The ticket windows are numbered 1 to 10, with the Green Bus Company occupying counter 10. Transport Company Ltd, which is the government bus service, has its own separate ticket counter. In order to buy the ticket you want you need to go to the correct ticket counter. A guide to which counter you need for each service is written in Thai above the row of ticket counters. If you can’t read Thai then go to the Information Kiosk opposite the ticket counters and ask for help. When we last visited in August 2019 the staff in the Information Kiosk were very helpful and spoke reasonably good English.
