Conductor Collecting Money On A Water Bus Running Khlong Saen Saep

Conductor collecting money on a water bus

The conductor walked the cabin and collected money on the water bus

Shot on a water bus running on Saen Saep canal in Bangkok, Thailand.

What with one thing and another, I could get on a water bus that ran Saen Saep canal. The water bus moved on the canal smoothly. No private boats nor cargo boats were on the canal. The canal was divorced from the traffic jam which was notorious in Bangkok.

The system of the water bus was very simple. Although it was difficult to find for me, you go to a pier and wait for the bus coming. And you pay the fare on the bus. The electronic payment was not acceptable. Yet it would become acceptable in the near future because it was acceptable on BTS.

Getting on the bus, a conductor approaches soon. And you have to pay the fare depending on the distance. It was very clear to distinguish who was the conductor. A person who wore a life jacket was the conductor. In this photo, the person who walked between the seat was the conductor and she was just collecting money from passengers.
