Let public buses show their potentials


About Talk

Since the arrival of the skytrain and metro, Bangkok people are changing the way of how they commute. Although the bus system is covering significantly more routes than the BTS and MRT combined, it is still a worry that the number of the bus users is declining over the recent years. Nevertheless, the rail system alone will not be able to handle the growing numbers of passengers. “Van”, Waritthorn Suksabai who values travelling by bus, sees this as an opportunity and wants to make an improvement on this. He started small by redesigning bus stops and this proves to be significant. His ideology is to prove to everyone that this form of public transport is not the lowest kind in the society and it is actually for everyone.
