He added that the scheme will be applied to all types of public transport, namely buses, taxis, motorbike taxis, vans, Skytrain, Metro and trains.
Under the “RaoChana” scheme, the self-employed, farmers and welfare cardholders whose savings do not exceed Bt500,000 will receive two monthly payments of Bt3,500 each via the Pao Tang smartphone app. This is part of the government’s bid to ease people’s financial burdens during the Covid-19 crisis.
