    @BTS (which also goes for BEM (MRT):

    – do they have sufficient additional trains and carriages to increase frequency (well, on the other side they will have somewhat shorter daily operational hours than usual)?

    – their operational costs will very probably rise while passenger volume will decrease (for example no tourists), so i guess that won’t look good on their figures (except if they would increase fares like some airlines do, but then they are expensive compared with other train/subway/public transport services in the region already).

    • Yes daily op hours are still shorter because of the curfew

      Well compared to the months of March and April I think May will probably look better. I have been driving my car daily to the office because there is no traffic. When traffic resumes…which it has started I suspect I’ll be back on the trains rather soon.
