PATTAYA- after the NCPO had announced to control transportation services such as taxis, minivans and motorcycle taxis in areas like Bangkok and tourism provinces their aim was to focus on the high fares and mafia run taxis. Therefore the 14th military circle had cooperated with Bang Lamung district and Pattaya officers to establish a subcommittee for controlling the motorcycle taxis in Pattaya in order to license all the riders and to clamp down on the mafia run taxis and stations. They had opened a registration centre for the riders to register on the 2nd of July.

In Pattaya there are over 4,000 motorcycle taxis and over 800 motorcycle taxi stations. Each station has a leader who manages the time schedules for each motorcycle rider. Also there are 5-10 motorcycle riders at each station. Before a rider becomes a member of a station they need to buy a jacket for that station. The jacket prices range from around 50,000 baht, plus some were about 2,000,000 baht depending on the stations location.

However most of the riders didn’t have these jackets because the mafias had set up the stations and also they rented the jackets out to the riders from 3,000-10,000 baht per month per jacket depending on the stations location. This would then cause the rider to charge a higher fee for using his or her taxi because they need to pay around 100-300 baht a day for the jacket plus around 100 baht for fuel. It’s hoped that the new controls will reduce these cost which intern will be passed on to the customer.
