Bangkok, Thailand, has an extensive water transport system serving passengers crossing or travelling along the Chao Phraya River as well as certain canals. [1]

In April 2014, the BMA initiated a trial service of passenger boats along Phasi Charoen Canal. The BMA is also considering developing passenger boat services along twenty-eight other canals following the six-month test run. [3]
