Taweesak Taekratok, Supansa Luansak


Naresuan University was ranked 4th out of 22 Universities of Thailand by the Green Metric World University Ranking of Indonesia in 2016. In the conceptual of green university, this study aim to find out how much the transportation usage especially motorbike sub-sector release CO2 emission, to estimate travel cost patterns of students within the university and the satisfaction level of students, faculties, and employees with the incentive to follow the green transportation policy in being switched from motorbike usage into cycling.
