The Mass Rapid Transit Master Plan in Bangkok Metropolitan Region or M-Map is the latest version in a series of Thai government plans for the development of an urban rail transit network serving the Greater Bangkok area. It was drafted under the care of the Office of Transport and Traffic Policy and Planning (OTP) of the Ministry of Transport.

Mass Rapid Transit Systems Master Plan (MTMP)
The first version of the plan, endorsed by the cabinet on 27 September 1994 and to be implemented from 1995 to 2011, consisted of an extension of 135 kilometres (84 mi) to the three systems already in progress (the MRT Blue Line, the Sukhumvit and Silom lines of the BTS Skytrain and the Bangkok Elevated Road and Train System (BERTS)), which would have had a combined length of 103 kilometres (64 mi).
Urban Rail Transportation Master Plan in Bangkok and Surrounding Areas (URMAP)
Following the 1997 Asian Financial Crisis and the cancellation of the BERTS, a system totalling 375 kilometres (233 mi) to begin in 2001 was proposed, to be developed in three stages: 141.9 kilometres (88.2 mi) during 2001–11, 158.2 kilometres (98.3 mi) during 2012–21 and 75.3 kilometres (46.8 mi) from 2022 onwards.
Bangkok Mass Transit Master Plan (BMT)
Due to the slow progress of development following URMAP, a new plan was drafted consisting of 475.05 kilometres (295.18 mi) of rail in addition to the then-completed MRT Blue Line, the Sukhumvit and Silom BTS lines, the MRT purple line, and the Airport Rail Link to undergo rapid development during 2010–29. The plan was approved by the cabinet in 2016, and consisted of the following extensions:
- Light Green Line: North-South extension of the BTS to Saphan Mai and Kheha Samut Parkran
- Dark Green Line: West extension of the BTS to Yot Se and Bang Wa
- Blue Line: Extension of the MRT Blue Line to complete a quasi circle line with a branch to Lak Song
- Purple Line: South extension to Rat Burana is under study
- Orange Line: Running east–west Min Buri to Bang Khun Non
- Dark Red Line: Running north–southwest from Rangsit to Bang Sue to Maha Chai
- Light Red Line: running east-west from Hua Mak to Taling Chan
- Airport Rail Link: North extension to Don Mueang
The current plan was endorsed by the Commission for the Management of Land Traffic, chaired by then-Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva, on 8 February 2010. It designates eight primary routes, consisting of two commuter rail lines, an airport rail link, and five rapid transit lines, as well as four feeder lines. The routes, totalling 555.74 kilometres (345.32 mi), are to be constructed within a development period of twenty years (2010–29). They are:
|Commuter||SRT Dark Red Line||Thammasat – Rangsit - Bang Sue - Hua Lamphong - Bang Bon - Maha Chai|
|SRT Light Red Line||Sala Ya – Taling Chan – Thonburi-Siriraj, Hua Mak|
|Airport rail link||Airport Rail Link and extension||Suvarnabhumi Airport - Phaya Thai – Bang Sue – Don Mueang|
|Rapid transit||Light Green Line, extension of the BTS Sukhumvit Line||East Outer Ring Road – Khu Khot - Saphan Mai – Mo Chit – On Nut – Bearing – Kheha Samut Prakan – Bang Pu|
|Dark Green Line, extension of the BTS Silom Line||Yot Se – Saphan Taksin – Bang Wa - Taling Chan|
|Blue Line, extension of the MRT Blue Line||Bang Sue, Hua Lamphong - Tha Phra – Lak Song – Phutthamonthon Sai 4|
|Purple Line||Khlong Bang Phai – Tao Poon - Rat Burana|

|Brown Line||Nonthaburi Civic Center – Summakorn|
|Grey Line||Watcharaphon – Rama IX Bridge|
