Abstract

Urban mass rapid transit-oriented development is increasing in developing Asian megacities. However, there are concerns about whether transit-oriented development attracts and allows transit users to live nearby. This study aims to examine the relationship between quality of life (QOL) and bid rent among socioeconomic groups living near rapid transit stations in Bangkok. The levels of various residential QOL indicators were classified into access, amenity, and safety elements. These indicators and their values by socioeconomic groups were examined in station and no-station areas using data from a questionnaire survey of local residents in Bangkok. The QOL indexes and bids for rent were estimated by socioeconomic group and by residential location. The results showed that low-income residents, who most frequently use mass transit, have higher QOL in station areas than in no-station areas, and high-income residents, who rely more on cars, have the highest bid rent.
