Swampy To Jomtien Bus

Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Does anybody know if Roong Reung have resumed their bus service from Swampy airport to Jomtien? I'm coming down from Chiang Mai next week and in the past have always used this bus service as I stay at VT1. Their website says service stopped in April but Thais aren't very good at keeping websites up to date.

 

If bus not possible, can somebody recommend the name, price, phone no. of a reliable taxi driver.

 

Thanks for any assistance.

Ban Chang taxi is 1000bht all in Swampy to Patts. They meet and greet at Gate 3 with your name on sign. 

Google is your friend, they are always dependable and on time.

No need to bother, I can confirm the service is not in operation still. When it starts uo again I'll add it to this thread.

Passed through Suv. multiple times.

Just not enough passengers to fill big buses to Jomtien.

Guys, thanks for all your help with the taxi contacts, much appreciated... always better using a recommendation rather than a random number from Google.

 

Cheers, Forza...

I just noticed that the bus service from Suvarnabhumi Airport is resuming on 22nd Aug. Limited service, just 3 buses a day going to North Pattaya... https://airportpattayabus.com/from-suvarnabhumi-airport/

Where will their passengers come from? Anyone on an incoming flight gets a chartered bus to their place of quarantine.

When I have business in Bangkok I used to get the bus to the airport then hop the skytrain into town.

Very handy & very quick.

Interesting.  Looks like a hybrid of the Bell Travel Service to Pattaya Nua, and the "official" bus from Suvarnabhumi to Jomtien (Foodland parking lot.)

 

The online booking system looks like the old Bell Travel site.  It even has "Bell Travel Service" and the red bell logo in the title tab, and "Pattaya City" is the only option in the drop down menu.

 

However, if you continue through the booking process, from where the "Trip details" say "Departure from: Suvarnabhumi Airport To Pattaya City", on the next screen, the "Trip details" now say "Drop-off location:  Thappraya Bus Office" and the "Select hotel" button no longer lists the destinations of the Bell Travel minivans.  It only offers the Thappraya Bus Office.

There are many fly to U Tapao, AA same aren't there?

I suppose there must be a demand for a Swampy bus or they would not be running them.
