Phuket public transport goes Paiboon pink

September 15, 2009


PHUKET CITY: Phuket Provincial Administration Organization President Paiboon Upatising was ‘tickled pink’ to present a new fleet of buses to the media today.

The new 16-million-baht fleet is painted bright pink – Mr Paiboon’s campaign color.

Eight of the 16 new songtaew (two-row) buses started services today, and will be joined by the remaining eight in two months.

The new buses, which will be free for students and cost 10 baht a ride for everyone else, will serve two routes criss-crossing the city.

The first route runs from the Tesco Lotus intersection to the Micro Bus Station in Tambon Wichit.

The second runs from the Supercheap discount store on Thepkrasattri Road in Tambon Rassada to the market near Phuket Villa 3 and Wichit Municipality offices on Chao Fa East Road.

Mr Paiboon returned to work last week after being cleared of vote-buying charges by the Appeals Court in Bangkok.
