The 6th edition of the TRAS 2019 is co-organised by Mahidol University and the Thai Railway Engineering Association and will take place in Bangkok, Thailand on 21-22 November 2019.

The theme of the 6th edition of TRAS 2019 is ‘Urban Rail Transit’. The 2-day event will attract both rail academia and industry from Thailand.
