According to passenger log information on April 15th, more than 99,995 individuals traveled round trip via public buses and vans with more than 6,689 trips in total

Atthawit further added that he issued an order following the Ministry of Transport policy to station masters of the Transport Company across Thailand to facilitate travelers with comfort, convenience, safety, and convergence.

To meet the demand for the use of public transportation to Bangkok, additional buses and vans were prepared, and all vehicles and drivers were inspected before providing their services, according to Atthawit.

For inbound travel, the Transport Company buses would stop at Krung Thep Aphiwat Central Terminal first before heading to the Bangkok Bus Terminal as a final destination.
