7:14pm, July 3, 2004 – The subway is open!

At 7:14pm, the gate went up at the Rama 9 subway station (right). Crowds rushed into the station and lined up to buy tickets.

Passengers who bought the 10 baht token received a BCML frame with a subway postcard. Those who purchased the 300 baht Smart Card received a BCML billfold.

A northbound subway car that arrived at the station at 7:36pm was already so packed with people that no further passengers could board.
