Student has spent two years mapping Bangkok’s bus routes


If you have been searching for a route map for the busses in Bangkok, up till today you would have ended up empty handed. An 18 year old boy Somwasin Udinpol has spent the last 2 years mapping the different busses in Bangkok.

According to online magazine Coconuts Bangkok, Somwasin has been inspired by seeing tourists waiting for a cancelled bus but hopes that his map will help both locals and tourists.

“Buses are like Bangkok’s blood vessels. They spread across the city and take you into the small sois. If people got on one bus, it could help ease the traffic issues a lot,” Somwasin said.

He added that Bangkok Mass Transit Authority told him that his map contains good information and is easy to understand.

Somwasin’s self-drawn map has been spotted at Victory Monument, but there are still no comments from the transportation officials.
