As in the picture, the screen level is in the good eye level, the wheelchair user can use comfortably, and I do believe that ‘The screen height and buttons’ can be used comfortably by rest –well done!Read More »
Had heard from the BTS executives that wheelchair ramp is now available at every BTS station. It is the first time in quite a while that I have taken a BTS. Today, I took the ride from Sukumvit > Siam > Surasak station and I am soo o oooo impressed. The service is well executed. The heads of each station even come to supervise the process.Read More »
A 360° view captured from BTS Wat Phra Sri Mahathat Station’s skywalk where part of them are stairs in case you all haven’t seen it yet. ‘The walkway only provides stairs’ issue would not had happened if there was a prior-construction discussion with the Association of People with Disabilities.Read More »

The footpath is too narrow with other obstacles.Read More »

Both images took place in a different time scale of 30 years.

Yet, from the past till present time, most PWDs remain unable to go out of home conveniently, to go to school and hospital, to work and make a living individually. This is a living, catastrophic summary of the basic human rights of PWDs in Thailand. What else could be worse?Read More »
Thailand is known for its warm service and kindness that builds great impression for any visitors around the world. And the commuter train service is simply one of them. I’ve been using the commuter train services intensely during the last 6 years. I can firmly assure you its gradual improvement of services in many areas. And I’m not alone.

One of our fellow networks has sent this devastating scene to me when he explored the whole area of MRT Bang O station, a newly-built station recently opened for service. I personally don’t blame the labour workers who, after all, follow the order of their boss. And their boss follows the order of their superior up further, and the superior to the more superior.Read More »
According to the image, I have just received the latest news from our associate group. I am glad that “at least” we have some positive news. Anyway, I told them not to be happy yet. We have to wait until it’s all done, make a full trial and proceed with the follow up work closely. This topic will be presented to the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) and the Transport Minister as information of problem solving and protection for the entire system.Read More »
