IMPACT Muang Thong Thani,
one of Asia’s leading venues, will be launching a new “IMPACT Link” city shuttle bus service in May. The service
will provide an alternative transportation option between Bangkok’s city centre and
IMPACT in the North of the city.
Last year, IMPACT hosted more than 300 events and welcomed more than 15
million visitors through its doors. This year, from 28 February to 2 March, a total of 30,000 visitors attended the Bangkok International Jewellery and Gem Exhibition, held at
IMPACT Challenger Hall 1-3. During the event, more than 4,000 limousines, taxis and buses were deployed each day to cater to the transportation
needs of the visitors. The number does not include visitors who traveled to IMPACT using their own
transportation. IMPACT provides six outdoor and two indoor parking areas, which can handle more
than 15,000 vehicles.
The “IMPACT Link” shuttle service
will be operated under a joint partnership between IMPACT and Bangkok-based HongThong Transport – one of
Thailand’s leading transportation companies. A brand new fleet of 15 luxury mini-buses, donning the distinctive logo of IMPACT Muang Thong
Thani will ply the 30 minutes route between the Mo Chit Sky Train Station and IMPACT, departing from each point at 30 minutes intervals. This
daily service is scheduled from 5.30 am to 10 pm. Each trip will cost 30 baht per person and a 5% discount is offered for bulk purchase of 10
Mr Paul Kanjanapas, Managing Director of IMPACT Exhibition Management, which operates IMPACT Muang Thong
Thani, said, “The introduction of IMPACT Link is part of our ongoing commitments to increase our range of transportation solutions to meet increasing demands.
This new service will complement our array of existing transportation services such as limousines, on-call taxis, on-call mini-buses, public buses
and inter-fairground shuttles.”
