There are plenty of Motorbike Taxis in Bangkok and you can find them everywhere. There are points in certain places, where several Motorbike taxis waiting for customers, or where a passenger can queue up until the next free Motorbike Taxi is available. Many Thai people use the Motorbike Taxi to drive certain (short) distances, for example, the way from home to the nearest BTS station to save a walk.
Cheap Public Transport
A ride with a Motorbike Taxi is quite cheap, the fare is negotiated before the trip and paid at the destination.
Fast Public Transport
On the roads there is a lot of traffic and at certain times according to traffic jams, with the car, bus or Tuk Tuk you get then only slowly to your destination. The Motorbike Taxis have an advantage, they also get zick zack through between the stationary cars and this not only happens as an exception, but it is the rule. A ride on a Motorbike Taxi is not something that does not like this form of abbreviation. This driving style has a risk of being hurt, you should be aware of the risk.
Wearing a helmet is duty
There is a duty to wear helmet on Motorbikes in Bangkok, even if you see many Motorbike Taxis on the streets where the passengers do not wear a helmet, the drivers usually do it. Not every Motorbike Taxi driver has a helmet for the passenger, you should only go for a ride with a Motorbike Taxi, if there is a helmet available.
