Platform-A(18,28,108,515), Platform-B(542,539,536,538), Platform-C(12,14,92,171), Platform-D (8,97,157,509,R26E).
People : The design provide a predation level above the bus platform to separate other activity from queuing people. There are four waiting areas for people who are not is hurry and would like to take a little rest. People who wait in these area can see their bus coming physically and on the digital screen. There is also the bypass for people to want to crossover to BTS and to the other side of the street. Kiosks and restrooms are on this level.
