Mr. Sanyalak said the service suspension is in compliance with the government announcement of 17 July, requiring people to delay interprovincial travel to help contain the spread of coronavirus.

Thailand’s state-run Transport Company has suspended all bus services on the northern, northeastern, eastern and southern routes, except parcel deliveries, until 2 August.

Company president Sanyalak Panwattanalikit said the move is in compliance with the government announcement of 17 July, requiring people to suspend or delay interprovincial travel to help contain the spread of coronavirus.



Those who bought tickets in advance, for trips between 21 July and 2 August, can seek refunds, or postpone their trip until the end of 2021, at ticket vending windows in Transport Company bus terminals throughout the country. People who bought the tickets with state welfare cards are not eligible for refunds, although they can postpone their trip.



Mr Sanyalak added that people, who still need to travel to other provinces for specific purposes, may opt for services from franchised buses. More information can be obtained from the call centre on 1490 around the clock. (NNT)
