Pattaya officials have now banned passenger vans from parking at Bali Hai Pier and discussing the situation with baht bus operators.
Ronakit Ekasingh, Pattaya’s deputy mayor held a meeting on Monday about the traffic problems and chaos that was overwhelming the busy tourist pier. In a story earlier this week public-transport operators were caught fighting over customers.
Officials have now painted new lines to designate drop-off areas and will now patrol the pier to prevent minivans from parking there and ensure orderly conduct of the public service providers.
Local baht bus operators were also informed of the changes to some routes to the pier and told to ensure that drivers follow the rules when picking up passengers at the pier.
