Several people on Thursday night were seen at the Bangkok Bus Terminal (Mo Chit 2) in Chatuchak district.
It is expected that many more will leave Bangkok to be with family and friends for the Songkran holidays from April 10-15.
Passengers must wear masks and are required to pass through thermal screening checkpoints before they can enter the boarding areas.
According to The Nation report, Transport Co Ltd., an inter-provincial bus operator, estimated that from Thursday onwards, up to 70,000 people per day would leave Bangkok for the Songkran holidays.
The company has arranged 5,500 bus trips per day to accommodate the passengers at three bus terminals, namely the Mo Chit 2, Ekamai Bus Terminal and Southern Bus Terminal.
“We have also prepared an additional 1,500 bus trips in case more passengers show up, adding to the total capacity of 110,000 passengers per day during Songkran,” said the company.
Due to the latest outbreak of Covid-19, the Transport Co is allowing those who have bought tickets for April 8 to 18 and wish to cancel their trip to get a full refund, the report added.
