Pattaya plans to build more bus stops on Beach and Second roads in another attempt to bring order to baht bus chaos.

Public works chief Anuwat Thongkham said June 23 that Pattaya currently has more than 100 stops that are painted on the road, but most lack seating. As a result, people tend to just flag down a baht bus wherever they want.

He said Pattaya wants its bus stops to match those in the west, so it will spend more money to install proper stops with shelters and seats, first along Beach and Second roads. Thirty are planned for those two streets and 200 citywide, eventually.

Anuwat said the city is seeking contractors with a decision expected this month.
