a baht bus system like Pattaya!!!!
PHUKET: Patong will soon have a network of public vehicles that will circulate at regular intervals, charging a reasonable fee for a ride, if the townâ€™s new mayor has her way.
In an exclusive interview with the Phuket Gazette today, Mayor Chalermluck Kebsab and an associate outlined the system that they would like to see replace taxi ranks in the popular beach town.
â€œWith the taxi booths gone, we have the opportunity to create a system of public transportation in Patong,â€ Ms Chalermluck said, adding that the displaced drivers could find jobs in the new system.
â€œWe are envisioning public vehicles that circulate 24 hours a day on a fixed route,â€ said the associate who devised the plan, but asked not to be named.
â€œThe cost would be between 20 and 50 baht, but that needs to be discussed with the Phuket Land Transport Office and the Governorâ€™s Office, as well as tut-tuk and taxi representatives,â€ said Ms Chalermluck.
â€œThe goal is to agree on a price that covers operating costs and is reasonable for users, both tourists and local people."
