City Hall will ask Bangkok commuters for their views on the future of the loss-ridden and under-used Bus Rapid Transit (BRT) service before making a final decision.

Bangkok governor Aswin Kwanmuang said on Friday that the Bangkok Metropolitan Administration (BMA) would let the public decide on the planned termination of the BRT service. The city administration needed 15 days to survey opinions of people whether they wanted the BRT service to continue or be terminated.

BMA would conduct the survey, starting on Tuesday, on 3,000 respondents from nine groups including BRT users, car owners, and police officers. The survey would be conducted by Kasem Pundit University and was expected to be completed by the end of this month.
