Great value if fits in with departure arrival times...

There is a bus every 30 minutes

And the bus (same company) from North Pattaya to Ekkamai (and back, of course) has gone up massively, from 108 thb to 119 thb.  Still incredibly good value for a "safe" trip to Bangkok when compared to the vans.

I agree...I used that service to and from Ekkami in March this year - pretty sure it was 109 Baht but that's too pedantic to be of concern. Careful driving and on time both ways despite the BKK traffic - well done! 👍

 

What was amusing, was that the motorcycle taxi from Soi Lengkee to the Bus station was 80 Baht going (at 5AM he was bored and willing to haggle) and 100 Baht returning (3PM and there were many potential customers and I was tired)  Not a big deal, but amusing considering the relative distance.  🙄

 

But however do they work out such an odd price? 109 or 119 Baht....why not 100 or 110 or 120? Just curious really.

I believe it has something to do with psychology, if it is a round number 100,110,120 it is expensive, but if it is 99,109,119 it's considered cheap !

Rumours are there that the bus station is to be relocated sooner then later, as it has become too successful.  In and out moving buses hampering the traffic on already busy Thappraya road..

Well I hope it’s only a rumour, it’s a good safe , very cheap service and saying they disrupt traffic is a bit of a laugh considering the traffic problems in Pattaya.

By the way, I usually take a taxi from a company that has a good reputation. On the last ride, I got to the airport feeling sick. From Jomtien to half way ,he looked at his phone, then the last half drove about 60 km an hour ! I did speak to him, I did ask, only when I got a bit angry he decided to drive like a snail! Two hours of misery. Think I’ll stick to the bus.
