Several west-end bar crawlers used to jump on it to head into the guts of the city for more beer and skittles on Sampan. I also recall some inner-loopers using it to do their east-end shopping at Big C Nittayo.

pooclover's translation from the manager online link details the "Big C - cross town - Airport" route is almost the same as before.

New route?
A picture in the manager online article suggests a "Sam Phrao - cross town - Ban Lueam" route. Maybe that's a new or proposed route? From their old FB page, they had a "north - cross town - south" route.

Looks like using a downtown bus change would get you to/from most of the extremities.

As for the schedule and frequency, the west-enders would check it's location on the app and order a last drink when the bus left the airport. If they didn't go to the bathroom, they had enough time to finish the beer and pay the bill before it passed Chris's. If they went for a piss, they'd miss the bus and wait for the next one. Thirty minutes rings a bell.

could have sworn I was an article on it months ago that showed the route by Big C actually going further east for about 4km and doing a U-Turn near the Labor Court on Rte 22.. My recollection is that it also showed a route on the Ring Road east side to west side too...

dug through the City website but as of yet can't find anything on it about the new bus routes. It does have some decent info (make sure your browser translates to English) particularly in the News and Events, Press Releases
