Overpopulation, traffic congestion and air pollution are closely related in Bangkok. Traffic increased dramatically over the past twenty years as population grew to twelve million. Reputed as one of the most polluted cities in the world, Bangkok residents have increased allergy problems, respiratory illness and other maladies. New alternative transportation systems, known as the Skytrain and Subway, are designed to cope with the problem. However, as the Bangkok Subway and Skytrain are implemented, the findings indicate that encourage increased use of the systems is very important to a project's success.
