Abstract: A key task in the co-production of smart city services is to identify the needs of stakeholders. This research provides empirical data of what services residents in the Bangkok metropolitan area would like to have implemented. A survey was conducted which revealed demands for services related to traffic congestion information, public transportation, participatory governance, public safety and the use of an electronic ID. Exploratory factor analysis was used to discover the underlying structure of the desired services. Four areas were identified: mobility convenience, support for businesses, management and monitoring of government services, and household environmental conservation.
