At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.

★★★★☆
Worked for us. The driver was going a bit fast though and they really know how to fit people in this little van. However since we needed onwards transportation from Port Barton to St. Vincente the driver was very helpfull to arrange a boat for us - at a slightly increased rate compared to the "normal" fair though.
