Pattaya City has introduced an air-conditioned bus service with scheduled stops along designated routes. Designed to help tourists get around the resort city, the Pattaya beach bus service consists of three lines - Green, Red and Yellow. These cover the main streets of Pattaya, Naklua and Jomtien.

Each line has been assigned a different colour to make it easier for passengers to identify the routes. Bus stops are also colour coded and numbered so passengers know where to board and disembark.

The modern microbuses seat thirty people in air-conditioned comfort. The bus bodies sport bright and breezy designs.

Each line has its own fixed clockwise and counter-clockwise routes, making a total of six routes, served by three buses per route from 6.00 am to 2.00 am the following day.

Routes

Green Line: Big C - South Pattaya Road - Pattaya 2 Road (reverse route = Beach Road) - Dolphin Roundabout - Naklua Road - Soi Potisan - Sukhumvit Road (back to Big C).

Yellow Line: Big C - Sukhumvit Road - Thepprasit Road - Thappraya Road over the hill - Pattaya 3 Road - North Pattaya Road - Dolphin Roundabout - North Pattaya Road - Sukhumvit Road (back to Big C).

A 30-baht one-way ticket can be used on any of the routes. Visitors will also be able to purchase one-day passes at 90 baht, three-day passes at 180 baht, and one-month passes for 900 baht.
