PHUKET: The Phuket Provincial Administrative Organisation will replace its famous Pho Torng pink song taew, small public buses which have faithfully served the public for decades, with 24 electric buses, starting from Oct 1.

 

The plan is part of its drive to make the city more environmentally friendly. The Pho Torng buses have been in service since 1947, and replaced rickshaws.

 

Rawat Areerob, chairman of Phuket PAO, yesterday (Apr 17) said an auction will be held for the private sector to invest in the electric buses.

It's not strictly true as the pink buses replaced the original buses while I was in Phuket....and I wasn't even born in 1947!
