Yes, both the red and white buses run up and down Soi 94. Walk to the Petchkasem end of Soi 94 and the green bus runs from the airport to Khao Takiab. If you want more specifics, tell us where you want go. :)

There is a change of route for the white Songthaews. I'm a regular at the Baan Kun Por food court and i usually catch a white Songthaew from there to the intersection of 94 and Petchasem. Now the Songthaews are turning right down 94 and into CP Alley 2 and coming out at Soi 102. Turning left out of 102 into Petchasem rd,picking up passengers at Bluport.

Thanks in anticipation.

the operator of the white baht-bus (with the red bonnet) running soi94 has to learn the business:
- i could not find any announcements of the route (in english) this bus runs ?
- one time i catched on of this white/red bus from soi94 along petchkasem-rd to huahin city (soi61)
but trying to go back the same route, i could not see the next white/red bus to soi94 for more than 1,5 hours
(waiting on the corner soi61/petchkasem-rd)
- so the operator of this baht-bus should not wounder why so few people are driving with ....
- very bad service :guns: :guns: :guns:

===

and most of the time,
the green baht-bus are crowded too much to use (going south to khao takiab)

why the green baht-bus do not double the running cars ?

====
:idea:
maybe the huahinforum board could be able to serve
english maps of the baht-bus routes with time tables ?

- this would be helpful to many people
- and maybe help the baht-bus operators to run there business.
:idea:
take it easy

Those green baht-buses are an accident waiting to happen during high-season...

Because in low season they can be virtually empty.

Would anyone be able to share exactly where the surround city Songthaew stops at which is near the night market? Would like to book a hotel/hostel which is near the pick up location. Does the Songthaew stops at specific location or does one flag one at any point along the road?
