Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA) will ask the Cabinet in April to approve a Bt12-billion budget to buy 2,188 buses this year, acting director Prayoon Choygeo said yesterday.



He added that the plan was also being considered by the National Economic and Social Development Council.

“We expect the council will approve it soon and will propose it to the Cabinet for approval in April this year,” he said.

The proposal follows a plan to rehabilitate the BMTA’s financial results by buying and renting new buses to serve customer needs, and using alternative energy to reduce management and energy costs, he said.
