So all in all, I'm quite happy to keep visiting Pattaya exactly as it is.

That's it in a nutshell. Luckily, however, there's no hope that any of that will happen anytime soon. ;)

The only new Bus stops I have seen are on Pattaya Beach Rd., nothing here in Jomtien or going to Pattaya.

I was on Pattaya Beach Road both Thursday morning and Friday evening. From my own observations, the baht buses were paying no attention to bus stops or new rules. Everything was as usual - baht buses stopping anywhere they want.

If I'm thinking of the right place, haven't the baht buses been queuing up there anyway - for years?

This evening about 5 pm I took notice of the baht buses on 2nd rd. Either they were completely full or almost empty. It seemed many of the passengers were being picked up at intersection with South Pattaya Rd. Only saw one or two designated stops after that up to The Avenue/Villa Market.

What must a person arriving from outer space think when they get to Pattaya?
A new huge city with no,public transport. So they put thousands of converted trucks on the road, run them around the city with no signs whatever on them to say where they are going ....!
Then some bright spark, after 25+ years says we need routes, so what do they do?
They put stickers on the "buses" which are so small you cannot read them until the speeding bus is less than fifty metres away and cannot be read at all at night because they are unlit

I conducted an inventory on Pattaya Tai. There are only four large "bus stop" signs installed from Sukhumvit Road to Third Road, a long distance that sometimes takes GB 10 minutes by car! So put on your hiking boots when you set out to find a "bus stop".
