The objective of the NAMA is to improve intermodal connectivity in Thai cities as well as the overall public transportation system.
Activities: (2016 - 2026)
The NAMA focuses on improving feeder modes to the urban rail network in Bangkok, which is undergoing expansion. Other cities in Thailand will then also propose and implement similar measures, building on the lessons from Bangkok and enabled by the national policy.
- consolidation of the bus services
- improvement of public transport hubs
- bus prioritization
- introduction of more energy-efficienct buses
- improvement of conditions for cycling and walking (non-motorised transport).
The NAMA provides a viable alternative to private transport and addresses the motorisation trend. It also focuses on allocating finance, creating institutional change and develop policies for Non-Motorized Transport (NMT) and bus. It intends to provide a consistent and integrated framework for urban transport policies and a national policy framework to support cities.
The Working Group for developing the NAMA proposal held its first meeting on 14 January 2015.
