The Transport Ministry will seek cabinet approval for the purchase of 3,183 new buses fuelled by natural gas next week. 

The ministry claims the deal would enable the Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA), which runs an accumulated loss of 70 billion baht, to turn in a 260 million baht profit for the first time in 2014.
