New airport bus service

BANGKOK, 2 June 2017: A new bus service launched, Thursday, between Suvarnabhumi Airport and Khao San Road and Sanam Luang should make it more convenient for backpackers to transfer from the airport to their favourite downtown haunt.

Operated by Bangkok Mass Transit Authority, the S1 Line operates with eight Euro 2 buses from 0600 to 2000. The fare is THB60 one-way.

The bus will depart from Suvarnabhumi airport passenger terminal’s ground floor Gate 7 every 30 minutes.
