City Bus: approx. 50 lines which are in the most
heavies corridor (approx. 30% of the total bus lines); and
Elevated Ramps bringing traffic to the Second
Stage Expressway, Don Muang Tollway and
Phahonyothin Road.

Elevated Entrance and Exit
It is concluded that the access to Bangkok Terminal will be done by 3 levels: underground, on ground, and above ground.

It is worth noting that, as a focal point of various transport systems, daily terminal users at the Bangkok Terminal are expected to be over 300,000 people in the first year of operation (2004).

In the future, this area will be a transfer point of the international travel by the high speed train. This terminal will act as a gateway to serve the international development via a region transport network. Indeed, it is a regional infrastructure project to welcome the new millennium.
