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.

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.
