Jirasak Yaowatsakul, managing director of the Transport Company, said the company is seeking permission from the Land Transport Department to open a new route linking the Aranyaprathet border checkpoint in Sa Kaew to the Sadao checkpoint in Songkhla.
The route would mostly attract Cambodians who wish to travel to Malaysia, he said.
Jirasak said most Cambodians travelled on chartered vans that often ended up in accidents, so a regular bus service could be safer for them.
Statistics from the two border checkpoints showed that more than 100 Cambodians travelled from Aranyaprathet to Sadao each day, Jirasak said.
He said permission may be granted in about a month.
