Tips for Taking the A1 Bus
The A1 Bus stops at the BTS Mo Chit Station and the MRT Chatuchak Park Station. This location is around halfway between Don Muang Airport and the heart of Bangkok City. Stopping here and transferring to the BTS or MRT is a smart method to escape Bangkok’s awful traffic.
Passengers with children and large baggage may find it difficult to board the A1 Bus at Don Mueang Airport. Inside earlier yellow buses, there is no baggage room and just little capacity in modern blue buses. During rush hour, the buses on the A1 route may also get quite full, so you may have to stand the whole journey to your destination. The travel may take significantly longer than 30 minutes, depending on the time of day and traffic conditions.
Because the A1 Bus is the most frequently used Don Mueang Airport shuttle bus route, you may wait for the next bus to get a seat.
A2 Bus also stops at BTS Mo Chit and MRT Chatuchak Park stations, therefore you may use this route instead. Just be sure to get out at the correct bus stop, since the A2 Bus route carries on to the Victory Monument.
