Considering that Bangkok (Krung Thep) is a low-lying plain which is prone to flooding, all of the Metro station entrances are raised about one meter above the ground level and are equipped with built-in floodgates in order to avoid water inundating the system as its mentioned in Metro map Bangkok (Krung Thep). Lifts and ramps are found at all stations, providing easy access for passengers in wheelchairs. Stations have multiple passage ways (generally four) which allow passengers to connect to any corner of the adjacent surface intersection. Passageways between exits are very spacious and some are beginning to open as malls. Maps depicting the local area and exit points are posted on the walls on the way out. Due to safety considerations, platform screen doors are installed. Uniformed security personnel and security cameras are present at each and every platform.

The construction of the first Bangkok (Krung Thep) Metro line, officially known as Chaloem Ratchamongkhon (Thai สาย เฉลิม รัช มงคล) - "Celebration of Royal Auspice" - or informally as the "Blue Line", began on 19 November 1996. The project suffered multiple delays not only because of the 1997 economic crisis , but also due to challenging civil engineering works of constructing massive underground structures deep in the water-logged soil upon which the city is built. Bangkok (Krung Thep) subway blue Line was opened for a limited public trial period of several weeks starting on 13 April 2004. On 3 July 2004 the line was officially opened at 19:19 local time by HM King Bhumibol and Queen Sirikit , who were accompanied by other members of the royal family. Within 30 minutes of its opening, sightseers filled the system to its maximum capacity, but after the initial rush ridership has settled down to around 180,000 riders daily - considerably lower than projections of over 400,000, despite fares being slashed in half from 12-38 baht to 10-15 baht per trip as its shown in Bangkok (Krung Thep) subway map. From 2006 until 2008, fares ranged between 14-36 baht per trip. The fare was raised to 16-41 Baht on 1 January 2009. Current ridership (2012) stands at 240,000 on weekdays.
On the birthday of HM King Rama IX, 5 December 1999, an elevated two-line Skytrain (officially called BTS) metro system was opened.

Due to the Asian financial crisis of 1997 construction was halted and the concrete pillars were left unused. Bangkok (Krung Thep) MRT subway system opened for use in July 2004.
