Ridin’ Line 2 Ubon Ratchathani

Ubon Public Transportation Line 2

When I fist came to Ubon Ratchathani, Line 2 was serviced by a full-sized public bus as a part of Ubon Ratchathani transportation system. During that era I only rode it one time.

I was a bit apprehensive to ride one of these buses due to their obvious state. They must have been in service back in the 60’s or 70’s when Americans and Australians were posted at the Royal Thai Air Force Base, Wing 21.

What I noticed most was their attitude as these white buses made their way down the road. Viewing the vehicle from the front it was easy to see the rear peeking it’s butt out and one side or the other. It appeared as though they were executing a “Tokyo Drift” maneuver while driving in a straight line. Many of the buses also listed to one side or the other like a ship rolling on it’s side just before descending to the bottom of a sea.

The much used buses were finally put to rest and granted a well deserved retirement about a year after I made Ubon my home. They were replaced with the currently used white mini-buses or songtaews.

Line 2, which is white in color, runs south to north from Ubon Ratchathani Train Station to Skill Development Center. It is the line you would take if going to or arriving at the Ubon train station.
