Speaking to The Phuket News, Ms Monrudee said, “We are still looking to go ahead with our plan to introduce free bus shuttle services which will run from Phuket International Airport to Phuket Town, Patong and Karon.
“However, finer details such as times and exact routes have not yet been set.
“I know that limousine, meter taxi and an existing bus service are already available from the airport, but the free shuttle bus will give visitors to the airport another transport option.”
Meanwhile, Nikorn Phetcharat the manager of the existing Phuket Airport Bus Express told The Phuket News, “We now only run our service to either Patong or Kata and Karon. However, both of these routes have lost money in the two to three years we have been in operation.
“We stopped the Phuket International Airport to Phuket Town route as it was not worth our while operating it. And we don̕t have any plans to introduce a route from the Airport to Sapan Hin, Chalong or Rawai because it is not worth us investing in.”
