Buses are ubiquitous in Bangkok. The urban network has long been built around the bus network. Over time, bus lines are modernized.

Buses are also the main means of transport for inter-city travel. If private companies generally offer quality services, public buses are quite old.
Vans are very present in the city. They travel long distances. They stop at the customer’s request. Vans are widely used for intercity travel. They have the main advantages of being fast. The main problem with vans is the lack of space and the lack of comfort.
