Thailand cabinet advised to retain free buses and trains

Recently the National Economic and Social Development Board suggested that the measures on free electricity and water should be lifted but those on free public transportation should be extended due to increasing fuel prices. Siam Daily News
Many countries subsidize transport fuels to make sure employees can get to work. In Bangkok, Thailand they have made over 70 bus routes and 300 3rd class train tickets fare-free. This not only helps people get to work, but reduces congestion and pollution at the same time.
