Train, bus, tuk tuk, etc BK to PP

Guys,

Here is a terrific site and primer on how to get from BK to PP by train, Bus, taxi tuk tuk, etc.

The new bus service seems like a terrific way to go. Would like to find out if it is actually running and where/how to get reservation on it.

According to the website above it will take about a 1 1/2 days to get to PP from BK using the existing services. If I had more time it would be a great option.

I have to delay my departure from the US due to a surgery scheduled for my dog. I will be leving on the 17th and arrive late the 18th. As such I will have to transit directly to PP upon arrival in BK. Since I am ariving late I am looking at flying to PP. It is only $95 and gets there the same day in about an hour. But this "new" bus would be a great option if it pans out. Ken, it seems you will be a day or so ahead of me so message me if you take this bus and arrive in one piece .

Upon arrival in PP I am renting a bike so I will not need to "buy" a bike when I get there. But I would like to accompany some of you, look over yor shoulders and offer unsolicited buying advice!!
