required and that the line would not open until December 2020. In early December, an opening date of 16 December 2020 was announced. Upon opening, a one month free travel period was in effect until 15 January 2021.
Gold Line trains operate from 06:00 to 00:00 with a frequency range of six to twelve-minute intervals. During the free fare period for the first month of operations in January 2021, the line was averaging between 5000 to 6000 daily passengers with 3000 using Iconsiam station.

As a result we ended up with the current red/gold transfer @ Union station, the blue/green transfer @ Willowbrook, the Red/Orange transfer @ North Hollywood, and the expected transfer of the At-grade Expo line with the Below-grade Crenshaw line at Exposition and Crenshaw. These types of transfer stations make it difficult to provide a secure zone free transfer ala Tokyo or London.
The best way to deal with the current transfer penalty between rail/brt lines without having to spend massive amounts of money on redesigning the transfer stations is to implement a free time-based transfer. That way if a customer has to leave the fare zone to transfer to another line they would not be penalized. Of course this should also be done in conjunction with a zone/distance base fare system so as not impact revenue.
Are station name changes such a high priority item as opposed to using the same amount of funds to invest in alternative revenue sources like putting parking meters to existing free park-and-ride lots? Said name changes can be done later through revenue earned from parking fees. 2b1af7f3a8
