There are three basic categories of transport departing from this station: minivans to smaller destinations; ordinary bus services plying the major routes to towns such as Udon Thani and stopping frequently on route to let me off the bus on the highway or at small provincial towns,;and better quality bus services which travel direct to other large towns with relatively few stops on route. Minivans and ordinary bus services can be booked locally and they are very cheap, but often very slow because they stop a lot and often take very indirect routes to drop passengers off at smaller towns and larger villages. The bus services listed below are the better quality and quicker intercity buses which you can, and should, book in advance.
