The Authorities have banned non-licensed taxis from U-Tapao so most of the private companies now can't go there.

I think it's 'yellow number plate only'.

 

I guess this means meter taxis may be the only option other than shuttle bus!

Good to know....it's a long walk from the gatehouse to the terminal if the car isn't let in.

Tripadvisor cut and paste:
 

With reference to your inquiry, we would like to inform that there is no a shuttle bus from Pattaya city to Utapao Airport provided by Bangkok Airways.

 

However, we are pleased to suggest a limousine service named The Crane Company. 

 

This company has serviced a joint mini-bus form Pattaya city to Utapao Airport with a charge of THB250 per person.

 

 

 

For reservation, you could contact +66 81 377 2778. They will ask for more details of your hotel address and your flight details.

 

Presumably they go both to and from. Worth checking.

there is a van service on the side of Central Festival. It is a service provided by Air Asia to Utapao airport.  It runs 2 times a day. Cost is 250b per person.

If you are flying with Air Asia, at least to some destinations, then you can choose Central as your start/end point on their website when booking. Fare then includes bus.

As I said, 'some destinations '. Don't know why.

 

Last time I looked, I think it was available for Chiang Mai but not for Udon Thani, for example.

Maybe it has to do with flight times??

Nam is now accepting a few UTP bookings, give it a try.

 

She works with pick ups on basis of exchanged photos, not name cards showing.

Great news, I'll drop her a line. Does it still take 50 minutes to get there from central Pattaya?

EDIT : I'm talking of getting to Utapao not to be picked up there.

It's down to the colour of the number plates, plates that are yellow with black letters are registered taxis, other types of licensed vehicles have blue or green letters on a white back ground.

 

Some vans / mini buses if you look, their plates are black letters on white but if they are registered in Chonburi their numbers start with 31 or 30

 

Im no expert by any means, all of this was explained to me by Nam and I'm sure she dumbed it down a bit for the idiot falang

    • Hi Guys

      As many of you know we have been running now for 16 years and apart from one brief time when we were allowed PayPal, so could use the inbuilt donation function, we have tried to avoid asking for donations. We have certainly avoided being in anyones face about it.

      Sadly that has now changed.

      The forum currently costs around $900 a month to operate. That includes Bangkok and Philippines but PA makes up the vast majority of it. This fee covers forum hosting, image hosting, notification emails and support.

      Before anyone says "its expensive" please be aware we have tried for years to find better for cheaper - it just doesn't exist for the size we are. Also a lot of hosts wont Touch us anyway. Our current host is actually cheaper than the previous one but that brings its own problems.

      Moving on -

      I would like to stress there is NO obligation whatsoever. Also, whatever happens the forum is going no-where!

      Donators can CHOOSE to have their donation listed (probably in this thread or we can make a new one) or to remain anonymous. Likewise they can CHOOSE whether the amount is published or not.

      There is no minimum, or maximum for that matter. ANY donation will be very gratefully received. We are very aware that many members are also having it tough these days.

      We are still unable to promote/post PayPal addresses etc on the forum so would ask that anyone who would like to make a donation to PM me, or ask me here to PM you and we will sort out details via that PM.
