Public transportation services operate a crucial part for people who are powerless to drive, for instance, people who don't have personal vehicles, people are in pregnancy, children, disabilities, and senior citizens can reach their destinations in every day with cheap fares. There are many kinds of transit choices for public transportation systems include Bus, Train, Metropolitan Rapid Transit (MRT), High-Speed Rail (HSR), Bus Rapid Transit (BRT), Taxi, Minibus, and so on. Public transportation systems also can help to reduce health risk determinants like air pollution and motor vehicle crashes. This research paper aims to examine how the supply chain relationship impacts public transportation quality in Taichung city, Taiwan and Chiang Mai city, Thailand and analyses the construction of supply chain relationship on quality cooperation for public transportation in Taichung city, Taiwan and Chiang Mai city, Thailand. Moreover, develop the theoretical model and figure out the empirical test (the structural equation modelling). Therefore the confirmatory factor analysis (CFA) approach is taken for this estimation.
