No, but find a taxi driver you like (I keep 5 numbers on my phone i.e. Taxi 1, Taxi 2 etc), and ask for his/her card. He will gladly pick you up wherever you need him (or her) from.

Do the red/orange & white 10 baht buses still run? I've always used them but have not seen any running for a few weeks! Yes, Green ones run as per normal but the others appear to have gone missing.

^^ Yes, still running. You might have to wait up to an hour, but if the one that comes is full there'll be another a couple of minutes later (sometimes). Totally unreliable, unlike the other songthaew services.

^^ BTW the fare can be 10 or 20 baht depending on distance (unspecified).

Anyone have an update on the route and schedule for the white songthaews? I waited on soi 94 for over 45 mins and didn't see one. I just got back into town. I had used them in the past. I never saw them go both ways in the past either.

I do see them use Soi 94 very occasionally these days. I think they've gone further out of town, and basically operate what route suits them.
