Abstract

This paper reviews transport policy, implementation and its impact in Bangkok. Bangkok has not done any special measures in its transportation system. Many ambitious policies have been planned like the exclusive bus lane and the automatic location system for buses. However, they have only reached the experimental level and have not reached full implementation because of financial constraints and political conflicts. Only the ring road, expressway, overpass, underpass, truck ban, BTS and MRT have been successfully implemented.
