  A close scrape...

Going for a spin on Theprassit Road

motorcycle accidentI saw an amazing incident last night on the way to Walking Street.

I was standing on the back of the Baht Bus and we'd stopped to pick up some passengers, just past the junction with Theprassit road, when I heard a scraping noise. I looked round and there was a motorcycle coming up fast in the outside lane, only it was on it's side with no driver.

I looked back and there was a Thai boy lying in the middle of the road. He soon got up and limped to the side of the road and sat down. He was wearing a T-shirt and Jeans, no helmet.

He sat down for 10 seconds and then limped after his bike. I don't know what happened to his bike, I couldn't see it, when we moved off.

He was very lucky but he won't learn from this.

Pattaya's baht buses have reorganised themselves into 4 routes as outlines on the following map. The map seems to introduce more questions than answers though, such as what about routes 1,2,3. Or is there a service on 2nd Road? And surely the green route will be take ages with some massively long detours included in the route.

The change that is most talked about on Pattaya forums is that the central north road run is now on 3rd Road rather than SOi Buakhao.

The trucks now sport prominent route numbers on the front roof panel.

new routes

 

Update: Postponed

28th December 2016

It is reported on Pattaya forums that the Baht bus reorganisation of routes will not be enforced by the council until February 1st 2017. The delays seems down to marking or building bus stopping points and maybe parking areas for buses.

Update: 10 Baht flat fare

31st December 2016. See  article from pattayamail.com

Pattaya's baht buses were ordered to starting working only set routes and charge all passengers 10 baht each, this a price reduction as longer journeys were previously 20 Baht.

Col. Somsak Thangdamrongtham, deputy chief of staff for the 14th Military Circle, announced Dec. 16 that four routes have been set and the fare on any of them will be 10 baht. The order went into effect on Dec. 24.

Tawat Puakboonak, chairman of the Pattaya Baht Bus Cooperative, said the formalized route system won't have a major impact other than on the Beach-Second roads loop. He also said banning private, chartered trips to off-route hotels and other locations will also impact business and needs further study.
