Improve services is a great thing to do!
How about having good cleaned not smelly toilets in the busses? Teach the steward how to keep toilet clean, like in thai aircrafts.
That will be smart! That will be 'development'.
Not sitting 12 hours at a toilet smell lower bus deck.

For many bus riding older thai people will all this modern technologic ticketing development 1 bridge to far.
