Abstract

In many mega-cities in developing countries, physical distribution data are lacked and mobility gap between household income levels becomes more and more significant. This study, therefore, aims (1) to conduct physical distribution survey in Metro-Manila and (2) to analyze mobility gap by household income levels in Bangkok metropolitan region.
