Pongsapat vows, Sukhumbhand wows

- +

Pheu Thai candidate for Bangkok governor Pongsapat Pongcharoen offered another public transport policy, while the Democrat's MR Sukhumbhand Paribatra integrated an unusual technological trick into his campaign as their election rivalry continues to simmer. 

Pol Gen Pongsapat wrote on his Facebook page on Monday that he plans to develop ticketing cards that can be used for multiple public transportation similar to London's "Oyster Card", used by about 80% of people in England's capital to access the underground, buses and trains.

He said the new card will function like an electronic card currently issued by both the BTS skytrain and the MRT subway train. This will make travelling by means of public transport much more convenient, he added.
