PHUKET: In one of her last acts as Mayor of Patong before heading for the polls on Mar 28, Chalermluck Kebsup last week announced a new electric bus service for Patong that is hoped to launch before the end of the year.


That potentially ground-breaking development was unveiled on Jan 26 with the announcement that Prince of Songkla University (PSU) Phuket campus had signed a memorandum of Understanding (MoU) with Patong Municipality and several private companies to assist in the research and development of an electric bus service to operate within Patong, among other projects that are expected to generate some B200 billion for the island’s economy within five years of being launched.


The MoU was signed at the PSU Phuket campus in Kathu. Present as signatories were PSU Phuket Campus Vice Chancellor Assoc Prof Dr Phan Tongchumnum and Patong Mayor Chalermluck Kebsup.

I sincerely hope that Madam Mayor is more accurate with predicting the timeline on this project than she has been with her forecasts on the completion of the utter shambles on Patong beach road
