The Khlong Saen Saep boat service is a water bus operating on the Saen Saep Canal in Bangkok through the city's traffic-congested commercial districts. Khlong Saen Saep boat service has been in operation since 1 October 1990. The service has a checkered reputation due to the polluted water in the canal and the haphazard nature in which the service is operated.

The 18 kilometre route is served by 100 boats of 40-50 seats. It operates from 05:30 to 20:30 daily on weekdays (to 19:00 on weekends). Prices are 8-20 baht, depending on distance traveled. The service carries about 60,000 passengers per day. It is run by a company called Family Transport.[1]

Route[edit]

The service runs between Pom Prap Sattru Phai and Bang Kapi Districts in Bangkok.[2] The Pratu Nam pier in the Pathum Wan-Ratchathewi Districts is a transfer station where passengers change between the western line, which ends at Golden Mount, and the eastern line, which ends at the National Institute of Development Administration (NIDA). Boats pass the Watthana and Huai Khwang Districts, running parallel to Phetburi Road.[3]
