Buses to be reduced on Ramkhamhaeng

There will be fewer old, decrepit city buses plying Ramkhamhaeng Road as Bangkok moves to ease traffic congestion during rush hours.

Deputy Governor Pol Maj General Jirapat Phumjit, who oversees traffic regulations, said on Thursday the Bangkok Mass Transit Authority had been told to determine which buses were carrying the fewest passengers.


The idea was proposed at a Tuesday meeting of a committee tasked with easing traffic jams on one of Bangkok’s busiest thoroughfares, currently more congested due to the ongoing construction of the Mass Rapid Transit Authority Orange Line.


Also proposed at the meeting were more Park & Ride facilities at shopping mall parking lots where motorists could leave their cars and board shuttle buses to Ramkhamhaeng University, Rajamangala Stadium, the Airport Link station on Ramkhamhaeng and Ban Thap Chang railway station.


The Park & Ride at the Paseo Mall on adjacent Lat Krabang Road has proved a success.


Another such facility could be situated at the Lotus Min Buri Mall on Suwinthawong Road, which has access to the Lat Krabang Airport Link station.

Great plan.


There are still a lot of passengers so when the number of busses are cut, how will they get to their destinations and return?

Depends of course on how full the buses were to start with, if totally full.. bad plan. If not full good plan as they can wait longer but get more people in a bus. (just assuming here all lines will still ride just less frequent).


My assumption is that the buses were not full to start with.. if that assumption is wrong then the plan is wrong.
