BTS Group Holdings Public Company Limited or the BTS Group has now embarked on the realisation of a new vision which is to provide the community with a unique and comprehensive range of City Solutions, which significantly contributes to an improved way of life, capitalising on the synergies of four principal businesses : Mass Transit, Media, Property and Services.
The BTS SkyTrain, Thailandís first metro transit system, has enhanced the countryís international image and dramatically changed the model for real estate development along city mass transit lines. With mass transit operation as its core business, the BTS Group can also draw on established expertise in the real estate business to develop the Groupís projects and realise its vision of a unique and comprehensive range of City Solutions.
As a leading innovator in Out-of-Home advertising, our Media business was established on the back of advertising and retail opportunities in BTS stations and on trains. Operations have now expanded to cover major modern trade stores nationwide.
Our most recently established services business has been designed to support and complement the services provided by three principal businesses of the Group, through the operation of an e-money system, which will form the platform for common ticket compatibility with other mass transit systems. The implementation of an e-money platform is a significant development in smartcard usage between strategic partners of the BTS Group, facilitating cashless payment for goods and services.
Focused on our unified vision, the BTS Group now ranks in the countryís top fifty companies in term of market capitalisation. With extensive resources and an effective workforce, shareholders can be confident in our future growth prospects and long term investment potential. The BTS Group is committed to the further expansion of city mass transit network and community development, aiming at improving quality of life and the environment through sustainable city living to international standards. Lifting levels of happiness in society is the responsibility of all businesses in the BTS Group. With loyalty and dedication, our management and staff are committed to contributing to the social development of the country.
