The Transport Ministry urges the Office of Transport and Traffic Policy and Planning (OTP) to expedite the study of City Pass system in Thailand for transport ticketing convenience.
The Transport Minister, Mr. Santi Promphat (สันติ พร้อมพัฒน์), says the OTP has received budget from the Asian Development Bank (ADB) to study the City Pass system. He says the progress of the study will be seen in the next two months especially in terms of income management.
Mr. Santi says if the country has a bus service which takes passengers from their residence to electric train stations, people will use more public transportation and the country will save about 200 billion to 300 billion baht of oil imports a year.
