"We won't go home, we can't afford that" - bus fares almost double because of social distancing regulations

Many Thais took to social media after a man posted about his journey on a bus from Pattaya to Nong Khai in the north east.

 

He said that his normal fare was 500 baht but he had been charged 910 baht because spaces had to be left empty on the seats. 

 

He said that this was not a big deal for him but it would be problematic for many others and he called on the government to do something.

 

Comment was rife with plenty of Netizens complaining about the government's new rules.

 

Many said they just wouldn't go back to their hometowns at those prices while others shared similar experiences.

The largest joke. Marks on the platform to keep people apart but jammed into the train carriages like sardines.

The BTS I travelled on yesterday had big crosses on every other seat and were not occupied. It was a pretty new carriage, didn't even have station maps on the walls, so maybe more seat crosses are on the way?
