How to ride BTS skytrain with a baby stroller

Updated: Oct 19, 2021

Among public transportations in #Bangkok, the #skytrain 🚅 and #subway 🚇 are the most reliable for me due to the safety and the punctuality. However, taking a little one in a baby #stroller with me, It's not quite easy. But it couldn't be more difficult if you know the tricks and prepare your trip in advance.




First, avoid rush hours! and I recommend that your destination should be reached in just 5-6 stops. Further than that the little one can get annoyed. Avoid rush hrs.⏰and let him take some toys 🚙 or books he love on the train. Sunglasses, cap, and long pants help a lot on the way to a station under sunlight ☀️🕶️👒


Lift is so important ♿ Sadly, from the street floor, some stations have none. Or some have only one side of the road but the other side has a skybridge connected to the building in the area. So you can pass through that building 🏢to/back from the skytrain. There're 10 stations you should avoid if you don't want life by #BTS turn too hard because there's no lift at all or there's only one side and no skybridge connection on the other side;

Anyway, you can check from BTS skytrain application if the only one lift that each station has is on your side, also where the lift is.



Up to the ticket floor, your kid can enjoy using the ticket machine. Kid below 90 cm. is free of charge. After checking which railway to your destination, take the lift on that side to the platform.


Right after stepping out of the lift, wait for the train at the disabled sign on the floor. The wagon with a space for the wheelchair or trolley will stop here. Don't forget to lock the trolley's wheels while on board.


In/out of the station, you can use the special gate. But before getting out, remember to check which exit has the lift down to the street so you don't miss the right gate.

However, you could find some steps while walking in the station or on a skywalk. But Thai people are kind enough to help you lift the trolley with a baby, just a smile in exchange ☺️
