BANGKOK, April 29 (TNA) – The State Railway of Thailand suspended its services of 121 trains from April 30 to May 31 to help contain COVID-19.
SRT said that the service suspension responded to the Center for COVID-19 Situation Administration’s request for people to stop traveling to cope with the latest COVID-19 wave. The service suspension covered both long-distance and short-distance trains.
SRT said it suspended only trains on less popular routes and those running outside rush hours. Meanwhile, as many as 115 trains continued with their daily services on both short and long-distance routes and their services were sufficient for the public, the state enterprise said.
Travelers affected by the service suspension can seek refunds at all train stations. (TNA)
