Phichit Akrathit said after a ministerial level crisis meeting on the issue that the matter of GPS and microbuses would likely be left with transport authorities to sort out, reports Daily News.

It was felt that it was a civil matter.

All minivans are expected to be fitted with GPS devices by the end of March and Phichit felt this was something that can be enforced by the national transport company. They should also oversee the replacement of minivans with microbuses as well, he said.

This refers to vans plying routes out of Bangkok to upcountry provinces.
