- +

Transport Minister Chadchat Sittipunt has vowed to speed up efforts to improve transport facilities for the disabled. 

The ministry's six organisations _ the Bangkok Mass Transit Authority (BMTA), Airports of Thailand (AoT), the Transport Company, the Marine Department, the State Railway of Thailand (SRT) and the Mass Rapid Transit Authority of Thailand (MRTA) _ will develop public transport facilities to make them more suitable for disabled passengers.

Lifts, toilets and pavements for the disabled at Don Mueang airport, bus terminals, train stations and skytrain stations must be improved as quickly as possible, Mr Chadchat said.
