50 Baht bus between Patong and Phuket Town (with the 3 benches) still running?


Recommended Posts

Is the 50 Baht bus between Patong and Phuket Town (with the 3 benches) still running?  If yes, but less frequently, how frequently?  I'm considering which town I will book my hotel in.  If I knew the bus was running regularly, I would just focus on price.  Thanks...

I lived opposite the taxi rank and bus stop in Kata beach for many years. And for all that time I saw the drivers sitting around drinking, and the pile of empty beer bottles and even sang som grew every day till the trash picked them up. There, on the ground, for all to see ! I had two lucky escapes ,one big argument, and one miracle of an escape by getting out of a tuc tuc on Karon hill on my way to Patong. The driver was drunk and weaving over the road, so I jumped out !  I had to stop a car to ask for help. That’s when I decided to move away from Phuket. Never had that in Hua Hin, or Bangkok. I often take taxis from Jomtien to Koh Chang, all very good, but they’re KC companies. 
So, if there’s a bus, I’ll use it. I don’t drive a bike, and it’s not worth renting for 4 months.

No.

I'm just at the Patong bus stop now.

 

I asked everyone working around the place and all of them confirmed that bus to Phuket is not working now.
