This study aims at investigation the potential impacts of a public truck terminal implementation along with truck ban policy adaptation in Khon Kaen City, Thailand. A four-step model is developed and used for examining traffic condition changes due to the terminal relocation. Three different terminal locations are set. Truck traffic of each scenario are estimated and converted to total network cost, and then compared with the base-case scenario. The most suitable truck terminal location is suggested. Also, several concerns regarding the public truck terminal and truck ban policy in the study area are given.
