City embarks on Phase 2 of Bangkok Mass Transit plan
The Department of Rail Transport (DRT) and the Japan International Cooperation Agency (JICA) are in talks on Phase 2 of Bangkok’s Mass Rapid Transit Master Plan (M-MAP2), DRT director-general Kittiphan Panchan announced on Tuesday.
M-Map2 covers connectivity of the Green, Red, Blue, Purple, Orange lines as well as the Pink and Yellow monorail services and the Airport Rail Link.
The latest talks between the DRT and its collaborator JICA focus on connectivity of the network and a rail travel demand forecast system.
The study aims to alleviate traffic jams in the city centre by boosting efficiency of the rail mass transit system in metropolitan Bangkok.
