If the rise is approved on Tuesday, a ride on creamandred buses will cost Bt8.5, up from Bt7, and a ride on the creamandblue buses will cost Bt10, up from Bt8.5. Creamandblue buses are considered to be of a better standard.
For the airconditioned buses, fares are calculated based on distance travelled. Currently, their fares are between Bt14 and Bt26. Following the rise, a ride on one of these buses will cost between Bt15 and Bt27.
Songsak says the hike applies to Bangkok Mass Transit Authority and concessionaires' buses.
