BANGKOK – The Ministry of Transport is looking to provide facilities in public transport systems for elderly persons and those with disabilities.

Transport Minister Arkhom Termpittayapaisith presided over a seminar designed to study the planned setting up of facilities for elderly persons and those with disabilities in order to promote their better access to the public transportation systems.
