The "SONGTHAEW" (สองแถว) can be found almost everywhere in Thailand. The "SONGTHAEW" acts like a public transportation delivering people and goods at whatever place but on a specific journey agenda. The "SONGTHAEW" can often be found near universities, markets, and so on... They travel on short distance and use roads not accessible by buses.

At rush hours, "SONGTHAEW" are overcrowded with people standing outside and grabbing the bars in order not to fall. In the back, passagers can seat on two benches. On the ceiling, there is a button to press when a passenger wants to get off. The place near the driver is also a place for the passengers. The traveller pays when reaching the destination.

In a "SONGTHAEW", a seat reallocation can happen when a monk needs to have a seat. Women cannot seat near a monk as they could touch him if the vehicle brakes firmly. Sometimes, some stools are set in the middle row.
