Pattaya : Transportation
Travelling around Pattaya is most convenient by minibuses (songthaews) that continually ply the Beach Road and Pattaya 2 Road in counterclockwise circuits. There are also minibuses running to Naklua and Jomtien areas. Fares are from 10-30 baht depending on the distance. Just hop in and pay the fare when you get off.

Pattaya Beach Bus

Designed to help tourists get around the city, the Pattaya Beach Bus service consists of three lines – Green, Red and Yellow, covering the main streets of Pattaya, Naklua and Jomtien.

Pattaya BusesEach line has been assigned a different colour to make it easier for passengers to identify the routes. Bus stops are also colour coded and numbered so passengers know where to board and disembark.

There are fixed clockwise and counter-clockwise routes for each line, served by three buses per route from 06.00 to 02.00 hours the following day. All buses are air-conditioned and contain 34 seats.

A 30-baht one-way ticket can be used on any of the routes. Visitors will also be able to purchase one-day passes at 90 baht, three-day passes at 180 baht, and one month passes at 900 baht. The passes are available at most hotels and major supermarkets (Tesco Lotus, Carrefour, Big C, etc.).

For those who wish to be independent and explore Pattaya's surrounding countryside and beaches at leisure, there are many vehicle rental places offering various types of motorcycles, jeeps and cars. Visitors are advised to shop around and consult local tourism publications as each company offers different prices and conditions.

Anyway, renting a car from leading car rental companies is strongly advised as they provide international standards of service as well as information and maps of tourist attractions.
