Our MOVE business aims to provide daily door-to-door transportation to people across multiple modes, whether on rail, road, water or air. From pioneering the first BTS SkyTrain 20 years ago, our current rail network now covers 135.0km. Further, in order to provide a complete journey, as well as first and last mile transportation solutions, we have broadened into other non-rail segments (including bus, ferry, intercity motorway and airport). MOVE’s goal remains to accompany safe and convenient daily travelling for our passengers to uplift people’s way of life.
