from some places you need a car to drive into bangkok, or at least to a park and ride spot to change to the BTS/MRT!!


Additional I see a problem with BTS, if really every car user would use the BTS. Now it's already horrible at some times like 6:30-9:00 for some stations. You have to wait 4-5 trains to be able to go inside (at least pre-COVID). if additional passengers would come it only would make it worse.
They should increas the Trains and other public transportation much more, before it's possible for everybody. If you life near a BTS/MRT then yes I agree it's easier to go by public.. but if you have to go by bus and have to change 2-3 times.. that's horrible (maybe less car whould improve the bus ride.. but how can you check this when there is always traffic jam...
