Songthaew Share Taxi
Bangkok uses a lot of different means of public transport and each has its advantages and disadvantages. Songthaew collective taxis are rather unconventional, they are converted pick-up trucks, whose cargo area is covered. On the back there are two benches on the side. The Songthaew collective taxis drive fixed routes, but unlike a public bus, the Songthaew shared taxis do not stop at fixed stations, but virtually wherever you want to get in and out.
Cheap Public Transport
A ride on a Songthaew Taxis is quite cheap, the fare is negotiated and paid before the trip.
The advantage of being able to get off at any point is a disadvantage at the same time, because new passengers can always be added. If you drive certain routes regularly, or if you are traveling in small groups, a Songthaew Taxi is an perfect means of public transport.
