phuketgazette : "One thing I’d like to see shaped up is the traffic problem – we have too many vehicles for the current number of roads.
The lack of public transport options in Phuket has forced every household to have some form of private transport, be it a car or a motorbike. Some households have several vehicles, and this is causing our huge traffic problems. The way to reduce traffic congestion is to provide public transport.
We need a bus network and taxi fares that are affordable. If we can provide cost-effective transport, then people will use it."
