Modal shift transportation trend in Thailand is mainly driven by traffic congestion, costs and especially environmental issues concerning with GHG emissions. Thailand’s transportation both freight and passenger are dominated by road transportation causing large amount of GHG emissions. However, as Thai government plan to reduce GHG emissions, they saw the potential of reducing emissions from transportation sector by adopting modal shift transportation trend which shifts the mode from road to railway and maritime in order to meet GHG emissions reduction target. Thus, there will be various public transportation infrastructure projects which offer opportunities for key stakeholders both Thai and international to participate in.
