Dr. Mondhon Sanguansermsri, President of University of Phayao said, "University of Phayao has been a part of Sustainable University Network of Thailand and attending to UI Green Metric World University Ranking. With an area of over 2,135 acres and a total student population of over 20,000, University of Phayao has many environmental campaigns in the campus such as stop using EPS foam as food containers, stop using motorcycles and take free public NGV bus instead etc. Having ofo bikes here for our students and staff is another strategy to preserve environment, reduce accidents, and it's also convenient, safe, eco-friendly and good for health."
