A comparison of public transport accessibility levels in the peak travel time and the off-peak travel time in Bang Yai district, Nonthaburi province is the application of the geographic information system and the analysis of public transport accessibility levels, which is the tool to measure public transport accessibility levels. The used data were 1) the primary information of the parking points of public transport accessibility levels and 2) frequency rate of the public transportation in Bang Yai district, such as minibuses, buses, and the BTS purple line in both peak and off-peak times. The analysis aimed to find public transport accessibility levels. It was found that there are 25 out of 301 parking points in Bang Yai district with higher public transport accessibility levels in rush hour than in non-rush hour. All of them are located in the community areas and near buildings along the Karnchanaphisek road. Strikingly, Bang Yai sub-district is the only sub-district that has no public transportation at all since most areas in Bang Yai sub-district are rural and agricultural areas.
