Thai Firm Plans Bus Services in Myanmar

Thailand-based passenger bus operator Nakhonchai Air Co is planning to launch domestic bus services in Myanmar as early as next year, according to Thai media reports.
The firm is in talks with officials from Myanmar and assessing regulations on public transport in the recently-opened Southeast Asian nation, Nakhonchai Air’s managing director Krueawal Wongrakmit told the Bangkok Post.
The company could start offering its services next year or in 2015, making it the first first Thai firm to operate bus lines outside of Thailand, she said.
Nakhonchai is also looking for similar opportunities in Cambodia.
Nakhonchai runs air-conditioned bus lines from Bangkok to the northern, northeastern and eastern regions of Thailand, and several direct routes linking the three regions, with a fleet of 300 buses.
However, Nakhonchai is not planning to run inter-country bus services as Thailand’s state-owned Transport Co already runs such services from Bangkok to Laos and Cambodia.
