Much better than the minivan service
Bus Express, Roong Reuang Coach (รถรุ่งเรือง), May 7, 2022
I was lucky to get a ticket before. Otherwise I need to wait more than two hours to ride.
Bus Express, Roong Reuang Coach (รถรุ่งเรือง), May 4, 2022
Pick-up was perfectly on time. However the hotline number did not answer my three calls. In addition I expected my call would be returned, that did not happen as well.

Hard to find the boarding point. And the drop off point was changed to Mochit w/o notification.
Van Regional 14pax, T Tour (ทีทัวร์), Apr 21, 2022
Just ok..... It seams the price outweighs the old busses with broken vents and unusable toilets....
Bus Express, Roong Reuang Coach (รถรุ่งเรือง), Apr 20, 2022

Bus Express, Roong Reuang Coach (รถรุ่งเรือง), Apr 11, 2022
Van was supposed to leave at 3.30pm. Instructions were to reach at 3pm at the station. So we reached at 3pm. Van only left at 4plus. Our estimated time on arrival to ekkamai was 6.30pm. We reached at 7.45pm. Driver had zero sense of urgency, making several stops to chat with his buddies on the roadside where there were no one getting off. When for a gas pump, several chatting stops, some dropoffs and only reach Ekkamai more than an hour late. Lucky for us, we weren't rushing for a plane or that plane would have left a long time ago.
