Manager reported that a minivan service from Bangkok to Hua Hin was closing down at the end of the month.
“June and James Transport” posted their reasons on Facebook principally blaming the military government or NCPO (National Council for Peace and Order) of Prayut Chan-Ocha. But reviews from patrons showed a different side to the story – they said the service was terrible. The post with a RIP hashtag said that ever since the vans’ starting point was relocated from Victory Monument to Pin Klao customers had dropped off.
The number of vans running the service had gone down from 70 to 15, they claimed. In addition they blamed hoodlums at Hua Hin bus station associated with a “local political gangster” for causing problems and picking fights. But reviews from customers painted a different view. People said the vehicles were terrible and unreliable and the air-con didn’t even work. When one passenger left something in the van they didn’t get all their property back. Others said it was slow and the female who drove the van was the worst of the lot. She would stop everywhere and take four hours to complete the journey (well under 200 kilometers) from Bangkok to Hua Hin.
The posters were basically saying – good riddance.Facebook.
