Nataphol said the purpose of his visit was to obtain information that can be used to enhance the quality of education in the country and providing convenient transport for students is an integral part of building an educated population.
“These are improved original BMTA buses. The newly developed vehicles are stable and powerful, and can run on both electric power and diesel. This idea may help us cover school transportation across the country. Currently we are in the process of conducting feasibility studies,” he said.
