Bus Companies to Cut Services Amid Rising Diesel Prices

Interprovincial bus operators have said they will limit or cease services along specific routes due to rising fuel costs.

Pichet Jiamburaset, president of the Thai Bus Business Association, said private operators can no longer cope with increased expenses associated with high diesel prices. The cost of diesel currently stands at 34 baht per liter, up from 27 baht in 2017.
